Amanda Bynes

City Atty PISSED After Actress

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.

She's always been a little hottie. I thought maybe a judge sitting there bug eyed, looking at all of that leg gave her break, because of the title to the story. Heck, she wasn't even there.

This chick is interchangeable with half of the blonde pole smoking air heads in Hollyweird. Are you REALLY suprised she got off? Do you REALLY think Looser Lohan is going to do any time? Don't forget to write a letter to Santa and the Easter Bunny too.

I'm so tired of hearing about the rich and famous being able to buy their innocence and freedom from the real consequences of their actions...and courts of law allowing it. There are countries where it wouldn't be allowed.

So now if she or worse an innocent person or people god forbid DIE or are disabled for life due to her future lack of judgement and responsibility the blood and guilt should sit partly with both Amanada's lawyer and the judge who let her off. She's needs help yes, BUT compassion does not preclude accountability. And, dear Amanda (and Lindsay, etc) KARMA's a bitch! Good luck.

I don't think she's another Lindsay Lohan, who not only had DUIs but kidnapped 3 people in a carjacking and terrified a woman by racing after her through the streets while drunk and coked up and since then has been caught stealing and has attacked people, actively smeared her victims, and has violated probation multiple times. Amanda really isn't anywhere close to the same league as Lindsay, who is an all round Mean Girl. People actually still like Amanda, another huge difference... Also Amanda always worked hard and displayed much more talent than lazy Lindsay. But Amanda's general behavior is disturbing and suggests she has a mental illness that emerges around her age. She may be self-medicating with drugs and alcohol to some extent, but it seems to be much more than that. She definitely was not like this as a kid or teenager. She should not be driving, but maybe there's not much else they can do at the moment. I was hoping they could order mandatory psychiatric evaluation, but apparently not with these charges.

It should surprise anyone , California legal system is a joke when it come to celebrities. O j Simpson got off, so really petty crimes like hit and runs are a breeze. There are photos of this b?!$& hitting a pipe in her car. Can the judge go to jail when she kills someone

I guess Money does pay if you are rich! Justice System in LA is a joke! I wish City Atty had more pwer in those 2 cases. Amanda is going kill someone or herself next time. Justice in California needs to be same for everybody including the rich!
