Melrose Place star gets 3 years for vehicular homicide

Amy Locane-Bovenizer, an actress who was featured for one season in the TV series Melrose Place was sentenced to three years in prison for a drunk driving accident that killed a New Jersey mother and injuring the woman's husband and son.

SOMERVILLE, N.J. – The family of a woman who was killed by a drunken, former star of Melrose Place, was outraged when a New Jersey judge reduced the woman's sentence from 5 to10 to 3 years in prison.

On Thursday, a Somerville, N.J., judge sentenced Amy Locane-Bovenizer to three years in a state correctional facility for women. Locane-Bovenizer, who was featured one season on Melrose Place, was convected of homicide by vehicle and assault by auto for the June 2010 crash which killed the wife of Fred Seeman, and critically injured him and injured his son, as well.

Police said Locane-Bovenizer was driving her SUV at 53 mph in a 35 mph zone. A BAC test determined that her blood alcohol level was almost three times more than the legal limit. According to court records, prior to the accident, the actress had been drinking at a community-theater cast party, and then later, at a family barbecue.

The judge ordered the sentences to run concurrently. Locane-Bovenizer was given credit for 81 days for time served, which will make her eligible for parole in a little more than 30 months. At sentencing, the actress cried as she told the court that she had “never cried tears like these.” She said she was devastated and hurt and is now aware of the pain that accompanies the experience of being separated from a loved one.

Seeman could not contain his anger at hearing the sentence reduction – shouting at the judge: “This isn't justice.” The trial jury had sentenced the actress to five to 10 years, but the judge agreed to a lesser sentence because one of the actress' two daughters suffers from Crohn's disease.
