The judge, who reviewed Bynes' medical records, determined that the former Nickelodeon star is mentally competent to undergo criminal proceedings over her DUI case, according to the report. Bynes, 27, was originally scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 24 regarding her April 2012 DUI arrest that in West Hollywood, but the She's The Man star was a no-show.
A spokesperson from the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office told Us Weekly in September, "Her attorney declared a 1368 [Penal Code] hearing to declare a doubt to mental competency. The parties will be due back in court on January 14, 2014 for a progress report."
Bynes was placed in a 5150 psychiatric hold back in July after she set a fire on the driveway of a stranger in her hometown of Thousand Oaks, Calif. The hold was later extended after her mother, Lynn Bynes, assumed conservatorship over her troubled daughter. The actress has been undergoing treatment in a private facility in Los Angeles since September.
Following many months of erratic behavior, the former child star was arrested in NYC for marijuana possession, reckless endangerment and tampering with evidence after she heaved a bong out the window of her high-rise Manhattan apartment building.
TMZ reported in early November that the star is expected to complete treatment at rehab and return home in time for Christmas.
