Judge Elden Fox Says Amanda Bynes Didn't Violate Law by Driving on a Suspended License

Amanda Bynes had a little good news in court today, when a judge ruled that the actress is not a threat to society.

The troubled actress, who just had her car impounded after she was caught driving on a suspended license, had a court hearing today where Judge Elden Fox even didn’t require bail.

The district attorney felt Amanda should have to put up $50,000 bail as a condition of remaining free until her October 29 trial, but the judge decided against the request, stating, “Technically, Ms. Bynes is not in violation of order not to drive without a valid driver’s license.”

The district attorney argued that the bail was needed “for the risk of public safety,” but the judge stated that both incidents occurred prior to Amanda’s license being suspended. But, the judge said he won’t be as easy on her if she has another incident before her court date.

On June 5, Amanda was officially charged with driving under the influence due to an arrest in April in which she allegedly ran into a police cruiser with her BMW. She also refused to submit to a breathalyzer test at the time of her arrest and the following day, her attorney entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.

On September 5, Amanda Bynes was charged with two counts of misdemeanor hit and run for accidents that occurred April 1 and Aug. 4.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of six months behind bars and/or a $1,000 fine for each count and the sentence can run consecutively.

Insiders report that Bynes’ parents were moving from their home in Texas to be near their daughter while she’s going through a rough time.

Amanda’s parents are going to sell their Cedar Park, Texas, home to be with their troubled daughter.
