A rapper arrested in Sioux Falls in June 2017 after airport security found marijuana edibles and blunts in his bag pleaded no contest to possessing a controlled substance Friday morning.
Keith Farrelle Cozart, also known as Chief Keef, pleaded no contest to possession of a controlled substance, a Class 5 felony punishable by up to five years in prison. No contest is a plea that allows a defendant to not admit to the actions, but allows the court to treat him as if he entered a guilty plea.
He was given a suspended imposition of sentence, meaning no conviction will be entered as long as he meets the conditions set by a judge. A defendant can receive a suspended imposition of sentence once in their lifetime in South Dakota.
Judge Jon Sogn set the conditions as no Class 1 misdemeanors or above for one year. If Cozart complies with those terms, a conviction will not be formally entered. Cozart was ordered to pay a $500 fine, $104 in court costs and $99 in testing fees. Other charges, including possession of marijuana, were dismissed.
