Judge to Amanda Bynes

Mess Up Again ...

I'll Make You Pay

9/19/2012 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0918_amanda-bynes_01The judge in Amanda Bynes' DUI case has had enough of her driving shenanigans -- proclaiming if she breaks the law on the road again ... it'll cost her big time.

Amanda's lawyer showed up in to an L.A. courtroom today to fight the D.A.'s request to impose $50,000 bail on the actress for her April DUI arrest.  Right now, she's out on her own recognizance -- no bail.

The D.A. argued Amanda has proven time and again she's a danger on the road -- with two hit-and-run charges hanging over her head -- and wanted the judge to impose bail to deter her from further endangering people.

But... the judge said Amanda's alleged hit-and-run violations occurred BEFORE her license was suspended on August 25th, so he decided to give her a break ... for now ... rejecting the D.A.'s bail request.

But the judge was crystal clear ... if Amanda breaks ANY road rules from this day forward, he will impose a high enough bail to get her attention.  Obviously, for now, she better not drive at all because her license is suspended.

The judge didn't specify an amount -- but Amanda's got money ... so you can bet it will be high.

The judge also reminded Amanda's lawyer -- she better not even think about getting behind the wheel until her license is reinstated.

LA celebrity justice. Anyone else would be in jail. Just the picture smoking weed should be enough.

Judge Fox is reasonable.
She has Judge Fox for the hit and runs and Judge Revel for the DUI.

Celebrities don't get off easier than the rest of us here in California, that's a myth.
General public only sees the celebrity court cases as they're covered in the news and magazines...public doesn't see the other thousands of non-celebrity cases throughout the year.
Gives people the impression that celebrities are running around getting special breaks, when court records prove they don't.
Non-celebrity people get the same treatment as celebrities all the time.
DAs are often corrupt and base the cases they take on how many public votes it will get them on next election.
Judges get tired of DAs looking for reputations by dragging people through the courts.
DA may have been just another DA looking for votes and mega media attention...Judge saw through the bullsh-t ;)

All the judges threaten but they never mean it, here we go again another judge letting another celebrity getting away with it, Did he not hear she was driving even when her liscence was suspended. When are judges going to get tough on celebrities,

You better straighten up or risk the possibility of spending 1 or 2 hours in jail.

She should have BEEN locked up. I mean any person regardless of age, race or relelevance should be especially if our kids look up to them should be taught a lesson when doing wrong!!! What kind of example is a nickelodeon star setting for our kids. It's a shame. Then wonder why there's so much negativity in the world bc **** like this happens. That's why I'm so involved in my child's life. I don't blame Amanda nor lindsay I blame their parents bc had the parents knuckled them down and told them right and wrong as kids they wouldn't be acting like fools today. They are too busy trying to gain recognition for themselves instead of talking to the child and getting their children the help they so rightfully need. How can u blame Amanda or Lindsay when neither had a childhood? They worked as children just like Michael Jackson and look how he turned out!!! It's a shame what money can do to people that's why I work hard daily and take care of my daughter tell her what's right and wrong tell her ANYTHING is possible with GOD!!! Money is the root of all evil.

She already drove after her license was suspended. That is why her car was impounded. If Amanda kills someone while driving a car, it's on the judge.
