Chief Keef Escapes Jail Time For Possible Probation Violation, But Still Faces Another Hearing Later This Month


Chicago rapper Chief Keef has avoided jail time for an alleged probation violation.


Keef, real name, Keith Cozart, was accused of moving to Northbrook, Illinois without telling authorities. He was also accused of not checking in with his probation officer since the December 18 release of his debut album, Finally Rich. Prosecutors sought to have the 17-year old locked up pending a full hearing later this month.

Keef's attorney argued that he had been spending time at the Northbrook home of his manager recording music at the studio there.

After hearing testimony from Keef's probation officer, Juvenile Court Judge Carl Anthony Walker ruled that there was no "credible evidence" that the rapper had moved to Northbrook according to the Chicago Tribune.

Keef is on on probation after a juvenile conviction for pointing a gun at a police office. He still faces a hearing on on January 28, 2013 for another alleged probation violation for holding a gun during a 2012 interview with Pitchfork at a gun range in New York.

Pitchfork has since taken the video down, but have been ordered by a judge to turn over the footage, as it will be used to determine if Keef should be sent back to juvenile detention for firing weapons.
