Chief Keef sentenced to 90 days in drug rehab


According to DNAinfo, Chief Keef has been ordered into a 90-day residential drug treatment program. After violating his parole with two failed drug tests, the 18-year-old rapper, born Keith Cozart, was sentenced to 20 days in a Chicago jail last month. However, due to overcrowding, he was released just eight days into his sentence. Keef was back in court on Wednesday afternoon, where a judge ordered him into the treatment program at the West Side-based Haymarket Center.

During the court’s proceedings, Keef used social media to update his followers. At 3:10 pm CT, he tweeted, “In court Finna go to Jail Judge Wants to send me Back” before posting this photo on Instagram, which reads, “Judge Putting me Back in jail See y’all later,” accompanied by a sad face and waving hand Emoticons.

In May, Keef was arrested for speeding after going 110 in a 55 mph zone, and was also cited for having too many passengers in his vehicle (Keef had a learner’s permit, which allows for just one passenger.) Under terms of his plea deal, Keef was sentenced to 18-months probation, ordered to perform 60 hours of community service, and fined $531. He was also ordered to complete eight hours of traffic school, and submit to random drug testing.

Keef also remains on probation in Illinois stemming from an incident in 2011 in which he pulled a gun on a police officer. Earlier this year, he was sentenced to 60 days in prison for violating his probation after he was filmed firing at a gun range in a promotional interview. In September, he was found in contempt of court after failing to pay child support.
