A former “Melrose Place” actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer has been sentenced to three years in prison after killing a woman in DUI crash the summer 2010.
“What a travesty!” the victim’s husband, Fred Seeman, yelled after the sentence was read. “This is not justice,” the victim’s 26-year-old son, Ford Seeman, told the judge before he stormed out of the courtroom.
A jury in November convicted Amy Locane-Bovenizer of vehicular homicide in the 2010 death of 60-year-old Helene Seeman in Montgomery Township.
Locane-Bovenizer will be eligible for parole after 2 1/2 years and will be credited the 81 days she has already served. She also had her license suspended for five years and will be on probation for three years after her release. She must pay several thousand dollars in fines.
Locane-Bovenizer, who didn’t testify at the trial, appeared in 13 episodes of TV’s “Melrose Place” and in movies including “Cry-Baby,” “School Ties” and “Secretary.”
Locane-Bovenizer, 41, is married and has two children. Apparently the judge was lenient on her because one of her children is a special needs child. However, the victim’s husband, Fred Seeman, took no sympathy on Locane. He yelled out, “What a travesty!” after her sentence was read.
