Chief Keef’s lawyers met with a Cook County judge in a mandatory Dec. 12 court hearing on behalf of the beleaguered rap star who is currently undergoing rehab in California.
Lawyers say Sosa is making progress, but this may be the “Hate Being Sober” rapper’s last chance to redeem himself in the eyes of the law.
“I’ve had murderers who haven’t had so much time before this court. It’s getting ridiculous. …I’m very happy he’s doing well, but if he comes back dirty, I’m done. This is it,” Judge Earl Hoffenberg said, according to the Chicago Tribune.
In mid-October, a judge ordered Chief Keef to serve 20 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation after testing positive for marijuana, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Sosa was released a few days later for good behavior.
But Keef soon found himself back in jail Nov. 7 after failing yet another drug test.
Chief Keef was granted permission to enter drug treatment at the Promises Treatment Center, a California-based private facility. Several notable celebrities have entered the drug-treatment, including Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.
A judge initially ordered Chief Keef to undergo 90 days of drug treatment at the Haymarket Center on Chicago’s West Side.
Sosa will spend his first 30 days in the facility. He will be able to work following that phase depending on his 30-day progress report, the Tribune reports.
Sosa was placed on probation following a speeding arrest in June.
Northfield Police clocked Sosa driving 110 mph on the Edens Expressway. Keef’s arrest came following a performance in Davenport, Iowa.
Chief Keef plead guilty to the charge and was fined $531, placed on probation for 18 months, ordered to perform 60 hours community service, undergo random drug testing and complete eight hours of traffic school.
