Sources connected with the case say that Bieber and prosecutors have not been able to come to agreement on a plea deal. With that, although it's not 100 percent, those sources say a trial is now nearly certain.

As we reported earlier, the hang up on the no-contest plea deal appears to be the mandatory random drug testing that Bieber would have to allow, for six to nine months. According to earlier and current reports, Bieber won't accept a deal that includes probationary terms, especially drug testing.

Law enforcement sources, however, say that no deal will take place if Bieber does not agree to the random drug testing.

Bieber could be confident: Law enforcement sources agree that there are issues with the case, including the report saying that Bieber smelled of alcohol when he blew a miniscule 0.014, and the claim that Bieber was drag racing when GPS records show he was going only 27 MPH.

Despite this, prosecutors are not backing down. On the other side of things, Bieber's lawyer, Roy Black, is ready for a protracted courtroom battle.

Bieber could be tried on three charges: DUI, resisting arrest, and driving with an expired license. The expired license would seem pretty cut and dried, but wouldn't require much "punishment," per se. The worst case scenario would be that Bieber could spend up to 2 1/2 years behind bars.
