Justin Bieber pleads guilty in Florida case

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

    “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.” Smart move.

    Too bad there is no way Canada can revoke his citizenship.
    Maybe we’ll get lucky and he’ll renounce and become a U.S. citizen, then he could be barred from Canada.

    I think it is really sad when there are two laws. One for the rich and famous and one for the poor. If this had been some poor unknown kid that had never caused any trouble before, but for some reason done something as stupid as this and got caught, he would have had the book thrown at him, and had his life ruined. Have Justin got to kill or seriously harm someone before he is taken accountable for his actions. Not giving him parole incase he does something in the future?????

    U.S. Laws….the rich & famous get away with murder while the poor & unknown get hung.

    If he broke the law in the future…do bears crap in the Canadian woods (ha,ha). Too much money, too few brains!

    WOW!! So he practically said “I am GOING to break the law in the future.. Just making sure when I do I don’t have to worry about spending time in jail”. He has a smart lawyer cause he would never figure that out himself..Oh if only there was a way to have him barred from Canada Mike..I would sign that petition. Of course he can do what he wants..if we have learned anything we know people with money especially celebrities can get away with most anything..The US has made that possible for them..I say stay there in the US and keep your sorry trouble making ass away from our country.

    It’s time this kid and yes I mean kid needs to grow up. He is becoming an embarrassment to Canadians. I know the papers blow thing out of proportion but they can’t be wrong on so many things. You have the world by the tail kid get with the program and make us proud of you instead of embarrassed by you
