Justin Bieber, 20, has reached a plea deal after his arrest in January for charges of DUI and drag racing in Miami. Justin is expected to plead guilty to the lesser charges of careless driving and resisting arrest without violence, instead of the original DUI charge. He won’t receive any jail time but instead will attend a 12-hour anger management course and make a $50,000 charitable donation, as well as pay the court-ordered fines.
The pop singer made sure the plea deal would not include probation because he could face jail time if he broke the law in the future. In July, Justin was in hot water for throwing eggs at a neighbor’s house in Los Angeles. He paid about $80,000 in restitution after he pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor vandalism.
Justin’s new plea deal makes sense as his arresting officer in Florida said Justin was drag racing and that police could smell alcohol on his breath but a test done afterwards revealed practically no alcohol in Justin’s system around the time of his arrest. ~Andrea Hodgins
