Amanda Bynes Gets 3-Year Probation For Driving On Suspended License

BURBANK ( —  Actress Amanda Bynes was given three years probation Thursday for driving on a suspended license.

Bynes, 27,  was also ordered to pay $1,500 in fines and penalties.

She plead no contest to the suspended license charge. She still faces a DUI count after allegedly colliding with a sheriff’s deputy in West Hollywood in April 2012.

Bynes was not required to be in the courtroom. Her attorney, Richard Hutton, entered the no contest plea on her behalf.

Bynes, perhaps best known for her work on Nickelodeon series and for movies like “What A Girl Wants” and “Hairspray,” was also warned not to drive without a valid license and insurance.

The suspended license charges were the result of two different crashes last year, according to the City Attorney’s Office. One of the two misdemeanor counts was dropped Thursday.

A pretrial hearing date of May 29 is set for Bynes in Beverly Hills Superior Court on the misdemeanor count of DUI.
