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.

Gee people, she's a 'first-time offender' and young. Let's not turn her into a hardened criminal.

So she moved to New York and became a hooker? Certainly dresses like one now. What a shame. I liked her. She seemed like a good kid.

This one is crazy AND a fox!

Just you wait, she's off the rails now and in a supreme bender in cloud 9, but she'll turn her life around and be Hollywood's darling.

Hey yo, Amanda! Been working. Don't trust your lawyer at all! If you're reading this, don't even tell him anything but what happened. You know the drill like in jail!

Tell that judge, you been on TMZ and all the news, and its just really getting to you, and you needed out of the city right THEN (NOW). Hence why you went shoping, it calms you, and it makes you feel good.

Hah, I was just looking back, I found The Amanda Show on DVD, gonna get both discs. I hope thats not too weird, you're just a really good actor, and your show proves it

And Amanda, up here, we got websites that only send in Canada. They're called MoMs, I know 3 of them here, its all mail order. It's all a bit pricey, but it goes to your hotel or what ever, and you get more than what you pay for. Theres also traveler sites out there that tell you where to go in pretty much any city in the world.
