The Florida State Attorney was nice enough to offer Justin Bieber a plea deal in his DUI case, but as I’m sure you remember, he didn’t want to take it because it would mean he’d have to submit to ongoing drug tests, and he loves his weed and Sizzurp far too much for all that. He was willing to take another plea deal, of course, so long as it had zero restrictions and enforced absolutely no punishment on him in any way.
Well, prosecutors have sent a big F-U his way and they’re sending his case to trial. As TMZ explains:
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.
Ugh, of course he won’t go to jail. He might get probation, IF THAT, because money talks, clearly. I certainly wish they’d throw his ass in a cell and throw away the key, but I doubt we’ll get that lucky.
