Amanda Bynes Plea Deal in the Works, May Settle Suspended License Case

by at . Comments

In a rare piece of good news for the actress, a plea deal is being worked out in Amanda Bynes' suspended license case. But not without its share of drama.

After being a no-show for a court hearing this week, Bynes' attorney Richard Hutton was advised that his client will only be granted one more continuance.

Burbank District Attorney Denny Wei explains that part of the hold up today was due to her attorney waiting to receive signed papers from his client.

In order for any plea deal to be accepted, the court must receive signed, notorized forms from the defendant waiving certain legal rights, Wei added.

But the papers in question could be on their way. The retired star was photographed running around New York City with a FedEx envelope Tuesday.

Hopefully she's mailing the court docs and not some weird Twitter pics.

In any case, Judge Margaret Oldendorf granted the continuance in advance of a pretrial and stressed to Hutton that he needed to wrap up the case.

In October, Amanda Bynes was slapped with two misdemeanor counts of driving with a suspended license. She pleaded not guilty to those charges.

The legal process has played out at a glacial pace since.

Her bizarre antics, conversely, have only escalated.
