We had reported earlier how Justin Bieber was expected to take a plea deal today, and the news has just come in!
Justin is officially a guilty man!
Well, he pleaded guilty to charges of careless driving and resisting arrest, and avoided jail time in the process!
In exchange for this plea deal struck with prosecutors, Justin will have to attend a 12-hour anger management course.
In addition, he had to make a $50,000 charitable contribution, a donation which he has already made to a local children's organization.
Oh, and he was also given a whopping $500 fine. How WILL he recover?!
As part of the deal, Justin was not convicted of a DUI, and the charge of driving with expired license was dropped after Justin proved he had a valid one.
Miami-Dade County Judge, William Altfield, had a message for Bieber, who was not present at the hearing:
"I hope that he realizes that his actions not only lead to consequences that affect him but they lead to consequences that affect others that are looking up to him as a role model. He just hopefully will get the message. He will grow up. He will use his talents positively for young persons."
Although this may mark the end of another of Justin's legal woes, he's still charged with assualting a limo driver in Toronto, and is currently being sued by a photographer in Miami who says he got beat up after taking pics of Bizzle outside a recording studio.
We hope all this judicial drama teaches Justin a lesson!
