Rapper Kodak Black’s lawyer suggested there are “two tiers of justice” on Tuesday after Hunter Biden received no prison time and no felony convictions for the same federal weapons crime that stuck the rapper with a sentence of three years in federal prison.
“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.
