According to reports from TMZ, the rapper’s attorney, Bradford Cohen says Kodak was recently transferred to USP Thomson, a high-security prison in Illinois. Kodak says the guards at this facility are treating him better than back in Kentucky.
The rapper’s change of scenery comes after reports that he filed a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Prisons for alleged torture, in which he claimed his life was a living hell at Big Sandy maximum security prison. Just 2 weeks after Kodak filed his lawsuit, he was transferred from Big Sandy to FTC Oklahoma City. A few days after that, he was transferred to Thomson.Kodak’s attorney also says he spoke with Kodak Black on the phone on Wednesday, which is when the rapper told him he was glad to be out of Big Sandy–One reasons being that the guards at Thomson are more professional.
Even though the Florida native and his attorney think he’s in a better situation than before, it still is not ideal. Black is now roughly 1,500 miles away from his family in Florida, which obviously maked it harder for them to visit, if they were to ever get the chance post-coronavirus.As for his visitation and commissary situation, Kodak still idn’t happy, claiming he’s only been able to speak to his legal team after last year’s fight with guards in a Miami prison. Kodak’s attorney went on to tell the publication that he hopes to get the rapper’s privileges fully reinstated within the next several months.
