Melrose Place actress Amy Locane was convicted yesterday of vehicular homicide and assault by vehicle. She was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter. Amy will be sentenced on March 1st and faces 5 to 10 years in prison for the homicide charge. She has to serve 85% of that time before getting paroled. She also faces another 3 to 5 years in jail for the assault by auto charge, Amy's blood alcohol level was almost three times over the legal limit in 2010 when she slammed her SUV at 50 mph into a car that was turning into a driveway. Amy killed the passenger and injured the driver.

She never should've left MP after the first season.

Amber said...

@MISCH - No way. Lohan is a cockroach. She's indestructible.

Misch, I see Lindsay doing something like this in the future, but walking away with no jail time. Because she's Lindsay.

@paris, sadly I agree with you.

If it was my family member who was killed, I'd be outraged that she is only facing 5-10 years in prison. She chose to drink, she chose to drive and she should have to face a much larger sentence.

For killing someone that was not at fault they should get life in jail with No parole.

If this happend in LA she never would of been convicted, hello and thank you NJ.

If you are drunk and in a car that is a murder weapon and you are a murderer.

Ugh, I had such a huge crush on her in the early 90's...School Ties, Crybaby, MP, this one movie with a Beastie Boy...bummer.

jax said...

ugh..her lawyer was arguing that while she admits to drinking she shouldn't be held criminally responsible!

ya, ok. Bitch, you ain't got no money! You aren't paying restitution on a PERSON.

jax said...

Ingrid- Lost Angels!!!! Ad Rock...mmm.

What a weird and fucked up movie that was.

Agree with others. Drinking & driving is playing Russian Roulette with the lives of every person on the road. If you want to risk your life..drink and be merry. But don't risk the lives of others.

Drink less or call a fucking cab.

As heinous as this crime is, it is reported by Enty with way less, if any, disgust as anything Chris Brown does or the Halle-Gabriel-Olivier situation. Just saying.

nessa said...

Drunk drivers should be convicted of manslaughter everytime :/

Ingrid Superstar said...

Probably because she hasn't done anything of note acting or celeb-wise in like 20 years, digal704.

Digal, I was thinking that maybe because anybody can drink too much, make a bad decision whilst drunk and get behind the wheel.

It takes a special kind of loser to hit a person over and over, when the object of their anger is weaker and cannot fend them off.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Astrogirl, that was exactly what I was going to say. Locane didn't deliberately hit that car, but Chris Brown deliberately beat Rihanna. Yes, Rihanna didn't die, as opposed to Locane's victim, but it doesn't make it right for Brown to beat women.

Also, for every Chris Brown or Halle Berry post here, there are way many more Real Housewives, Lohans or Kardashians articles.
