Amy Locane-BovenizerSOMERVILLE, N.J. – Amy Locane-Bovenizer, a former actress on Melrose Place, has been sentenced to three years in prison after driving drunk and plowing her SUV into another car, killing a woman.

For those who don’t know who hell this lady is, she played a character on Melrose Place, one of the worst shows to come out of the ’90s aside from Home Improvement. I have no clue what she did after the show was finally cancelled, but in 2010 she made headlines after getting behind the wheel of an SUV with a blood alcohol level that was three times past the legal limit.

After rear-ending Maureen Ruckelshaus, Locane-Bovenizer refused to get out of her car and fled the scene. Ruckelshaus followed Locane-Bovenizer for four mile, watching as the 40-year-old took out a few mailboxes. When a car moved out from in front of Locane-Bovenizer, she accelerated to 50 mph and plowed into the passenger side of a car turning into a driveway.

The driver of that car, Fred Seeman, was seriously injured but survived. His wife, 60-year-old Helene Seeman, was his passenger and took the brunt of the impact. She was not so lucky and would be pronounced dead at the scene. As for Locane-Bovenizer, she was seriously injured and only suffered a scratch on her foot.

Witnesses testified that while Mr Seeman was watching his wife die, Locane-Bovenizer was giggling in a nearby drainage ditch. One officer testified that after they had taken a blood sample from the actress, she said, “Am I pregnant or am I just drunk?” Hours later, Locane-Bovenizer would urinate in her hospital bed and ramble incoherently — seemingly unaware of what she had done.

In 2012, a jury didn’t feel there was enough evidence to convict Locane-Bovenizer on manslaughter charges, but they did find her guilty of the lesser charge of vehicular manslaughter and assault by automobile. She was looking at possible 10 year prison sentence.

But yesterday a judge cited the hardship on Locane-Bovenizer’s two children, one of whom has a medical disability and the other a mental disability, when he lowered the maximum sentence to just three years. Locane-Bovenizer broke down in tears as the sentence was read, while Seeman’s husband yelled, “What a travesty!” at the judge before he and his son stormed out of the courtroom.
