This kid just can’t get right…
Chief Keef Arrested Shortly After Leaving Court For Speeding Charge
Rapper Keith Cozart, better known as Chief Keef, was arrested blocks from the Skokie Courthouse only minutes after he pleaded guilty to speeding 110 mph on the Edens Expressway last month.
Cozart was blocks from the courthouse when he was arrested by Chicago police officers, officials said.
Leah Starkman, Cozart’s lawyer, said he was arrested after his court hearing on a misdemeanor trespassing charge. Starkman didn’t know the details of the arrest, but said he was in custody at the Grand Crossing District station, 7040 S. Cottage Grove Ave., on Chicago’s South Side.
She said she believes police were waiting from him to leave the Skokie courthouse.
“He’s still being processed,” she said. “I haven’t seen the paperwork.”
The 17-year-old rapper who has been arrested several times recently had pleaded guilty this morning to speeding and was later scolded by the judge who ordered him not to drive.
“You think you’re invincible, and you’re certainly not,” said Cook County Circuit Court Judge Earl Hoffenberg. “Violate (conditions of the plea agreement) and you’ll find out you’re not. … I sure hope I don’t see you again, because if I do you better be ready to go to jail.”
Welp…hopefully Keef is prepared.
Under sentencing guidelines for the Class A misdemeanor, Cozart could have been sentenced to a year in prison and fined up to $2,500. But the judge fined him $531, put him on probation for 18 months, ordered him perform 60 hours community service, and undergo random drug testing. He must also complete eight hours of traffic school.
Dressed in a black T-shirt, plaid shorts, sneakers, and wearing a gold chain, Cozart made no comment in court.
“If I were you, I wouldn’t take this deal if you can’t follow these conditions,” Hoffenberg said.
“I’m really not sympathetic to people who don’t listen to me,” the judge added.
Yeah sure, prison sucks, but from the looks of things Mr. Keef could use some time to reflect on his life choices and re-evaluate what’s important to him.
