Amanda Bynes was officially charged with two counts of knowingly driving with a suspended license today. Why two? Because she was pulled over by Burbank, California police officers near the Bob Hope Airport last Sunday morning for not having her paperwork in order, and then, shockingly, she was pulled over just an hour and a half later in the same area, obviously still without a license.
According to E! Online, Bynes’ car was impounded after the second offense, and she’s recently been spotted taking cabs. By the 16th of October, she’ll need to take one more to the Burbank courthouse to answer the charges pending against her or else her legal situation will get even more perilous.
If convicted on both new charges, Bynes could spend up to a year in jail. Considering there’s also a DUI and two hit-and-run charges pending against her too, the ultimate sentence could be even worse, at least if she doesn’t consider bundling it all together and taking a plea bargain as soon as possible. Unfortunately, since she’s still reportedly telling friends and family members she hasn’t done anything wrong, it seems unlikely she will consider a public acknowledgement of wrongdoing in front of the court.
We’ll keep you updated as Bynes begins making her court appearances over the next few months. Until then, here’s to hoping she doesn’t get behind the wheel again.
