Despite not completing the terms of his sentence, Justin Bieber’s lawyer announced that the singer is making progress on his probation terms following the vandalism case filed against him after he threw eggs at his neighbor’s house last July.
According to his attorney, Shawn Holley, Bieber wasn’t able to complete the five days of community labor due to a soccer injury. On Tuesday, she filed a report saying that Bieber suffered a severe ankle sprain while playing soccer and also added a chiropractor report that ordered him to avoid any physical exercise during the first week of January.
The singer’s attorney also told the judge that Bieber is making great progress and all probation terms are expected to be fulfilled by the next court date, which has been set to May 11. According to the report, other reasons why Bieber failed to complete his sentence were time in the recording studio and also having to attend several television programs. Superior court judge Leland B. Harris was satisfied with the report and decided to follow the recommendation of probation officials and allowed Bieber more time to finish his sentence.
Last July, Justin Bieber pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism after he assaulted his neighbor and threw eggs at his house. The sentence included five days of community service, 12 mandatory anger management sessions and $80,900 he had to pay his neighbor. According to the probation report, the restitution has been paid and Bieber attended 9 anger management sessions and even though he has yet to finish the sentence, probation officer Darlene Montalvo wrote that he “has displayed a cooperative attitude and has expressed a sincere desire to be more diligent in completing anger management and community labor.”
