HollywoodLife.com spoke to former New York prosecutor Raoul Felder, who says that when Justin goes in for questioning, there’s a huge chance that he’ll get thrown behind bars — read on to find out why!
Justin Bieber has a huge mess on his hands. The 18-year-old popstar allegedly attacked a photographer on May 26 while on a date with his girlfriend Selena Gomez. But now that he’s left for Europe, does this mean he’ll avoid being questioned?
Raoul Felder tells HollywoodLife.com that the only way Justin will get out of being questioned is if his attorney’s can prove it never happened. But Justin will most likely be questioned by police.
“Anytime the police say you need to come in for questioning they usually arrest you when you come in and then you get bailed out,” Raoul says. “They want to hear your side of the story. But very frequently, they arrest you right on the spot.”
But now that Justin is in Oslo, Noway, does this mean he’ll get in trouble for fleeing the country?
“It’s not a murder case where everyone stops the clock,” Raoul says. “He’ll show up with his lawyer when he’s back and they might arrest him. But it’s a misdemeanor, it’s not a felony. He is working with his legal team, publicist, personal manager and writing a lot of checks out right now.”
But Raoul says that if Justin is charged, he’ll have this on his record forever!
“He’ll most likely go before the judge and plead guilty because he doesn’t want a jury trial like a Lindsay Lohan situtation,” he says. “He’ll apologize and say he’s sorry and didn’t mean to hurt anyone. The judge will probably give him 30 days community service.”
HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Justin’s rep for comment but has yet to hear back.
