Amanda Bynes

Actress Amanda Bynes was sentenced to 3 years of probation on Thursday in Burbank, CA. She was also required to pay fines. These penalties are for her charge of driving on a suspended license, stemming from a DUI arrest.

Bynes was arrested for a DUI in April of 2012. On Thursday, her attorney pleaded no contest to driving on a suspended license. (No contest is when you plead neither innocent nor guilty.)

Bynes is due for a pretrial hearing for her DUI charges in Beverly Hills at the end of the month.

A pretrial hearing is when you, and hopefully your attorney, meet with the judge to discuss how your DUI case will proceed. Usually at a pretrial meeting for a DUI, your attorney will request what evidence should or shouldn’t be used against you. It is also when you may negotiate with the judge on a plea agreement to a lesser charge.

Most DUI cases end at a pretrial meeting. However, it all depends on the nature of the drunk driving charge.

If you’ve been arrested for a DUI, hiring an attorney is essential if you want to see your charges reduced or dropped. Let 1 800 DUI Laws help you find an experienced DUI attorney who can aggressively fight your charges. Find a lawyer today.
