In On Your Case, I describe Justin Bieber’s self-inflicted legal woes to examine the (too) many ways teens get in trouble with the law. Sadly, the fresh-faced star could teach a master class in misbehavior, and his record (criminal, not musical) may prove to be his lasting legacy.
In Miami, the Associated Press reports, Justin pleaded guilty to charges of careless driving and resisting arrest made after he participated in what police called illegal street racing that pitted his rented Lamborghini against a Ferrari helmed by an R&B singer. (No word on who won.)
The Florida judge sentenced Bieber to an anger management course and a $500 fine, plus a $50,000 contribution to charity, and said he hoped the star would “grow up” and “use his talents positively for young persons.”
