Kodak was accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old girl at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Florence County in February 2016 while the rapper was in town to perform at a nightclub. He allegedly forced the victim against her will and was accused of biting her on her neck and breast. The teen reported the crime to her school nurse, who informed the police of the allegations.
Kodak was released from the Florence County Detention Center in December of 2016 on a $100,000 bond.
In January, he had a prior federal weapons conviction commuted by Donald Trump on his last day in office.
