Amanda Bynes has had a rough go of it this past year, for sure. Between her various police run-ins, mental illness diagnosis and a rehab stint, it’s fair to say the girl deserves a bit of a break as she attempts to recover at her parents’ house in California.
With that in mind, some good news has come Amanda’s way: she’ll avoid jail time in her DUI case after accepting a plea deal in which she pleaded no contest to a lesser alcohol-related offense.
She won’t get off entirely scott-free, however: she’s on probation for three years and will have to attend an alcohol education class. She’ll also pay a few fines, but hey, at least she’ll be able to continue her recovery at home! We’re rooting for you, girl.
