Justin Bieber will reportedly plead guilty to lesser charges in association with his arrest in Florida earlier this year where he was charged with resisting arrest without violence, a DUI and driving with an expired drivers license.

According to the Miami Herald, Bieber will plead guilty to misdemeanor careless driving and resisting arrest without violence charges, rather than the original driving under the influence charge.

The paper reports that Bieber will also agree to take a private 12-hour anger management course and make a $50,000 charitable donation to an unspecified charity. This is in addition to paying court-ordered fines and having to “view online videos that depict the stories of real-life, tragic DUI cases.”

This plea agreement will keep Bieber from serving any jail time.

Bieber is expected to plead guilty this afternoon (Aug. 13), but is not expected to actually appear in court.

Back in July, Bieber was facing a possible felony charge for throwing eggs at a neighbor’s house, but agreed to pay more than $80,000 in damages to avoid jail time.

More recently, Bieber showed he could do something besides get in trouble with the law by FaceTiming with Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teen who became an inspirational figure after the Taliban shot her in the head in 2012 for criticizing the group’s interpretation of Islam and limiting women’s access to education.

He even made a promise to help Malala with her fight to help spread access to education for women, writing, “I can’t wait to meet her in person and talk about how I can support her and the@malalafund. #love.”
