Thanks to the judge's latest ruling, Amanda Bynes' doctors now have the authority to keep the struggling starlet locked away in a mental health facility for up to a whole year!
A WHOLE YEAR!!!
Hopefully 365 days worth of confined treatment won't wind up being necessary!
Sources say the plan is to keep Amanda in the facility for the next 60 days. After that, if her condition has sufficiently stabilized, she could be transferred out of the clinic and into her mother's home.
Of course, should there be any setbacks, it seems as if the judge has granted her caretakers the authority to keep her locked away for a very long time!!
We sincerely hope the treatment is helping! Nothing would make us happier to see Amanda healthy and free!
