Amanda Bynes was scheduled to appear in court for her DUI case and according to her lawyer, she’s “mentally unfit to stand trial” as reported by TMZ on September 24. Since Amanda is still being held she was unable to appear in the West Hollywood trial. Rich Hutton, Amanda’s lawyer, told the judge Bynes “did not have the mental capacity to understand the nature of the legal proceedings.”
TMZ reported the judge apparently was concerned and transferred the DUI matters over to the mental health court.
On August 9, Amanda’s mother Lynn was granted conservatorship after she was picked up for setting fire in driveway after trying to visit her parents who were not home at the time. Amanda was picked up and placed on a 5150 hold where it was later revealed the lost starlet had an addiction to shaving.
Amanda is still getting long-term treatment after being place under the conservatorship.
