Amanda Bynes

Skates in Hit-n-Run Cases

Amanda Bynes
is a danger to the public ... and a judge should NOT have let her off the hook in her 2 hit-and-run cases after she paid off the victims ... this according to the L.A. City Attorney.

We broke the story, Bynes was charged with two counts of hit-and-run stemming from two separate incidents over the past year in which she allegedly plowed into cars ... and fled the scene.

But Bynes has since struck a financial settlement with both sets of victims ... and Amanda's attorney went to court this week and convinced the judge to throw out the criminal charges against the actress.

The decision INFURIATED the L.A. City Attorney's Office, which STRONGLY objected based on the fact that there were multiple incidents and that Bynes has a DUI case pending, stemming from an incident in April when Bynes allegedly crashed into a cop car.

As for the DUI case, the District Attorney's Office is still moving forward with that case -- which is scheduled to go in front of the judge next month.

California doesn't need NHL Hockey to resume, there is enough scoring and skating going on with the justice system.

I'm not that surprised. Her lawyers probabaly advised her to make 'restitution' to the victims before court, so there would have no reason to put her on probation. This happens a lot with property damage cases.


Once again, having money means being able to pay off the victims and hire some really good lawyers.
It must be really frustrating for the L.A. City Attorney's Office ...

unfortunately, the more cash you have, the better chance you have of skating from jail time.

WTF! She should have gone to jail for those 2 hit-and-runs. She is driving around when her LICENSE HAS BEEN SUSPENDED and now Amanda is off the hook!? That's it, now I believe that all of L.A. judges are so very incompetent in their decisions that right now it's all about money money money.
