LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) – Pop star Justin Bieber pleaded no contest to misdemeanour vandalism on Wednesday for pelting a neighbor’s home with eggs and was sentenced to two years probation, the Los Angeles County District Attorney said.
The 20-year-old Bieber, who was not present in Los Angeles Superior Court for his arraignment, was also ordered to pay US$80,900 (100,436) in restitution, serve five days community service and complete an anger management programme in what the district attorney called a negotiated settlement.
“Justin is glad to get this matter resolved and behind him,” Bieber’s representatives said in a statement. “He will continue to move forward focusing on his career and his music.”
