Kodak Black gets prison transfer after suing over alleged torture in old one
After complaining of torture at the high-security USP Big Sandy in Kentucky, rapper Kodak Black can now breathe a sigh of relief after he was transferred following a lawsuit he filed.
The “Zeze” rapper relocated from USP Big Sandy in Kentucky to an Oklahoma City transfer facility before eventually arriving at Illinois’ USP Thomson earlier this month.
The rapper’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, confirmed the transfer to TMZ. He was transferred on 5 October, a fortnight after he filed a lawsuit against prison authorities at Big Sandy.
Days after he sued the Federal Bureau of Prisons for alleged torture and religious suppression, Kodak Black’s legal team reportedly petitioned Donald Trump to commute his 46-month sentence in a federal weapons case.
The petition stated that Kodak had been suffering continuing abuse from guards, with the rapper “being placed by guards in a backless paper gown on a 4-point restraint for more than 6 hours… with no access to a bathroom.”
In the suit, Kodak claimed that he was being constantly beaten up by guards who also emotionally abuse him.
While the move to Illinois is welcome, the rapper is reportedly still unhappy with being incarcerated 1500 miles away from his family. He is also unhappy with his visitation and commissary situation.
