Judge Denies Prosecutors' Request To Place Chief Keef In Jail
Chief Keef is off the hook for his alleged probation violation - for now.
Cook County Juvenile Court Judge Carl Anthony Walker ruled today (January 2) that Chief Keef could remain free in light of allegations that the rapper violated his probation by moving to a new home.
The Chicago Tribune reports that Judge Walker found no "credible evidence" that Keef moved without telling authorities, which would have violated the 17-year-old's parole.
In making his ruling, the Judge denied prosecutors' request, which was to have the rapper sit in jail until a full hearing later in the month.
Prosecutors alleged that Keef changed his address and failed to notify his probation officer. Currently, the Windy City rapper is on probation after a juvenile conviction for pointing a gun at a police oficer.
A formal hearing on the probation violation is set for January 28.
