Amanda Bynes sentenced to 3 years probation for suspended license case
Amanda Bynes recently pleaded no contest to driving with a suspended license and was put on probation, which brings to a conclusion a case that marked one of several traffic-related incidents that put the former Nickelodeon star in the headlines in 2012.
Bynes, 27, had lost her driving privileges in the Los Angeles area in September of that year after two misdemeanor hit-and-run cases, which she later settled, and a separate DUI arrest, which is still pending.
She was pulled over in the nearby city of Burbank later that month for driving with a suspended license but was not detained. The actress' attorney had on Thursday entered a no contest plea on her behalf to driving with a suspended license, the Los Angeles Times reported, adding that she was put on probation for three years and fined $300.
Bynes, who moved to New York several months ago, has not commented. She had initially pleaded not guilty to the charges and also maintains her innocence in the DUI case.
The actress, who starred the Nickelodeon shows "All That!" and "The Amanda Show" as well as movies such as "Hairspray," "Easy A" and "What A Girl Wants," has not acted in years and has in recent months become a Twitter celebrity. Her frequent "selfie" photos, including several showing her debuting new hairstyles and skimpy outfits, have helped her garner more than 1 million followers.
