Teenage Chicago rapper Chief Keef has found himself in trouble with the law once again as he has been sentenced to 90 days in Cook County Jail’s rehab facility on a probation violation.
According to ABC Chicago, a Cook County judge has sentenced Chief Keef, real name Keith Cozart, to 90 days in a rehab facility that is associated with the Cook County Department of Corrections.
Keef’s sentence stems from a failed random drug test ordered by the court for a July traffic charge in which he was arrested for driving at an excessive speed in a northern suburb of Chicago.
A condition of Keef’s release on those charges was that he must take random drug tests.
The drug test Keef failed was back in September, and his lawyer said marijuana was found in his system.
Just after 3PM CST when getting word that he was going back to jail, Keef took to Twitter to let his fans and followers know his fate, as he tweeted:
Soon after Keef’s tweet, the Cook County Sheriff’s Dept. confirmed that the rapper was back in custody and was on his way to Chicago’s Cook County Jail.
The “I Don’t Like” rapper’s 90-day sentence comes just about 2-weeks after being released from jail on October 23rd for a prior probation violation for testing positive for marijuana.
Chief Keef is due back in court April 3rd, 2014.
