Justin Bieber

D.A. Doesn't Want CELEBRITY JUSTICE

EXCLUSIVE

The L.A. County District Attorney wants to make sure Justin Bieber is treated like Joe Schmoe when they charge him with egging his neighbor's house ... and that's why the case hasn't been filed.

Law enforcement sources involved in the case tell TMZ ... prosecutors are still evaluating 2 factors in deciding whether to charge Bieber with a misdemeanor or a felony.  First, the D.A. is digging deep into the exact amount of damage the yoking cost the homeowner. 

As we first reported ... the homeowner submitted estimates to the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. putting the total tab at around $20K.

The D.A. is also looking at similar cases they and other law enforcement agencies have prosecuted, to determine if a misdemeanor or a felony is most appropriate.  They don't want this to look like "celebrity justice."  The complicating factor -- they've already charged Lil Za with FELONY vandalism for breaking a $400 jail phone.

Our sources say the amount of damage isn't the only factor.  The egregiousness of the act is also a big factor. 

Notice we are not couching this post by saying Bieber might not be charged.  That's because we're told he will be charged ... the only issue is whether it's a misdemeanor or a felony.  If you're betting, go with the former.

I don't think it's egregious to charge Lil Za for going roid rage on a telephone that was city property.

Even if the damage was less than $20,000 it's definitely enough damage to make it a felony. And since The Bieb is legally an adult it should definitely be charged as a felony. It wasn't some harmless childish prank a 12 might do. He hates the neighbor and wanted to do damage. Fry him like an egg.

Bull crap...if he were joe schmoe it would have been filed by now. Make example out of these people so the rest of this country stops doing this crap. At least he can afford legal fees, most people on here don't have an extra 10K to waste. Bust his ass. CA has to be the most liberal state.

At haters get a life jealously is a bitch. Throwing eggs at someone's house is immature, but wasting thousands of dollars by putting someone in jail for it is ridiculous. If their was "damages" then make him pay for it with his money. It's Justin Bieber a lot of people didn't like him from the beginning and now that he's made mistakes people take them and try and use them as valid reasons to hate him. If Justin's going to get deported it should be based on his actions of doing a serious crime, not because a bunch of jealous guys and brain washed women signed a petition. Serious I was on Yahoo, and social apps on my phone, and YouTube a few days ago and tons of comments said deport Bieber because he's gay. Society has always wanted to see Justin fall from the start, they could of signed a petition or make on to get him into rehab but no they want to take problem they created and get rid of it which is wrong the constant ridicule Justin has got since 2009 had made him the guy he is today depressed, confused, and insecure. Justin's the most visible person yet the most isolated person as well. Sad

DA has no spine or doesn't want to put in the work, which is why we have the crime we do, but they go after law abiding citizens denying their 2A rights. get off your a$$ and do your jobs anything over a grand is felony.
