Amanda Bynes is mentally capable of understanding the nature of the criminal charges she faces, and as a result, the road is now clear for her to stand trial for DUI. Bynes' case was in Mental Heath Court this morning, and the judge read the court-ordered medical evaluation of the actress, and determined she is now competent to face the DUI charges. Bynes' lawyer, Rich Hutton , did not object to the findings so the criminal case -- which was put on hold -- will now go forward. Sources say the ruling will have NO impact on her conservatorship.
