Kodak Black has finally found out his sentence. According to the Sun-Sentinal, after being found guilty of violating the terms of his probation, a judge today sentenced the Florida rapper to 364 days in jail. It’s not all bad new however. According to the terms of his sentence, Kodak could be out again as soon as a month from now, so long as he completes a set of life skills courses with in jail.

The sentence is something of a middle ground between two competing parties. The prosecutors wanted to put Kodak away for eight years, while his Florida Department of Corrections probation officer, Sandra Friedman, recommended a scant 30 days jail mixed in with an additional year of house arrest. For his part, Kodak accepted the outcome, while admitting that sound of his mother crying outside of the courtroom after he was found guilty, “pierced my heart.”

Kodak has been locked up since his arrest back in February for violating the terms of his probation, stemming from a 2016 case where he was charged with strong arm robbery, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a delinquent and fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement. He broke his court-mandated restrictions by attending various events outside of his home including a visit to a strip club as well as the Adrien Broner fight in Cincinnati.
