Lil Za Plea Deal -- Cops to Felony Drug Possession In Justin Bieber Raid

Breaking News

Lil Za just struck a plea deal in his felony drug and vandalism case ... pleading no contest to felony drug possession ... but if he follows the rules ... the judge will cut him a break.

TMZ broke the story ... Za was charged with 2 counts of felony drug possession -- for Ecstasy and Oxycodone -- after cops found drugs near him during their raid in January at Justin Bieber's house.

Za has to do 20 hours of Caltrans labor -- picking up trash.  And he has to complete a drug program.  Once he completes both requirements, the felony will be reduced to a misdemeanor.

Za -- who is repped by attorney Shawn Holley -- also pled no contest to misdemeanor vandalism for breaking the jailhouse telephone.  He has to pay $600 for the phone.

It's interesting ... Za cops a plea as the D.A. decides whether to charge Bieber with a misdemeanor or a felony for the egging case.
