Justin Bieber on track to complete probation requirements in egging case

Justin Bieber is on track to complete his anger management course and community service relating to an egging attack on his former neighbour's home by February (15), according to his lawyer.

The Baby hitmaker was handed the punishment in July (14) as part of a plea deal with prosecutors, six months after he was accused of hurling eggs at the property in a gated neighbourhood in Calabasas, California.


The singer, who pleaded no contest to a count of misdemeanour vandalism, was also ordered to pay the victim $80,000 in restitution.


His lawyer, Shawn Holley, appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court on his behalf on Monday (10Nov14) to give officials an update on his progress, revealing Bieber has already handed over the cheque and has completed four of his 12 anger counselling sessions.


She also told the court the singer is in the process of fulfilling his community labour requirement.


According to TMZ.com, he will paint walls and move furniture at the Los Angeles headquarters of the MusiCares Foundation, which provides help and support for struggling artists, as officials fear his pop superstardom will cause havoc if he is forced to complete typical tasks, such as picking up trash on roadsides, helping with graffiti removal or taking part in beach clean-ups.


Bieber is expected to meet the terms of his probation by the time of his next hearing on 10 February (15).


The 20 year old will remain on probation until 2016.


Bieber moved out of his Calabasas mansion shortly after the egging incident and sold the property to reality TV star Khloe Kardashian in March (14).
