Amanda Bynes Avoids Jail in DUI Case

Posted on

Things are continuing to look up for Amanda Bynes.

Less than a week after her attorney told PEOPLE that she is “doing great” since completing inpatient treatment in December, Bynes pleaded no contest in her DUI case on Monday, a rep for the L.A. District Attorney’s office tells PEOPLE.

The plea, made through her lawyer, was to a lesser alcohol-related offense that does not have the same consequences as a DUI, sparing her jail time.

The former Nickelodeon star, 27, will be placed on three years probation, pay various fines and must attend a three-month alcohol education course. The DUI dates back to April 2012.
