Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Amanda Bynes pleaded not guilty Thursday in her hit-and-run case, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The 26-year-old actress faces two hit-and-run charges in connection with accidents that allegedly occurred in April and August.

Bynes’ attorney entered the plea on her behalf. She faces six months in jail on each count if convicted.

Bynes also has a pending DUI case stemming from an arrest in April.

You’d think that Bynes’ personal problems would cause her to lose work, but that’s not necessarily the case. The executive producer of the VH1 morning show Big Morning Buzz Live has invited her to join the cast as a correspondent.

Executive producer Shane Farley tells The Huffington Post, “Amanda Bynes has been a Hollywood insider for over 15 years. Her insight on the entertainment business would prove invaluable to our show.”
