TORONTO (AP) - Justin Bieber's attorney says he expects the singer's Canadian assault case to be treated as a low-level offense and says his client is innocent.

Bieber's California-based attorney Howard Weitzman released the statement Wednesday after the pop singer turned himself in to Toronto police.

Weitzman declined to comment on the allegations his client faces or any potential defense, saying it was now a matter for the court to handle.

The attorney says in a statement that Bieber's legal team expects the case to be treated as a summary offense, which is the equivalent of a misdemeanor in the United States.

Toronto police had been investigating Bieber and his entourage over the assault of a limo driver in late December.

As bad as he is Obama's uncle recently caught drunk driving and in the USA on 9 year expired visas was given a free pass to our country permanently by same judge SUPRISE as one that gave his aunt a free permanent visa. The judge cited good behavior on part of Obama's uncle. Bieber has money if you expect any different outcomes in case you are wrong. He will pay fine or get off some way or another because he can afford to pay for the fines, bail and best lawyers money can buy. Justice is bought in court now days.
