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.

    WHY THAT JUDGE DID THAT? I HOPE HE WILL GET BEHIND THE BARS AND THE PERFECT BEATS HE IS SPITTING OVER WILL BE GIVEN TO SOMEONE WHO IS MORE CAPABLE THAN THIS CLOWN. HE SHOULD BE DOING 25 TO LIFE JUST FOR DESTROYING HIP-HOP'S CREDIBILITY AND BLACK CULTURE AS A WHOLE.

    Chief keef is whack as fuck. I don't get how he's even popular. Where do they find these cats?! He's the reason everyone and there grandma thinks they can rap. Prolly because they can rap just as good as he does. The kids garbage, he has no lyrical content, he ain't shit. Anyone can point a gun and rap shitty verses about it over extremely well produced beats.
