Kodak Black, born Bill K. Kapri, has been transferred to a high-security federal prison in Illinois.
According to his lawyer Bradford Cohen, the transfer comes one month after the Florida rapper filed a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Prisons stating that he was being abused and tortured. Black was moved from the USP Big Sandy in Kentucky, to a facility in Oklahoma City to where he is currently, USP Thomson.
In the suit, Kodak alleged that the conditions at the Big Sandy facility amounted to emotional and physical abuse, particularly at the hands of guards. At the time, Kodak asked to be moved to a lower security facility.
Bill has been moved to OKC detention center in anticipation of him being moved to a new prison a week after we filed our lawsuit for abuse and denial of religious freedom in Washington DC.Bradford Cohen
We are hopeful its a move consistent with the Presidents First Step Act mandate and they move him to within 500 miles of his home and he is afforded the treatment the Judge Ordered in his case. We are optimistic that BOP will follow the mandates and not send him further away in retribution of the lawsuit. #prisonreform #justicereform #kodakblack @kodakblack.Bradford Cohen
