Another low for Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes and her attorney seen during an earlier court appearance.

Amanda Bynes ongoing sad saga took another downward turn Wednesday as her attorney told a California judge his client was “mentally unfit” to stand trial.

The actress was scheduled to appear in person in the Los Angeles courtroom in connection with her DUI arrest in West Hollywood in April, 2012.

First reported by TMZ, Bynes’ lawyer Rich Hutton told the judge she did not have the mental capacity to fully understand the nature of the proceedings.

The judge transferred the case to the mental health court, where another judge will hold hearings to determine Bynes’ mental competency.

Currently the troubled star, who had hoped to launch a new career as a fashion designer, is undergoing psychological treatment and has been paced under a conservatorship.
