Could Justin Bieber be deported if charged, convicted of pelting eggs?
Global News ^ | JANUARY 17, 2014 | John R. Kennedy

TORONTO — Media outlets are reporting Canadian pop star Justin Bieber could be deported from the U.S. if convicted of felony vandalism in connection with an alleged egg attack on a neighbour’s house — but are they getting the facts scrambled?

“Bieber could be sent packing to Canada if convicted of felony after vicious egg attack on neighbour’s house,” declared the UK’s Daily Mail.

“Justin Bieber’s Egg-Throwing Police Probe Dilemma: Possible Felony Conviction Could See Pop Star Deported Back to Canada!,” screamed RadarOnline.

“Justin Bieber bust could mean jail time, deportation if convicted,” Fox News reported.

Not so fast.

First, the 19-year-old Ontario-born singer hasn’t been charged in connection with the alleged egg attack that caused a reported $20,000 in damage.

Although police egg-secuted a search warrant on Bieber’s Calabasas mansion on Tuesday, L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Lt. David Thompson said the pop star was “not arrested nor exonerated.”

Secondly, while it’s true the penalty for felony vandalism — defined in California as vandalism causing more than $400 damage — is up to three years in prison, it is not likely cops will be carton him off to jail.

It is more likely Bieber, as a first-time offender, would simply be ordered to pay restitution and put on probation. In other words, a judge would omelette him go.

So what if, worst-case scenario, Bieber is charged, convicted and sentenced to time behind bars?

“It turns out he could be forced back to his chilly homeland,” Fox News reported. (Whoa! It’s not always chilly in Canada.)

It’s true that Bieber — who’s in the U.S. on a work visa — could be deported if convicted of a crime “of moral turpitude” within five years of admission to the U.S. if the government finds the crime involved “an element of intentional or reckless infliction of harm to persons or property.”

Deportations are a civil matter, though, and Bieber would be able to fight it. The government is unlikely to bother trying to send a world-famous pop star packing.

Besides, a Bieber deportation would evidently divide a nation:

Could we also get rid of KO, Chris Matthews, and a whole host of other lefties at the same time?

Send them to East Elbonia?

Using the standard held for Mexicans here illegally, Justine could come back even if he was charged/convicted of drunk driving, being a sexual predator, making a terrorist threat, etc.

He has a history of acting out in the neighborhood he lives in and he threw eggs on a wall where there was a Venetian plaster covering, that is what makes it felony damage. He also cussed out the owner, in front of the young daughter of the owner of the house as well.

No don’t deport him, judge. Just make him clean up the mess himself. Give him a bucket, soap, a brush and a ladder and tell him clean it up yourself jerk. Don’t let him call in his crew and let the media photograph every minute of it.

It's quite possible the egging was justified. Maybe the neighbor was playing Justin Bieber albums. Just sayin'.

His antics always struck me as staged, designed for publicity, which is okay by me. So is this one real or is it Memorex? A little more elaborate than the others, granted, but still might’ve been agreed to by all parties. If not, deport him. Law’s clear. Just apply it equally to all scofflaw foreigners who are here peeing on our lettuce, etc.

All that you say is true, but I still think a firing squad is rather excessive.

Not sticking up for the little brat Biebster, but the dad is pretty good at cuss words himself.

I don’t blush easily, but the number of times the dad shouted M’Fer in front of his daughter was just sad.

All involved may have a lot of money, but no class.

Good point; I think a stay in 23/7 isolation and then forcible deportation would in fact be a lot better.

If I worked as hard as the father did, then saw someone egging a plaster finish worth tens of thousands and then saw that my kid was getting targeted, I would be turning the face of a Marine red with embarrassment.

Yes a teen pop star who is in the country legally will get deported because he threw eggs but not 9 gabillion foreign invaders from Mexico who could be anything from serial killers to rapists...They get amnesty.

Thank you.

I just imagine the frustration of the father and it is a form of assault. His kid was in that house and with the entourage that surrounds Justin, it could be a danger that a member of the entourage could pull something against the kid.

He is way out of control. He’s notorious in his neighborhood for causing trouble and I sincerely hope he gets jail time. It won’t enhance his persona and his career is already on the downswing.

on his way back here accidentally fly to far and drop him in Columbia.

Why is it I have never heard him sing? I love music and listen to it all the time. If you are listening to him enough to annoy you the problem is not Bieber.

I think "carton" (instead of "carting") was one of several puns in the article.

Jay Leno always needs a Canadian to make fun of in his monologue. A while back it was the mayor of Toronto. Now it's Justin Bieber. Of course Leno only has a few weeks left before his job ends.

I don’t follow anything about Justin Bieber if I can help it. I seem to recall he was blasting the US health care system and saying how wonderful Canada’s system. YET, the extrememly wealthy boy chooses to live in this horrible oppressive country where any and all people who need medical care die and their corpses are stacked like cordwood on every street corner.
