Kodak Black Gets Prison Transfer After Suing Over Alleged Torture
Kodak Black is digging his new dig … he was moved out of the Kentucky jail where he claimed to have been tortured.
The rapper’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ … Kodak was recently transferred to USP Thomson, a high security prison in Illinois, where KB says the guards treat him better than in Kentucky.
Kodak’s change of scenery comes after our first report on his lawsuit against Federal Bureau of Prisons for alleged torture … he claimed his life was hell in Big Sandy Maximum Security Prison.
The BOP tells us that Kodak moved from Big Sandy to FTC Oklahoma City on October 5 – just 2 weeks after Kodak filed its complaint – and a few days later, Kodak moved to Thomson.
BTW … the BOP tells us that FTC Oklahoma City acts as a transfer hub, which is why the federal government again moved Kodak shortly after it arrived.
Kodak’s attorney said he spoke with KB on the phone on Wednesday, and KB told him he was glad he was no longer at Big Sandy. One reason – Cohen says Kodak told him Thomson’s guards were more professional.
We contacted prison officials to find out the reason for the transfer, but they did not comment.
While Kodak’s lawyer says the rapper is a better situation that before, that is still not ideal … he is now 1,500 miles from his family in Florida, which will make it more difficult for them to visit, if given the chance.
We are told Kodak is still unhappy with his visits and being a commissioner, saying he was only able to speak to his legal team after last year’s fight with guards in a prison from Miami.
Kodak’s lawyer tells us he hopes the rapper’s privileges will be fully restored in the coming months.
Our sincere thanks to
