The plea, entered through her attorney, was to a lesser alcohol-related offense that does not carry the same consequences as a DUI, which means Bynes will avoid jail time.

Instead, Bynes will be put on probation for three years and have to pay various fines. She will also have to attend a three-month alcohol education course.

Bynes completed inpatient rehab in December.
