Rapper Kodak Black’s Lawyer Calls Out “Two Tiers of Justice” After Hunter Biden’s Lenient Sentence
“Kodak was charged for the same crime. Got over 3 years,” Bradford Cohen, a Florida-based criminal attorney, wrote in an Instagram post. “Mr. Biden will not serve a day. Feels right? Do FBI agents and federal authorities take cases personally?”
Biden and Black were both charged with possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance. Black—then 22 years old with prior convictions—was sentenced to over three years in federal prison but was pardoned by then-president Donald Trump the day before President Joe Biden’s inauguration. Hunter Biden struck a plea deal with the Justice Department Tuesday on two counts of willful failure to pay federal income tax and agreed to a pretrial diversion agreement on his gun charge.
Black had been previously arrested in 2015 on charges of robbery, battery, two counts of false imprisonment of a child under 13 years of age, three counts of false imprisonment of an adult, driving with a suspended license, and possession of marijuana. He was also arrested twice in 2016 on possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, fleeing from law enforcement, armed robbery, and false imprisonment.
“After 26 years, I have yet to have a plea in a case with an illegal possession of a weapon and tax evasion, that did not come with some kind of prison sentence,” Cohen said in a Twitter post on the same day. “Indigents charged the same way would be getting jail time.”
The Washington Free Beacon‘s reporting earlier this month chronicled Biden’s drug use in the days surrounding the gun purchase that led to federal charges.
CNN Host Dismisses Claims of “Two Tiers of Justice”
CNN host Dana Bash said Tuesday that Republican allegations that there are “two tiers of justice” for Democrats and Republicans are unfounded.
“We can’t say this enough,” Bash said. “There is no evidence to prove it at all.”
