Miami (AP) — Trial was delayed Wednesday until July for pop star Justin Bieber on driving under the influence and other charges after his lawyers asked for more time to examine evidence and discuss whether to accept a possible plea deal. Bieber attorney Roy Black 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," Altfield said at a brief hearing. Bieber was not present. Prosecutors Daniel Diaz-Balart and Juan Perez said they had no objection to a trial delay. The 20-year-old singer was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street drag race between Bieber's rented Lamborghini and a Ferrari driven by R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff. Neither was charged with drag racing, but both were charged with DUI. Bieber »
