Amanda Bynes to Stay on Psychiatric Treatment Until 2015


Being unfit to stand trial, her lawyer is working on a settlement of her bong reckless endangerment case.

Distressed actress Amanda Bynes won't be appearing in court anytime soon, according to her lawyer Gerald Shargel. The 27-year-old troubled celebrity is currently on psychiatric treatment at the UCLA Medical Center in California and would most likely be kept there until 2015.

Appearing in a New York court to settle his client's case for a bong-throwing incident earlier this year, Shargel told the judge that Bynes was not fit to stand trial for the reckless endangerment and marijuana possession charges filed against her for the next 18 months. He is working on the charges to be dropped altogether on the condition that the former Nickelodeon star commits to staying out of trouble.

Bynes threw a bong out of the window after cops entered her Manhattan apartment, responding to a call by building managers who reported that the "Easy A" star was smoking pot. It was only one of a string of incidents over a period of several months where the TV and film actress exhibited her worsening erratic behavior for which she was eventually put under long-term psychiatric care and legal conservatorship.

Recently, Bynes' mom Lynn had already withdrawn her petition for permanent conservatorship since her daughter was already under involuntary psychiatric hold and conservatorship of her doctors. Nonetheless, she still retains the power to make medical and financial decisions on behalf of her daughter.
