Melrose Place Actress Convicted Of Vehicular Homicide, Gets Five To 10 Years In Prison

amy locane convicted vehicular homicide assault melrose place five ten years prison

Every detail of this situation continues to remain absolutely tragic!

Former Melrose Place star Amy Locane-Bovenizer was convicted this week of vehicular manslaughter and assault with an auto after killing a 60 year-old NJ woman and severely injuring her husband while driving drunk.

The actress was sentenced to five to 10 yeas in prison for the first charge and three-to-five for the second; it's expected she'll be allowed to serve her sentences concurrently.

Amy's blood alcohol level was at three times the legal limit when she fatally injured Helene Seeman in Montgomery Township, NJ back in 2010.

The prosecution wasn't exactly popping champagne bottles after their courtroom victory.

One assistant prosecutor offered:

“This is a sad day for the Seeman family. There were no winners declared by the verdict. There are only losers. A husband lost his dear wife; his two children lost their mother; and Helene’s mother lost her daughter. That loss can never be rectified by a verdict.”

We only hope this tragic affair serves as a cautionary tale to those tempted by drunk driving.

Don't do it. EVER.

You could kill someone and spend a long time behind bars.

    Lock her up and throw away the keys. Drinking and driving is not an accident, it's a choice. IF those were my parents.. i would want to put her away for good. No remorse for people that still drink and drive.

    Re: yylike – Her husband owns a liquor store and they both drink a lot. Rich wannabe Princeton Farms/Hopewell family who think their shit doesnt stink. Husband is a dick wannabee volunteer fireman. She claims she was being stalked by a driver who was only trying to get her off the road after hitting other cars and shit on the road. She even pulled over at one point only to leave again and then finally kill that poor woman…she was shitfaced. 5 years is nothing but I can guarantee that the civil lawsuit will be huge…they will lose everything. Friend of mine from that area said the Bovenizer family has a ton of money. Its about time the self entitled get it handed to them.

    How sad for everyone. What's worse is that most of us have driven after a few or too many drinks. It happens every day and and its sad.

    Re: Douche Hunter – I worked with her husband on a few projects and he's actually a really good guy. I feel terrible for everyone involved, including Locane's kids who are both under 6.
