Kodak Black was back in court for a 2nd day on Friday, April 21, facing several probation violation charges.
The 19-year old “No Flocking” rapper, born Dieuson Octave, is accused of disrupting and getting kicked out of a court mandated anger management class, attacking a bartender at a Miami strip club and leaving the state of Florida to attend an Adrien Broner boxing match without permission from his probation officer.
Bartender Jennifer Cunningham testified on the 1st day of the trial that Black allegedly attacked her while at Club Lexx gentlemen’s club. But under cross ecamination she admitted to not seeking medical help until after she had contacted a lawyer.
Cunningham also admitted to calling Black’s manager threatening a lawsuit.
On Friday, Cunningham’s testimony was undermined by another bartender who was working that night.
Tonya Durham told Broward Circuit Judge Michael Lynch, that it was Cunningham who attacked Black and that he was in a defensive posture, leaning back with his hands up.
Durham said she did not see the rapper kick Cunningham.
Black has already turned down a plea deal from prosecutors. He is staring at up to 8 years in prison if found guilty of violating his probation. Since a probation violation does not require a jury to determine guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, Lynch will have to make the determination.
