Justin Bieber

GOING TO TRIAL

In DUI Case

Justin Bieber
and Miami Beach prosecutors will NOT strike a plea deal in his DUI case ... and sources connected with the case say a trial is now almost certain.

TMZ broke the story ... prosecutors are offering a no contest plea to reckless driving, with strings attached ... notably Justin must submit to random drug testing for 6 to 9 months.  Sources connected with Bieber say they will NOT accept any plea that has probationary terms ... especially drug testing.

Now law enforcement sources tell us ... they will not deal if Justin does not agree to random drug testing ... period.  As a result, both sides are at an impasse.

With a plea deal all but off the table, a trial is likely.  Law enforcement sources acknowledge there are problems with the arresting officers ... the fact that he may have lied when he said he smelled alcohol on Justin's breath (he blew a .014).  And another cop claimed Justin was drag racing (at 27 MPH).

Nonetheless ... we're told prosecutors are not afraid of trying the case.  And Justin's famed lawyer, Roy Black, is ready for a courtroom battle.

At stake -- Justin could be tried for 3 offenses ... DUI, resisting arrest, and driving on an expired license.  Worst case scenario -- 2 1/2 years in jail.

Um TMZ just because you noted him going 27 at some point around the time he was racing...doesn't let him off the hook lmao (lets be real here...given the context of a little guy like him driving a lambo with his track record; I think it'd be fair to say that he's guilty). Stop trying to defend this little ****in' twerp.

He was driving with Suspended license ( knowingly) 4+ months! Resisting arrest (age, out of state) DUI ( failed video taped sobriety test) What case does this Lawyer have? The plea was a sweet deal for all the charges.

Once the defense proves they were not racing and falsely pulled over the entire case with self destruct for the DA and will/should be thrown out. "Fruit of the Poisonous tree"

It bears repeating: Justin Bieber will not do any jail time. ANYBODY who is worth over $100 million is not going to do any jail time on these charges.

This idiot thinks he is going to get a fair trial. All of the crap he has done in the last year and a half has put a target on his hairless behind. I hope they put him in gen pop.

Well he is obviously guilty of resisting arrest and driving on a expired licence. Hes really gonna have to take drug tests and alcohol classes like everyone else. Stop waisting your time and own up to your actions. Be a man... Not a whiney little b*&%$

The case will be tossed. Policeman is a know liar. Why he is still on the force when he can be so easily discredited is beyond me.

DUI isn't only related to alcohol. His drug tests came back positive for pot and xanax. He was still driving impaired. The good news is that a conviction might get his visa revoked.
