Update (February 5, 2014):
Justin’s attorneys are on top of his legal proceedings in Miami. They’ve already filed a written plea of not guilty for his three misdemeanors, canceling his February 14 arraignment date.
He now has a sounding date for February 19 and a trial date in front of a judge set for March 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter. See you then, Biebs!
Original story (January 28, 2014):
Believe it or not, it’s been almost a week since Justin Bieber ended up in handcuffs in Miami Beach, Florida. How time does fly when you’re tracking the latest blood alcohol levels of teen pop stars.
Charged with resisting arrest without violence, driving with an expired license, and DUI, the Biebs spent most of January 23 at Miami-Dade County Jail. He appeared in an orange jumpsuit before a judge who doled out the charges and set Justin’s $2,500 bail, which the 19-year-old soon after posted before heading back to his rented mansion.
But just because he’s out free and living it up in Panama, don’t think Justin’s legal woes are over. He’s still got to face those charges. His next day in court? It just happens to be Valentine’s Day.
Justin’s case will be heard by Judge William Altfield in the County Criminal Division on February 14, but don’t set your hearts on seeing Justin in court. It’s unlikely he’ll show up in person seeing as it’s not required. His legal team — as headed by celebrity attorney Roy Black — will probably take lead on this first appearance.
That’ll free the Biebs up to wine and dine his rumored new gal pal, Chantel Jeffries, and, we hope, stay away from fast cars.
