Justin Bieber has been given a glowing report by his probation officer in his egging-related vandalism case.
The singer has completed all 12 of his court-ordered anger management classes and has logged in two hours of community service at Volunteers of America. Bieber worked at an emergency shelter in South Los Angeles, helping with repair work.
According to court documents made public on Monday, Bieber’s lawyer appeared in Los Angeles County Superior Court the same day on behalf of the 21-year-old star to hear the probation progress report.
In the report, Bieber’s probation officer wrote, “His overall performance on probation has been good and he continues to display a cooperative attitude,” Associated Press notes.
The assessment continued, “More importantly, the defendant appears to be sincere in his efforts to successfully complete this grant of probation.”
Bieber’s anger management completion was a significant term in the plea deal his lawyers reached with prosecutors, after he was charged with one count of misdemeanor vandalism for egging his former neighbor’s house in Calabasas, California, last January.
The “Where Are U Now” singer was sentenced to five days of community labor, the anger management program, and ordered to pay $80,900 restitution and stay away from former neighbor Jeffrey Schwartz and his family for two years. To that end, Bieber moved away.
TMZ reports Bieber’s lawyers revealed the singer will complete his five days of community service at the Volunteers of America shelter.
In March, the Schwartzes sued Bieber for emotional distress, alleging the singer is guilty of reckless racing, loud parties, and other allegations which have yet to be proved.
Bieber spent the first three months of 2015 apologizing for his past missteps, in the run up to his Comedy Central Roast in March. During that public skewering, Bieber owned up to past bad behavior and promised he had drawn a line under his dramas.
And for the most part, that is what’s followed. The probation officer’s formal commendation of Bieber’s conduct seems to indicate the singer’s vow to turn over a new leaf is genuine.
Meanwhile, Bieber returned to the big stage over the weekend, performing at the Wango Tango festival in Carson, California, which he headlined with Kanye West. The singer also revealed in pre-concert interviews that his new album is in the “final touch stage” and he is set to tour in the summer.
Bieber’s probation ends in 2016. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Anita Dymant booked another progress update in the case for August 3, the AP reports.
