Sandy From Melrose Place Gets Only 3 Years In Prison
Today in Somerville, NJ, Amy Locane-Bovenizer, who was Sandy in the first season of Melrose Place and Allison in Cry-Baby, was sentenced to 3 years in the clink after she was convicted in November of vehicular manslaughter.
Amy's booze alcohol level was three times over the legal limit when she crashed her Chevy Tahoe into a car, killing the passenger, 60-year-old Helene Seeman. Amy could've gotten up to 10 years, but the judge reduced her sentence all the way down, because she has a 4-year-old daughter who suffers from Crohn's disease and he felt sorry for her (cut to Lindsay Lohan trolling a children's hospital to look for a girl with Crohn's disease to kidnap). When the judge gently slapped Amy down with only a 3 year sentence, the victim's family cried over the injustice and left the court room.
HuffPo says that Amy has already served 81 days in the clink, so she'll be eligible for parole in 2 1/2 years. Once she gets out of prison, her drivers license will be suspended for 5 years, she'll be on probation for 3 years and she'll have to pay thousands of dollars in fines. Before Amy's sentencing, her lawyer told the judge that her two young daughters were in a bad way while she was in prison and her 4-year-old's health was getting worse. After sentencing, Amy's mother said that she was happy that her granddaughters will have their mom back soon.
Amy apologized to Helene Seeman's family, but they didn't give three shits about what she had to say. Helen's 26-year-old son Ford told reporters that Amy's soft sentence made their suffering worse.
I was going to say that if Amy wasn't a celebrity the judge would've sentenced her to 20 years in prison and also sentenced her mom to 20 years in prison for giving birth to her, but then I remembered that the homeless lady who chases dogs in the park across the street from my apartment building probably has more fans than this bitch does. Amy's last major acting job was playing Maggie Gyllenhaal's sister in Secretary and that was over 10 years ago. I guess we know that judge's favorite Melrose Place character was fucking Sandy.
