Justin Bieber to be offered plea deal in egging case: Report

Earlier, we reported that Justin Bieber would reject a plea bargain in his Miami DUI case over random drug testing, but that won't be an issue in this new plea bargain. The new deal, offered in Bieber's egging case, would involve no jail time and only informal probation, TMZ reported Wednesday.

According to anonymous sources cited by the celebrity news website, while Justin Bieber will be charged for allegedly egging his neighbor's house, the case will probably never go to trial. Reportedly, the Los Angeles County District Attorney has contacted Bieber's lawyer, Howard Weitzman, and asked for a meeting to discuss a possible deal. Any plea bargain would apparently include restitution for the egging damage, which as we have reported earlier has been estimated to be approximately $20,000, because of the ornate design of the house exterior.

If this deal were to take place, Bieber would pay for the damage, as well as plead no contest to misdemeanor vandalism. The "Baby" singer would not serve any jail time and be placed on informal probation.

While the D.A. is happy with a misdemeanor charge, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is not. The department wants Bieber charged with a felony for two reasons: a) because the egging was intentional, b) because the estimated value of the damage is above the level for a misdemeanor. The D.A., though, feels Bieber's crime is more prank than felony.

Sources said that the Weitzman / D.A. meeting has not yet taken place, but reportedly the case could still be resolved as early as next week.
