Justin Bieber appears in front of judge in Miami on January 23, 2014
Justin Bieber is seeking a delay in his trial currently scheduled to begin next month on Florida charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license.
Justin’s lawyers Roy Black filed a motion Monday saying they need more time to prepare their case. Justin’s trial is set for May 5th in Miami.
The motion says prosecutors do not oppose a delay.
Justin’s attorney initially asked for a 60-day delay from the previous May 5 trial date, but Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield extended the postponement even further to July 7.
“I want to give everyone plenty of time,” Judge Altfield said at a brief hearing Wednesday April 23.
Justin Bieber was not present at the brief hearing, as he’s currently in Japan.
