Justin Bieber

GOING TO TRIAL

In DUI Case

2/25/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

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.

Your Calling them Retards???? If he is put in jail after his trial! THERE IS NO BAIL HE WILL BE SENTENCED! NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IN THIS WORLD CAN BAIL YOU OUT AFTER YOU ARE SENTENCED BECAUSE THERE IS NO BAIL! NO BAIL YOUR NOT GETTING OUT! SO SORRY IF HE DOES GET JAIL TIME NOT SAYING I HOPE HE DOES SORRY HE WON'T BE OUT 2 MIN LATTER. IT TOOK HIM LONGER THEN 2 MIN TO GET OUT LAST TIME, DAMN THEY MADE HIS ASS GO TO COURT IN ORANGE TO GET BAIL SET ON SIMPLE DUI AND MISTEMINER CHARGES! MAYBE THAT IS JUST HOW FLORIDA DOES IT. BUT I KNOW WHEN YOU BAIL OUT ANY OTHER PLACE YOUR BAIL IS SET AT THE JAIL AND YOU BAIL OUT THERE NOT AT COURT UNLESS YOU HAVE A NO BAIL HOLD! THEN YOU HAVE TO GO TO COURT TO HAVE A BAIL HEARING! JUST SAYING!

I just read this on another news website "In January when he was nabbed in Miami Beach for drunken driving and admitted he was high on pot, antidepressants and beer. The "Never Say Never" singer was reportedly "crying his eyes out" in the holding cell." HAAAHAAAHAAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
CRYING HIS EYES OUT? So much for being a tough guy, what a ****in wimp, *****, big baby!! Boohooo!

Seriously?    

The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 (23 U.S.C. § 158) was passed on July 17, 1984 by the United States Congress. It punished every state that allowed persons below 21 years to purchase and publicly possess alcoholic beverages by reducing its annual federal highway apportionment by ten percent. But then there are states with WITH THERE OWN RULES, on private, non alcohol-selling premises, with parental consent in 29 states Examples: private home, private office, or private property with parental presence and consent Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming. THEN IF YOU READ ON:4. for medical purposes in 16 states Example: medical treatment prescribed or administered by a licensed physician Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Utah, Washington, Wyoming So BIEBER IS ONLY DRINKING FOR MEDICAL PURPOSES. LOL

MisfitOfSociety    

We're all humans and have great amounts of pressure on us. When someone's hurting, be there. We could all use more compassion. More compassion, understanding, and tolerance we need to have for each other, less judgment and critique. Justin has been diagnosed with depression for over 5 months, and has tried OD multiple times his friend who stopped him spoke out about it. You people who degrade Justin or signed that petition to get him deported are disgusting and the ones who are destroying society not Justin. People don't change just because look at Justin honestly look at him he's clearly hurting from what YOU ignorant people did to him how about grow up, mature, and own up to what you did instead of blaming innocent others. The media is the one who blamed his friends not him. You could sign a petition to get him into rehab so he could get help, BUT no you would rather just put the problem you created far away. Karma's a bitch and it has no due date. How you can say Justin Bieber is a douche bag is just smh, do the world a favor and please don't reproduce. I wish the best for Justin and I hope he gets the help he needs soon. Justin Bieber is a human is a trending topic on Twitter for a reason.

Guys I hate to break this to you their maybe another plea deal in the work. Here What I have heard and here the shocking part Justin may off this to them That he will plea guilty to Reckless driving and all he has to do is have a interlocking device for a year and 5 month and fine of 1,000 dollar and he will do a Charity event in miami beach. he going to offer that to them in a plea deal if they drop the DUI/resitting arrest charges. He flet like the 1,000 dollars since he has drove with a expired licsense before.


Canada has a different set of rules up their yeah if he would to agree to the first deal all he would of had to do is go up their for the rest of the year. Your usa record doesn't show up their you may have a felony down here in the usa but up their you do not and you would walk the next day. as long as you do not have any on your record up their their know not to follow USA laws. Remember up their where he lived the legal drink age is 19 years old. but if you have 0.02 BAC that a ticketable offense their legal limt is 0.08 as well.

Is expired Georgia license is interesting to know what happened --- was renewal letter sent to his old address? Can he renew if he is now permanent resident in California? Don't many other people move between the states -- isn't it stupid to have 50 State license jurisdictions? Wouldn't it make more sense to transfer drivers license to a federal jurisdiction?

Funny how everything Justin did just serves to highlight the stupidity of American laws --- you can vote and pay tax at 18 years you can learn to drive at 16 years even if your feet aren't too short to reach the pedal but you can't drink till you're 21 years!
