Justin Bieber

DUI Plea Deal Offered

No Sizzurp, No Weed

2/22/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.

This idiot is another Lohan in the making in that he theoretically has a 6 to 9 month sentence where he has to be on the straight and narrow anf it will all go away.


But this little puke will most certainly violate these terms and will end up back in front of a judge who will add more time for him to have to comply to.


Just like Lohan taking 7 years to to complete a 1 year probation ruling.

I kind know they where going offer a plea deal. Like this because look. They do not want to go on trial a risk losing the case. Plus I read florida underages drink law if some one blow under the 0.02 mark or above it you Just recive a ticket you do not go to Jail. Why now To be maybe the after tmz told them about the officer interaffairs record It seem a little strange unless the officer has his Vacation that week and they do not want to pay him to come in to court. I do not know maybe they realize they do not know enough evedince and they realize he wa force to take a blood draw without a warrent. We will see if Justin take it This may get Roy black knows now they do not have enough evedince now for a strong convicts and the Florida state attorney doesn't want that officer to go on the stand. They have no evedince if the traffic stop being legal. That why they want him to plea. We will see he may take the deal. No the state has to pay that if they want. They know they do not have a case now They have no rader readings and he has a computer device could spelled trouble for them. He has a sci-lawyer on his team . We will see if he takes the deal or not. They will do two plea deals the first one won't usely be expected but the second one will be usely.

Unless this "deal" is offered to everyone else in arrested for the same thing it should not be allowed. Florida has gotten the reputation of "white People can do anything including murder and just walk away.
No deal to Bieber , treat him just like he was a young Black or Latino.

I hate bieber but theres no way he is going to take this. reckless driving is still a misdemeanor and that's still a lot of constraints. it doesnt sound like they have a very strong case either. I'd rather go to trial than accept that. even if he does lose he'll probably be out in a few days due to "overcrowding." he would violate the terms of that plea deal so fast thats probably why they offered it.

Of course he was offered a plea deal, rich little boys don't go to jail or have to pay for they're wrong doings. I wonder what he had to do sign CDs, free concert tickets.

Justin, don't take the deal. They have no case here but you do - leaking those particular photos for example is one of it.

Assuming he takes the deal -- what substances are they testing for and what happens when he fails - because there is no way he is going to comply and everyone knows it.

This guy looks like a young lesbian. Non wonder he is acting out. The only people that "love" him are users and abusers.

I think this is good, maybe the courts can do something that his parents can't, Mother I'm talking about. His father is a jerk. Hope this wakes him up, if not, a good time in jail.

That's a crock, anyone else on this planet let alone his age, would get jail time. Whatever tmz.

Now maybe EVERYONE will leave the guy alone. It's sad braided what he has accomplished in such a short period of time. People have to hate on him. I'm sure the haters will leave him alone as soon as the next young handsome star come along. Too much jealousy and hate in this world. I'm sure if more people had a life they wouldn't be so focused on what JB is doing. Also, I'm sure all this negative attention he's getting is making it easier for him do things.
