The attorney for hip-hop artist Kodak Black, who was sentenced to three years in prison for falsifying information on federal forms to buy firearms, ripped the plea deal given to Hunter Biden, who had admitted to the facts of a similar crime.
Biden received a pretrial diversion agreement over the gun charge; Black was sentenced in 2019 but had a 46-month sentence commuted in 2021 by former President Trump.
“There’s no such thing as not getting jail time on a gun charge on any kind of gun charge,” Bradford Cohen, Black’s criminal defense attorney told Fox News Digital. He added on Instagram, “2 tiers of justice? Kodak was charged for the same crime. Got over 3 years. Mr. Biden will not serve a day. Feels right? Do FBI agents and federal authorities take cases personally?”
“I’ve never seen anyone where this offense was charged,” Cohen pointed out, “and they didn’t get some sort of prison sentence. And in fact, most of the time in federal court, you very rarely see people get anything but a prison sentence.”
“A federal crime is supposed to be a federal crime,” Cohen continued. “And federal crimes are supposed to be very serious federal crimes, and that’s why you look at prison sentences. … I think that this is like, you know, they figured the easiest way for them to save face [was] to charge him, not give him prison, and then hope that [Joe] Biden doesn’t give him a pardon until he’s on his way out.”
Black, who had a prior criminal record, admitted he had lied on background check forms while buying more than one firearm; two of the guns were later found by the police at crime scenes, according to prosecutors.
“Young people do stupid things,” U.S. District Court Judge Federico Moreno told Black at his trial. “But the problem is that you’ve been doing stupid things since you were 15.”
“I’m sorry for the actions that led me for where I’m standing,” Black said before he was sentenced. “I do take full responsibility for my mishap.”
Hunter Biden answered “no” to a question on a background-check questionnaire asking, “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” He had been discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine Five years prior to that.
At the beginning of March, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) warned Attorney General Merrick Garland of potentially criminal evidence against Hunter Biden, saying, “Recent lawfully protected whistleblower disclosures to my office indicate that the Justice Department and the FBI had at one time over a dozen sources who provided potentially criminal information relating to Hunter Biden. … The alleged volume and similarity of the information would demand that the Justice Department investigate the truth and accuracy of the information.”
