"This is an important step in her rehabilitation," Bynes' lawyer, Gerald Shargel, said. "I am optimistic about her future and pleased with the result."

Bynes was taken into custody last May after police were called to her apartment building and allegedly saw the actress dispose of a bong out her window. She was charged with Reckless Endangerment in the Second Degree, Attempted Tampering with Physical Evidence and Unlawful Possession Of Marijuana.

Bynes was released from a Malibu rehabilitation facility on December 5, 2013, after about five months of treatment. She was forcibly hospitalized back in July after she started a fire in a driveway.
