At a hearing in Miami on Tuesday (March 11), Bieber’s hearing date was set for May 5. His trial was originally scheduled to begin on March 3, but was postponed while his lawyers handled the release of police videos that showed the singer submitting to a urine test in a police station.
At the same hearing, prosecutors said that, contrary to reports, Bieber has not been offered a plea deal the case. In late January, he pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver’s license.
The new trial date is just the latest legal development for Bieber this week: On Monday, TMZ released portions of a video deposition he gave in connection to a lawsuit filed by paparazzo Jeffery Binion, who claimed that Justin and one of his bodyguards roughed him up and tried to take a memory card from his camera.
He’s also facing assault charges in his native Canada, stemming from an alleged incident with a limousine drive in Toronto. A hearing on that case occurred on Monday, though Bieber was not present. Instead, his lawyer, Seth Weinstein, appeared before a judge to answer to that charge.
