Amanda Bynes

Could Go to 2015

Here's how bad off Amanda Bynes is ... it looks like she could be in a mental health facility for a year and a half.

Amanda's lawyer was in a NYC court today ... in connection with the case where Amanda allegedly threw a bong out the window of her apartment. 

Her lawyer, Gerald Shargel, asked for a postponement for up to 18 months while she got psychiatric treatment. 

Sources tell TMZ ... the likelihood is ... the case will be plea bargained ... there are major weaknesses in the prosecution's case.  Translation -- the case could possibly be dropped altogether.

Hopefully they drop it since she is seeking treatment for mental illness. I really don't believe she's just another Lilo, ungrateful and ignorant, I really think she has very serious, very dangerous mental issues.

For now this is such a blessing. She probably would have really hurt herself if she had not gotten that close. I hope they can help her. SO sad.

hmmm, a patient with funds. A psychiatric facility would benefit quite nicely for an exxxxxxteeeeendeeed stay. The facility's opinions will, in all likelihood, lean towards keeping her as long as permissible by law. Indefinitely... tsk tsk

Such a sad situation. I grew up watching The Amanda Show and All That, and her downward spiral is really sad to me. I'm glad she's getting help, though. She's better off in the hospital than wandering around NYC by herself.

At $3,500 a day sag will only pay a minimal amount. I will say again dont smoke that fake pot.i know people that have gone crazy on it.

Good riddance!    

It's probably a very good thing that will end up saving her life.

That and her fingertips can heal and grow back after having her phone surgically removed from them.

I'm sure the girl is sick but I highly doubt she's that sick! I'm guessing the docs and hospital are quite happy that their $3000 a day fee will be well taken care of. No doubt when the funds/insurance run low, she'll be better
