Good news for Kodak Black.

The 22-year old, who's in the midst of a 46-month federal prison sentence for weapons offenses, is no longer facing gun charges in the state of Florida.

His lawyer, the very busy Bradford Cohen, has worked out a deal in which Black's two counts of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person have been dismissed.  Each count carried up to 15 years.

"The State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and her team sat down with me and listened to everything I had to say about Kodak," Cohen told The Blast.  "At the end of the conversation, they were concerned that he couldn't get into the court-ordered drug treatment with an open case and a max security prison. They agreed that the fair thing to do was to dismiss the case, so he can attend drug treatment and a lower security prison."

Earlier this year, Black settled his case with New York state for trying to take a gun through the Canada-to-United States border, getting 12 months which will run concurrently with his federal time.

He is still facing up to 30 years in South Carolina for sexually assaulting a high school student. 

His federal release date is August 14th, 2022
