UPDATE: Amanda Bynes Pleads Not Guilty

The actress is facing charges in multiple jurisdictions, including West Hollywood.

Actress Amanda Bynes pleaded not guilty Thursday to a pair of misdemeanor hit-and-run charges stemming from two separate crashes.

The 26-year-old Bynes was not present in Van Nuys Superior Court when attorney Richard A. Hutton made the plea on her behalf.

Her next court date in a pre-trial hearing set for Oct. 19.

According to the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, the charges were the result of crashes on April 10 and Aug. 4. She was charged in connection with the crashes on Sept. 5.

Bynes faces charges in multiple jurisdictions.

On June 6, Bynes pleaded not guilty in Beverly Hills Superior Court to a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, stemming from her arrest April 6 in West Hollywood.

The charge includes an allegation that she refused a peace officer's request to submit to a chemical test. She is due back in court Oct. 29 in that case.

The actress was charged last week in Burbank with two misdemeanor counts of driving with a license that was suspended due to the DUI and hit-and-run cases. She is scheduled to be arraigned on those charges Oct. 16.

Bynes is best known for her roles on Nickelodeon's All That and The Amanda Show and films such as Hairspray, What a Girl Wants, Easy A, She's the Man and Sydney White.
