Justin Bieber

DUI Plea Deal Offered

No Sizzurp, No Weed

EXCLUSIVE

0221-bieber-01
Justin Bieber has become the next contestant in a high-stakes game of Let's Make a Deal ... and door #1 is JAIL.  Door #2 is way better, but he has to be sober.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the Florida State Attorney has offered Justin a plea deal in his DUI/resisting arrest case ...  and we know the terms.

Prosecutors will DROP the DUI and resisting arrest charges, but in return Bieber must:

-- Plead no contest to reckless driving 

-- Complete 40 hours of community service

-- Attend an alcohol ed course

-- Attend a "victim impact panel" (where relatives of DUI victims share their stories)

-- Install an ignition interlock device for 3 months

Now here's the rub.  Prosecutors also want Bieber to submit to random drug testing, and not just in Florida.  He'll have to submit his travel plans to the court and authorities will set up random testing wherever he happens to be ... at his expense.  And testing will last between 6 and 9 months.

Assuming he complies with all the terms and PASSES the drug tests, the reduced plea will formally be entered.

The question -- Will Bieber accept the deal or risk trial, where worst case scenario he could end up in the pokey.

How can they put an ignition interlock device in his car, when he has no licence. This is nuts. I guess when your a star. They make it easy on them. Let it be me, jail and no plea deal. He will always do wrong. When your a star, you don't get behind bars.

These charges aren't uncommon.. very few people get a felony on their first DUI. I know three people who have gotten DUI's and all got reckless driving charges, community service, and an alcohol course. Your second offense is when they have no sympathy

What happened to US law that states a foreigner convicted of breaking the law was to be deported, why is that not in the options bucket he's getting? Heck, follow the law and deport this punk.
