Amanda Bynes Pleads 'Not Guilty'
Amanda Bynes pleaded not guilty on Thursday to two hit-and-run charges in the Van Nuys Superior Court. Bynes was not present herself in court, so her attorney Richard A. Hutton made the plea on her behalf.
The 26-year-old Nickelodeon princess best known for "What a Girl Wants" and "She's the Man," is being charged for two separate hit-and-run accounts.
The first incident happened on April 10, which resulted in Bynes pleading not guilty to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence. She was arrested on April 6 in West Hollywood for the crash and and for allegedly refusing a peace officer's request to submit a chemical test. Bynes is due back in court on Oct. 29th for that case.
The second incident took place on Aug. 4, which forced police to re-open the first crash. Bynes is due back in court for a pre-trial hearing on Oct. 19. If convicted on both counts, Bynes could face up to a year in jail.
Bynes was also charged last week in Burbank with two misdemeanor counts of driving with a license suspended due to her DUI and pair of hit-and-run cases. She is set to be arraigned on those charges on Oct. 16.
