While the district attorney argued Amanda should be ordered to put up $50,000 bail as a condition of remaining free pending her October 29 trial, the judge chose not to impose the requested bail, stating: "Technically, Ms. Bynes is not in violation of order not to drive without a valid driver's license."
And while the district attorney said bail was needed "for the risk of public safety," the judge cited the fact that both incidents occurred prior to Amanda's license being suspended. He noted that he would not be as amenable if Amanda received another incident prior to her trial date.
On June 5, Amanda was officially charged with driving under the influence due to an arrest in April in which she allegedly ran into a police cruiser with her BMW. She also refused to submit to a chemical test at the time of her arrest and the following day, her attorney entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.
On September 5, the former child star was charged with two counts of misdemeanor hit and run for accidents that occurred April 1 and Aug. 4.
The charges carry a maximum sentence of six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine for each count and the sentence can run consecutively.
