All of Amanda Bynes' legal issues are resolved now that the former Nickelodeon star has struck a plea deal to settle her 2012 DUI case.

Bynes, 27, entered a no-contest plea Monday in exchange for the lesser charge of reckless driving. As a result, she must serve three years on probation, complete an alcohol education course, and pay a fine, CNN reported.

The troubled actress was arrested in April 2012 on suspicion of DUI after allegedly sideswiping a sheriff's cruiser at 3 a.m. in Los Angeles. A judge then transferred her case to the mental health division after she was placed on a 5150 hold in July after setting a small fire in the driveway of a Los Angeles-area home near her parents' house.

Bynes was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and eventually moved to a fancy Malibu rehab center in September. The actress was released in December and has reportedly been staying at her parents' California home, attending outpatient treatment, and taking classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

"Everything is fine," her attorney Bob Wilson told People magazine last week. "She's doing great."

A separate criminal case involving allegations that Bynes tossed a bong out of her New York City apartment window in May was dropped last month.
