When a defendant no-shows to court in some places, the judge probably sentences them to a public flogging in the town square!
Amanda Bynes' disappearing act, however, might've had the opposite effect!
Sources close to the situation say the Big Fat Liar actress is now close to striking a deal with the prosecution in her suspended license case!
Apparently everyone involved is merely waiting on her signature and a few notarized forms and then Amanda's courtroom dramz will be ancient history!!
The terms of the deal are unknown, but we doubt she'll do any hard time at Folsom Prison!
We'd also be surprised if the judge returned her license any time this century, LOLz!!
Maybe the famed actress will agree to a special type of community service which has her starring in PSAs to promote safe driving!
