UPDATE: Chief Keef Ordered To Rehab
Yesterday it was reported that Chicago teen rapper Chief Keef was sent to jail
for violating his probation. Today, more details about the case emerged.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the judge presiding over the case ordered Keef to undergo 90 days of drug treatment instead of serving jail time. You can read the official report below.
"Keith Cozart, known as the rap artist Chief Keef, is back in custody after failing two drug tests and is due to appear in court today to determine where he should undergo drug treatment, officials said.
A judge on Wednesday had ordered Cozart to undergo 90 days of drug treatment at the Haymarket Center, a residential treatment center on the West Side.
But Cook County sheriff’s officials delayed sending him there pending a hearing today to clarify with the judge whether he intended that Cozart be housed in a facility that is not guarded, sheriff’s spokesman Ben Breit said."
