Amanda Bynes

Pleads Not Guilty

to Hit-and-Run

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes just pled not guilty to two counts of hit-and-run, TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Amanda was charged with both counts of hit-and-run earlier this month after two separate incidents -- one in April, another in August -- when she allegedly smashed into other cars and fled the scene.

Prosecutors initially declined to charge Bynes for the first hit-and-run incident -- but after the actress was accused of the second hit-and-run, they reopened case #1.

The L.A. City Attorney subsequently filed charges against Bynes stemming from BOTH incidents.

If convicted on both counts, she faces up to a year in jail. She's due back in court October 19th.

FYI -- Bynes is also still facing one DUI charge and TWO charges of driving on a suspended license.

Bynes was not in court for the hearing -- she's in NYC, where she's been shopping her face off for the past couple days ... and showing off a TON of leg.

She ain't gonna be spending any time behind bars gee whiz.....she'll get an ankle bracelet and house arrest in her pad on the beach in Malibu to enjoy margarita and beer parties and sex orgy parties with her buddies on the rooftop deck....now, if it was common folk like you and I, we'd be spending the next 52 weekends checking into Hawthorne Jail and cleaning out the puke and blood from the back seat of cop cars and eating bologna sandwiches and orange slices for lunch....just sayin' folks...WAKE UP, AMERICA...TIME TO REVOLT AGAINST DOUBLE STANDARDS!!!!!!
