Justin Bieber charged with vandalism, takes plea, will pay $80K to fix to egg damage to nearby home
Celebrity attorney Shawn Holley entered the no-contest plea on Bieber’s behalf.
The county sheriff’s office had called for the case to be charged as a felony because of the amount of damage caused, but the DA’s office announced Wednesday that Bieber is facing a misdemeanor vandalism count, according to the Associated Press.
Following the January incident, Bieber sold his Calabasas home to Khloe Kardashian for a little over $7 million, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Bieber was charged in January in a a driving-under-the-influence case in South Florida and turned himself in that same month to authorities in Toronto concerning a charge that he assaulted a limousine driver in December.
Bieber’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman, has said Bieber did nothing wrong in Canada, and described the case there as equivalent to a misdemeanor. Weitzman could not immediately be reached for comment concerning the Los Angeles case, the AP reports.
Bieber’s representative provided a written statement to CNN which says “Justin is glad to get this matter resolved and behind him. He will continue to move forward focusing on his career and his music.”
