Justin Bieber sentenced to two years' probation and fined $80,000 in egging case
Canadian pop superstar Justin Bieber has been sentenced to two years of probation after pleading no contest to a charge of misdemeanour vandalism in connection with the egging of his neighbour's home.
The 20-year old, who was not present at the California court hearing, was also told to pay $80,900 (£47,160) in damages and must serve five days worth of community service as well as completing a full anger management programme.
The singer, who is currently facing criminal charges over incidents in Florida and Toronto, was charged after a search was conducted at his home in Casablancas, California and police discovered surveillance footage that seemed to show Bieber high-fiving friends and celebrating after throwing eggs at his neighbour's home.
Issuing a statement after the verdict, representatives for the second said Bieber was glad the case had now been resolved, saying "Justin is glad to get this matter resolved and behind him. He will continue to move forward focusing on his career and his music."
Bieber, who is working on the follow-up to his mutil-million selling 2012 album Believe, is also facing a charge of driving under the influence and driving without a valid licence, he is due in court in Miami to answer those charges. He is also accused by prosecutors in Toronto of assaulting a limosine driver in December.
