Justin Bieber seeks to delay trial

Justin Bieber is seeking to delay his trial for DUI

Justin Bieber is seeking to delay his trial for driving under the influence (DUI).

The 20-year-old pop singer's trial date is currently set for May 5 in Miami, but his lawyers have filed a motion saying they need more time to prepare their case.

The motion says prosecutors do not oppose a delay and a scheduling hearing has been set for Wednesday April 23.

Justin faces charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license in Florida.

The Baby singer was arrested on January 23 in Miami Beach after what police described as an illegal street drag race. He was not charged with drag racing.

Alcohol breath tests found Justin's level below the 0.02 limit for underage drivers. Urine tests showed the presence of marijuana and an anti-anxiety drug in his system.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
