Justin Bieber Sentenced to Community Labor in Egging Case
Justin Bieber has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor vandalism charge after he was accused of pelting his neighbor's house with eggs. Bieber's lawyer, Shawn Holley, entered the plea on the behalf of his client at Superior Court in Van Nuys on Wednesday, July 9.
The 20-year-old pop star eventually was sentenced to two years of probation, ordered to attend a 12-week anger management program, take part in 5-day community labor and pay $80,900 in damages. He is also ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from the said neighbor and his family for two years.
Bieber's camp has released a statement following the legal problem. "Justin is glad to get this matter resolved and behind him. He will continue to move forward focusing on his career and his music," the statement read. A hearing is scheduled for August 12 to check his progress.
A neighbor of Beiber in Calabasas claimed that the "Baby" singer threw some eggs at his house in January. A few days later, police raided his house and took some videos from surveillance cameras around the house. During the search, Bieber's friend Lil Za was arrested for drug possession. Lil Za then was sentenced to probation and ordered to seek professional help. The Biebs no longer lives in the area.
