On Thursday (August 22), during the 22-year-old rapper's change of plea hearing, Kodak told the judge he was now pleading guilty after initially pleading not guilty to lying on federal gun applications.
Kodak pled guilty to two counts of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement in connection with the acquisition of a firearm, TMZ reports. He now reportedly faces a maximum of 10 years in prison followed by 3 years of supervised release. According to the plea agreement, obtained by the entertainment news outlet, prosecutors say "they'll push for a lighter sentence than the maximum because Kodak has been cooperative."
As fans know, Kodak, who is also facing up to 30 years in prison for an on-going sexually assault case, has remained behind bars since being arrested at Rolling Loud Festival in May. At the time, Judge Federico Moreno ruled that the South Florida rapper was a "danger to the community" in Florida, revoking his previously set $500,000 bond after a grand jury found he made false statements to try and purchase firearms.
"I’m very concerned with the type of guns he wanted to get a hold of ... and that he has a prior [criminal history]," Judge Moreno said per The Miami Herald.
Kodak's sentencing is set for November 13.
