‘Melrose Place’ Actress Faces Re-Sentencing In Fatal Drunken Driving Crash

SOMERVILLE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A former “Melrose Place” actress who has already served prison time for a fatal drunken driving crash in 2010 is scheduled to be re-sentenced.

A hearing is being held Friday.

Amy Locane-Bovenizer was convicted of vehicular manslaughter, assault by auto and other offenses and faced a sentencing range of five to 10 years on the most serious count. But in 2013, a judge sentenced her to three years, and she served about 2 1/2 years before being released.

Last summer, an appeals court ordered the judge to offer a more detailed justification for why he downgraded her sentence. The judge later conceded he should have sentenced her to an additional six months.

Locane-Bovenizer appeared in 13 episodes of TV’s “Melrose Place” and in movies including “Cry-Baby,” “School Ties” and “Secretary.”
