A Cobb County judge has found probable cause for the charges against Justin on July 3, according to CNN. He was denied bail and will ultimately face a grand jury in Georgia. Justin has pleaded not guilty on all of the charges.
This comes after Detective Phil Stoddard, an investigator for the state of Georgia, revealed during the hearing that Justin was sexting with multiple women while his son was dying inside of his vehicle due to hyperthermia from the heat.
