Chief Keef Taken Into Police Custody for Violating Probation

Posted By on January 16, 2013

After more than half a year of maneuvering the prosecutors that have been pursuing a probation revocation for Rapper and Chicago Native Chief Keef, received at least a preliminary victory. The probation stemmed from a 2011 incident in which the rapper reportedly brandished a fire arm at police officers on multiple occasions. He was eventually given 18 months on probation.

Based on a report from the Chicago Sun Times, The rapper appeared in a juvenile court in Cook County, IL where a Judge found him guilty of violating the conditions of his probation which stated that he could not have any contact with firearms. The accusations that led to the violation hearing stem from an interview that Keef gave at a gun range in New York. The interview was videotaped and the tape allegedly shows the young rapper handling a firearm.

After the judge found him guilty, he ordered him remanded into custody where he will be held in Juvenile detention until Thursday, January 17, 2013, when He will be sentenced. The range of punishment that he can receive can be very broad. He could finish out the remainder of his probated sentence in Juvenile Custody or he could have to sit it out in Cook County Jail, which is an adult facility.
