Justin Bieber

Plea Deal Underway

In Egging Case

Justin Bieber
will be charged with a crime for allegedly egging his neighbor's house, but the case will probably never go to trial ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

Our sources say the L.A. County D.A. has contacted Bieber's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, and asked for a meeting to discuss restitution for the egging damage -- which the neighbor puts at $20K.

We're told the discussion between Weitzman and the prosecutor will center around paying for the damage, and pleading no contest to misdemeanor vandalism.  Bieber would serve no jail time and be placed on informal probation.

The short of it all -- the case would be over before it begins.  Bieber will be charged, the plea bargain will be entered and it would then be case closed.

Our sources say the D.A. and the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. are at odds over the case.  The Sheriff wants Bieber charged with a FELONY because the egging was intentional and it caused a huge amount of damage.  The D.A., we're told, thinks Bieber's hijinks does not rise to the level of a felony ... and a misdemeanor is more appropriate.

We're told Weitzman has not met with the D.A. yet but that should happen shortly.  It looks like this case could be resolved as early as next week.

You know, I watched this rude little bastard talking with attorneys. I can now see why there used to be cruel, and usual punishments. Some one needs to get this rude little bitch, out of this country for good. You know Canada is laughing at us, because of celebrities running in one door of the jail, and out 5 minutes later. The Judicial sytem in California is a joke. I wish one of your judges would get some hair, and take care of this little prick.

Misdemeanor probation in California typically lasts for between one and three years (though it can last up to five) and involves conditions like paying fines and performing community labor. Instead of checking in with a probation officer, as is the case with felony probation, people placed on misdemeanor probation are required to appear before a judge for periodic "progress reports." Misdemeanor probation is also referred to as summary probation or informal probation.

It would be nice, just once, to see an LA County DA grow some kind of backbone.
