Paparazzo Involved In Justin Bieber Car Chase Plans To Plead Not Guilty!

Justin Bieber Paparazzo Court Case

Not so fast…!

Remember last month when the pesky paparazzo, Paul Raef — who trailed Justin Bieber down the 101 Freeway — officially got charged???

Raef’s four charges fell under California’s brand new “Paparazzi Law,” with him being the very first person ever charged…and he’s not too happy about it!

Now, the photog is planning on pleading NOT guilty in court, defending his actions by comparing them to that of a news reporter racing to the scene of a breaking story!

Um…we’re not quite sure this is the same thing, Paul!!

Raef and his lawyer are now saying that the new law strips the pap of his First Amendment right — freedom of the press!!

The new law, however, aims to prevent dangerous situations from occurring, by punishing those who create them for cash!

The pap's lawyer has asked the judge to dismiss the charges and the judge still has yet to make a ruling.

For bieby sakes, we hope he pays big time!

    Beiber should be charged as well. He had no right to put others in danger.

    What he doesn't realise is that his actions put others in danger. Sure the PAP was chasing him, however was he causing any harm? No, absolutely not. He was most likely driving at a safe speed until Justin went faster therefore he had to follow. lol Justin's an idiot

    "Clearance Auto" says that in states where it is permitted, will raise your rates based on your credit score. So if your credit situation has changed for the better by an appreciable amount, it is to your advantage to go shop around.

    Re: rosebud99 – LOOK BIEBER HAS THE RIGHT TO DRIVE DOWN ANY PUBIC HIGHWAY AS OF ALL OF US. IF THE JUDGE THROW THIS CASE HE OR SHE NEED TO THROW JUSTIN BIEBER SPEEDING TICKET OUT THEN. THE PAPARAZZO IS ACT LIKE THE KID NOW WELL I WAS CHASING HIM TO GET THE NEWS STORY HEY PAPARAZZO WHAT NEWS STORY. THE POLICE OFFICER WHO PULLED BIEBER OVER SAW HIM MOST LIKE PLUS THE LICSENCE PLATE NUMBER. IF YOU WANT BIEBER TO PAY THE TICKET YOU BETTER BE FOR THIS PAPARAZZO BE PUNISH HE SHOULD PLEA GUILTIY BECAUSE HE WILL JUST PAY A FINE TO 3,500 DOLLAR IF HE DOESN'T HE RISKING JAIL. PEOPLE WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN THIS SITURATION. WOULD YOU PLEA NOT GUILTIY OR PLEA GUILTY AND JUST PAY THE FINE.

    Re: jazmeenjoni – THEY KNEW WHERE HE WAS GOING! BECAUSE HE WAS THEIR RIGHT ACT THE FLIMING SET WITH CAMRA IN HAND. HE DID IT BEFORE I JUST THINK IT NOT FAIR TO PUNISH ONE PARTY FOR THE SAME THING SO IF THE STATE OF CAL DOESN'T WANT A HARASSMENT LAWSUIT ON THEM BY JUSTIN AND HE WIN IN FEDRAL COURT REMEBER YOU FINES WILL DOUBLE. MY GIRLFRIEND DAD IS IN LA RIGHT NOW WAITING FOR A CALL TO FILE A LAWSUIT YES HE ON HIS TEAM THE LAWYER I DIDN'T KNOW THAT AND HE'S PISS I JUST TALK TO HIM. WHICH MEAN CALI WILL OWN JUSTIN MONEY FOR DAMGES OF NAME AND HE WILL ALSO TAKE IT TO THE UNTID STATE SURPREME COURT. HE JUST HANDLE THE FEDRAL LAWS USELY. HE HOPE FOR THEM TO DISMISS THE CHARGE ON THE PAPARAZZO BECAUSE IF IT THE DO. HE WILL LOVE IT.

    My girlfriend dad is licking his lips right now. oh and hear his record of win and lose 500 in case wins to 200 in case lost but a 100 of those lost is a plea deal. plus he a former DA and a former minn state trooper. When he was a DA he just got tierd of dirty cops that all he deal with. and the same with the state trooper job but he was let go nine month before he became a DA. Now he's has a high set of clients and I was just lucky of to get him as my lawyer to I havn't had to use him only one time when I got pulled over and he was in the car by chance i had a crack window down the passanger side the cop goes that a danger. He cough the cop look down and he was fliping his lawyer card around I do not think it that dangerous for him he can see the road it not on his line of sight so techily your in more danger then him for harrassing. he said nice a clam. the poluce let me off with a warning. about a week later the same police officer got into a little bit of touble he got caught stealing baseball card out of the local casey gas station. he sold them on ebay.

    I would not want to be a judge for either thing. If they throw or dissmiss this case the the other judge will either have to throw justin bieber ticket out or dismiss. The paparazzo better think this threw. If justin bieber pays the ticket my girlfriebds dad will help him appeal it. say it invoilentd his privetecy rights. and he will win he just finsh up a case in new mexico and he won it. because he didn't wave his right to privetecy. then it most likey will go to the surpreme court and they will win it he's convice me and I'm hard to convice even my girlfriend little brother is convice to a he a hard @ss. He said it geting boring in cal wait. I just his secturty I just answer the phne his my girlfriend is the legal assaint to him so when he not hear and a case comes up they talk to her. She can be anooying as hell if you know what I mean she will make any snap.

    You people make me sick. Yes I know what he did was wrong but what the paparazzo did was even wronger. He chasing down a 18 year old kid and he a 30 year the paparazoo need to stop acting like a little kid and take some respousablilty as a man. If he hasn't lean that we are a fuck up nation. No wonder were not a greatest nation in match and since. Any body can put on a camra and say that they paparazzo including rapist, childmoslter, and murders. they want to be treat as news people. WE NEED TO LICSENSE THEM AS PAPARAZZO AND MAKE THEM CARRY IT. My Girlfriend dad use to live in cal. he told me a little story he was driving to his work when he was in college he was on the freeway driving when this idoit comes down the road driving around 75 mph it a 45 mph zone and the dude cut him off with out even singaling he slam on his brakes the other car behind him runs into the back of him the guy saw and took off didn't stop offer any aid. he called the police to make a report and did they tade information. and off he went he got a cab he found out later that the same guy was in the store taking a picture of a celebs.

    Re: rosebud99 – Yes, Justin should I have a fine to pay, and this is coming from a Belieber, but you said he had no right to put others in danger. He was being chased! That is his first insticnt. You have no say on who should punished. You are not in the jury, you are not the judge and you are not the poilce. If you were to remeber the Princess Diana story. She was being chased and now both her and the driver of the vehiecal are dead. So why you are saying this just because this is Justin Bieber, you need to be a happy that innocent people lives were not lost. Including Justin's.

    And I have seen your comments on other post. You should know how to spell by now. And it's I before E except after C. Learn how to spell. IT'S BIEBER!

    SINCERLY, A BELIEBER :)

    Re: lyang – you really believe that a paprazzi was going at a "safe speed"? You really belive that? After all the cases of paps and the trials against paps, you really really belive that?! Yes, Justin was going at a dangerous speed but the past of what I heard about pap's I don't trust any of them. No matter what the case is with any famous people, the paps are almost always at fault. And after Justin was pulled over by the cops and was let go, they were STILL FOLLOWING HIM AT A HIGH SPEED! Ad what did Justin do? Instead of speeding away, HE called the police. So get all of your facts stright sweetheart. You are just saying this because he is JUSTIN BIEBER!!



  13. 13

    THAT LESBIAN SHOULD BE SLAP OF SPEEDING CHARGES……………..SHE BROKE THE LAW……DEPORT ….DEPORT….DEPORT….DEPORT….DEPORT THAT LESBIAN TO CANADA WHERE THAT LESBIAN BELONG.

    Re: BelieberBabe – JUSTIN GOT A SPEEDING TICKET. THAT A FINE PEOPLE. DO YOUR FACTS CHECKING. AND THE PAPARAZZO WOULD OF GOT THE SAME IF HE PULLED OVER. JUSTIN ADMITED SPEEDING HE TAKE RESPOSNBILTY FOR HIS ACTION NOW IT TIME FOR THE PAPARAZZO TO MAN UP AND TAKE HALF OF THE BLAME ALL I JUST GOT TO SAY IF THE JUSTIN BIEBER THIER WHEN THE TRAIL COME TO OPEN HE GOING TO FIND OUT WHAT IT LIKE BEING IN THE LIME LIGHT I FEEL SORRY FOR THE PAPARAZZO HE WASN'T ARRESTED HE HAS TO GO IN BEFORE THE TRAIL DATE IS SET SO THE WILL KEEP PUSH IT BACK AND BACK AND BACK AND BACK UNITIL THE STATUE OF LIMTSTASION UP FOR HE CAN WIN THE APPEAL PROSECESION BASE ON THAT. THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS JUSTIN TICKET CASE WILL COME UP AND IF HE PAYS THE TICKET. THE PAPARAZZO MADE THEN HAVE TO DEAL WITH A SYPERHIC JURY FOR JUSTIN WHICH MEAN A GUILTY VEDRICT JUST BECAUSE THE FEEL SORRY FOR JUSTIN AND THEN THAT MEAN JUSTIN THEN CAN APPEAL HIS TICKET A WIN. EITHER WAVE THE PAPARAZZO IS SCREW.



  15. 15

    HE THE PAPARAZZO NEED TO MAN UP AND ADMIT HE MADE A MISTAKE FOR CHASING BIEBER. BUT HE WON'T HE SCARE OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO HIM IF HE ADMITED IT. HE NOW IS BEING A CHICKEN. JUST MAN UP ADMIT THE MOST LIKEY YOU WILL GET IS A 3,500 IF EVEN THAT THEY PROBALY WILL CUT IN HALF IF HE ADMITS IT DOWN TO 2,500 HE LAWYER BETTER BE SURE HE CAN WIN IF HE CAN'T HE IN A LOT MORE TROUBLE I WOULDN'T RISK JAIL WOULD YOU. HE HAS A LITTLE BETTER CHANCE OF STAYING OUT OF JAIL IF HE PLEA GULITY MY GIRLFRIEND DAD SAID. WHY WOULD YOU EVEN RISK A JAIL SENTANCE HIS LAWYER BETTER TRY TO CONVICT HIM TO PLEA GUILTY OR HE IN DEEPER SHIT BECAUSE HE ALL OVER THE NEWS NO MATTER WHERE HE GOES THEIR WILL NOT BE A FAIR TRAIL. I WOULDN'T RISK IT WOULD YOU.

    Re: lyang – Yes but so does Justin bieber it a pubic road way which mean Justin had the right to to drive down the road. I hate to break the lawyers little heart but before they look at first adamendment He will also have to put in that a celeb wave their rights to privetecy before they can take a look at it. Which the bills of rights over shadow the consution. So he can of out of luck with that challange. My girlfriend dad try to get them to look at the law and they said nope. Now in most state chosing to disobay the light and siern is a felony So realy the paparazzo better feel lucky



  17. 17

    My question is to you would your rather be charge with the felony or a misdourmeader. because on the cal law it only a misdourmeander but if they good back it will be a felony fleeing and staking that could be even more year in jail instead of one year. He pettery dumb to change the law if you think about it. the longer he holds up the trail the more guilty he looks in my eye. what about you people and perez. How do you feel about the paparazzi honsty



  18. 18

    Re: rosebud99 – HEAR WHAT I THINK OF NOW IF YOU WANT JUSTIN BIEBER TO PAY THE TICKET. YOU HAVE TO BE ON HIS SIDE BUT IF YOU DON'T WANT HIM TO PAY THE TICKET YOU HAVE TO BE ON THE PAPARAZZO SIDE. IF THE CASE GET DISMISS THEY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE, BUT TO DISMISS JUSTIN BIEBER TICKET. YES, BUT JUSTIN ADMITTED SPEEDING TO GET AWAY FROM THE PAPARAZZO. PLUS A CELEBS DRIVING DOWN A FREEWAY IS NOT A NEWS STORY YEAH MAYBE AFTER IT WAS BUT WHAT CAUSE IT TO BE A NEWS STORY IS THE PAPARAZZI CHASING HIM. HE DOESN'T KNOW WHO CHASING HIM AND WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO TO HIM. NOW IF THAT GUY WASN'T A PAPARAZZO ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO SAID JUSTIN BIEBER SHOULD BE CHARGE. WOULD OF BEEN ON THE POLICE @SS ABOUT SOME STRANGER CHASING A 18 YEAR OLD KID. YOU GUYS NEED TO COME TO IOWA AND SEE WHAT GOING ON HE ABOUT EVERY TWO WEEK WE GET A REPORT OF ATTEMPTED ABDUCTION. AND THE CAR IS DISCRIBE AS A OLD WHITE VAN WITH TINT WINDOWS AND NO BACK WINDOWS. THE COPS HAVE NOT CATCH THEM YET. SHOW IF YOU HAVE A FOOTBALL GAME OR GATRADE GAME IN IOWA BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR THAT VAN. IT STARTED IN PERRY IOWA WENT TO ADM WENT GRIMES AND THE PLEASNT HILL AND THEN COLO. I SEEN A WHITE VAN IN A PARKING LOT I LOOK TO SEE IF THEY ARE TALKING TO KIDS. MOST OF THEM DO ARE EMPTY. THE IOWA STATE PATROL AND THE COUNTY SHIEF ARE LOOKING FOR THEM. WILL BE A LOT OF SECURITY AT SOME OF THOSE WEEK 0 FOOTBALL GAMES IN IOWA.



  19. 19

    NOW IF THAT JUDGE DISMISS THIS CASE HE BETTER MOVED OUT OF STATE OR DISMISS JUSTIN BIEBER TICKET. IT TARGET A CERTIN GROUP OF PEOPLE A IT PREVENT THEM DOING THEIR JOB LIKE A NEWS REPORT. WELL THE PAPARAZZI TARGET A CERTIN GROUP OF PEOPLE TO JUST BECAUSE THEIR FAMOUS. AKA CELEB. HEY LAWYER YOU JUST CONDICT YOUR SHELF THEIR. PAPARAZZO JUST ADMIT IT ALL YOU WILL GET IS THE FINE MOST LIKEY. I RATHER PAY THE FINE THEN GO TO JAIL. HE STUIPED NOT TO PLEA GUILTY IF THEY DO DISMISS THIS CASE THE JUSTIN BIEBER JUDGE WILL HAVE TO DISMISS HIS TICKET IF HE ALREADY PAY IT HE CAN FILE A LAWSUIT ON THE CHP TO GET THE MONEY BACK. SAY IT WAS A POTICAL FAVOR FOR THE LA CITY COUNCILMEN I DO NOT THINK THE JUDGE WILL WANT THAT BOOK OPEN.



  20. 20

    I Hope the Judge does dismiss this case It will send the wrong message to the Kids. It will tell them it ok to be follow by a stranger. That Judge need to take a look at what going on in Iowa a couple of days ago we had another attempted abudution in a city call waukee. People are now a are scare in iowa we tell or kids never talk to stanger. What he or she will do if she dismiss this case would be tell kids it ok to be follow and it not. take a look google it a you will fine out how many atempted abudution have take place in the last two month.

    Re: bluejays – Correction I hope the doesn't dismiss this case.

    Re: SARAH PALIN IS NUT – Hey do he got a speeding ticket. of 100,000.000. Wgat did the paparazzo get for chasing him answer me. He the paparazzo got nothing not even a speeding ticket for and he didn't get arrested at the scence like it said. So now the paparazzi are now news guy ok follow someone to work how is that news. I want this case to go foward because it will send a strong message to the paparazzi you do something to break the law you will get punish. Let go back to the wayy it was a charge him with a felony fleeing. I how the paparazzo wants that he flead the police. Justin did not. a felony can't vote in the election. Now does the paparazzi realy want that. I do not think so Hey perez ask what the paparazzi think. He need to ber punish It's only fair he doesn't get punish then Justin Bieber shouldn't get punish.
    They dismiss this case they then need to dismiss Justin Bieber ticket simple as that would you want that to happen.



  23. 23

    The paparazzo want freedom of the press then Just throw everything out including Justin bieber speeding ticket. maybe the Justin will put a restaining order on the paparazzi. He won't like that will he. He what I will do if I was Judge I would order the guy to pay a speeding ticket Just Like Justin Bieber got and put a restaining order on him for Justin Bieber. I wounder if the city councialman did call would we have heard of this I highley doubt it. Plus he has a right to privetecy. now if it was a normal person I bet they would told the camra's to scram. google up on you tube you will fine out what I am saying.
