Amanda Bynes

She's Mentally Unfit

To Stand Trial

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes is mentally unfit to stand trial ... this according to her lawyer in her DUI case ... TMZ has learned.

Amanda was supposed to appear in court today for her DUI arrest in West Hollywood back in April, 2012. Amanda's lawyer, Rich Hutton, told the judge Amanda did not have the mental capacity to understand the nature of the legal proceedings.

The judge apparently had concern ... and transferred the matter to the mental health court.  The judge in that court will conduct a hearing to determine Amanda's mental competency.

Meanwhile, Amanda is getting long-term treatment after being placed under a conservatorship.

Here's video ... of a noticeably unstable Amanda climbing into her Range Rover last year.

Wait a minute...

Is this the same Lawyer who was trying to convince the judge that she was mentally healthy enough not to have to withstand a hold longer that her 72 hour 5150?

They are all crazy!

Its not really the people - even though they are hilarious and pathetic - its the industry and Hollywood in general that does this to them... sure, Disney, go ahead and tell these young kids 'how great' they are, even though ther're just k I d s... then see what happens later... All you people that idolize and support these ridiculous 'stars' are part of the problem as well... if it all could just go away completely, take all this $$$Hollywood 'stars'$$$ industry and end it permanently, the world would be a better place for children as they grow into adults
