The warrants that halted the rapper’s release from jail come to light.
The 19-year-old rapper born Dieuson Octave is already in prison and was scheduled to be released last week after striking a plea deal to remain under house arrest for a year, followed by five years of probation.
The deal was halted when Broward County authorities found a pair of additional arrest warrants from St. Lucie City, Florida and Florence, South Carolina.
“One of them is a no-bond hold… At this point he’s still going to be in jail. He’s not going to be released,” Joy Oglesby, a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s office, told the Sun Sentinel last week.
The St. Lucie City warrant was a misdemeanor marijuana charge, but the Florence warrant was for sexual battery, a crime that, by itself, can carry a 30 year sentence in the state of Florida.
“According to investigators, on or about February 7, 2016 Octave is alleged to have engaged in the sexual battery of the victim at a hotel located at 2120 West Lucas Street, Florence, SC,” Major Michael N. Nunn told XXL in an email.
