Kodak Black may be getting out of jail a lot sooner than we expected! Earlier this year, videos of Kodak Black’s house getting raided by police, during a live steam, flooded the internet. He subsequently appeared in a bail hearing for 7 charges.

Well during the hearing for bail, Kodak was ordered to remain in jail and denied bail. However, news has just broke that the presiding judge over Kodak’s case has been banned for making “highly inappropriate” comments.

On January 19th, while preparing for first appearance hearings, Broward County senior, Judge Joel Lazarus, was holding a conversation with the prosecutor, which was mistakenly picked up by a hot microphone. Lazarus told the prosecutor that he would “double the bond for those that take place in my neighborhood.” He also stated, “closer to my house, the higher the bond. That was always the Lazarus rule.”

Just minutes after Judge Joel Lazarus made these remarks, Kodak Black was denied bond. Although the judge now is claiming to have been joking, the Broward County Chief Judge has barred Lazarus from anything involving criminal court.

So what does this mean for Florida native, Mr. Black? Well, he and his legal team are feeling hopeful that the misconduct of the judge will positively impact Kodak’s outcome. He is currently still being held in jail on the seven charges, but his legal representatives are actively working to get him another bail hearing. It is still unclear if he will be released soon, but you know the Live Squad will be the first to know any updates!
