Amanda Bynes Settlement Made In Hit And Run Charges

Good news for Amanda Bynes as the actress has managed to escape prosecution over two criminal cases involving two separate counts of alleged hit-and-runs after she paid civil settlements to the drivers.

The two  hit-and-run incidents, which occurred in April and in August, were dismissed by the ruling Los Angeles County Superior Court judge this week, after her attorney reached deals with the drivers she was accused of hitting out of court. The misdemeanour dismissals will no doubt come as a major relief to the former child star, as she was facing a potential six months of jail time for each of teh two charges she was facing.

Once a mainstay on Nickelodeon and in teen films, Bynes has suffered a major fall from grace in recent years, and this latest court decision may very well be the only good news she has received in some time. Still, this dismissal is just the first in a long line of charges being held against the former child star. 

Bynes is still to face a DUI charge from back in April when she allegedly struck an L.A. County sheriff's cruiser with her BMW whilst under the influence (April 6). She was arrested at around 3 a.m. near  Robertson and Santa Monica boulevards in West Hollywood at the time, and will face charges in court at the beginning of next year. Amanda is due to face charges of refusing a sobriety test during the same incident. Police have also revealed that the now retired actress was also involved in a minor traffic incident in May this year. Most recently of all, she was charged with driving on a suspended license earlier this year.
