Kodak Black’s Attorneys Claim Oxycodone Pills Were Prescribed

Media Take Out Staff |

Kodak Black’s attorneys claim that the 31 oxycodone pills he was found with during his arrest last week were prescribed by a doctor.

Bradford Cohen, Yak’s attorney, told TMZ the rapper has “battled chronic pain” since he was shot in Los Angeles during Super Bowl LVI weekend.

Cohen called the pain killers “necessary.”

Cohen also raised Kodak’s alleged assault by Kentucky federal prison guards before he was released in 2021. Kodak needs the medication for “ongoing pain from the attack.”

Just days ago, his attorney claimed he wanted the pills to be tested by a third party.

“It is impossible … to explore a defense on behalf of [Kodak] without being able to inspect, weigh, and independently test the substances,” Cohen said in a statement. “[It’s] essential to ensure his right to a fair hearing, his right to confrontation, his right to prepare a defense on his own behalf, his right to effective assistance to counsel, and due process of law pursuant to the protections afforded to him by the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and the Florida Constitution.”
