Troubled actress Amanda Bynes is suffering from severe mental illness and is unfit to stand trial, according to the attorney representing her in her DUI case.
The 27-year-old star was supposed to appear in court yesterday in the DUI case, following her arrest in West Hollywood, Calif., back in April 2012.
Amanda's lawyer, Rich Hutton, told the judge that his client "does not have the mental capacity" to even understand the nature of the proceedings.
In other words, she has no idea what she's being charged with, nor can she grasp the consequences. If you assume that's true, it's both amazing and sad.
The judge transferred the matter to the mental health court.
