michael wildes comments on justin bieber and his o visa on cbs news


Wildes & Weinberg P.C. Managing Partner comments on Justin Bieber’s actions relating to accusations of egg-throwing, drag racing, possession of marijuana, assault, and under-age drinking.
Just a few miles from MetLife Stadium, home to Super Bowl 2014, Justin Bieber spent several hours on the tarmac at Teterboro Airport after it was reported that perhaps the Canadian pop musician, actor, and singer-songwriter brought more then just his band with him when he entered the United States.  When Bieber’s private jet landed in the airport last week, it was alleged that the aircraft contained marijuana.  After several hours, and a search that turned up empty handed, Bieber was allowed to enter the U.S. on his temporary work visa. 
Bieber is one of many foreign nationals who come enter the United States on a temporary work visa each year. As a teen heart throb and icon in the music industry, Bieber applied for and was granted an O-1 visa.  The O-1 visa is awarded to an individual who possesses extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements.  
Despite the fact that he is a talented entertainer, Bieber’s can be ordered deportable if he is convicted of crimes involving moral turpitude. This young superstar’s current trajectory is one that may cause him to end up disappointing millions of fans.  Michael Wildes told CBS news that at this time,  “Bieber should limit his travel and lay low”.
