Amy Locane-Bovenizer, who played Sandy Harling on Melrose Place and Allison in Cry Baby, was sentenced to 3 years for killing a 60 year-old woman in a car crash. Ms. Locane-Bovenizer was drinking and driving, with a BAC of almost 3 times the legal limit. The judge granted her a lenient sentence because of her two children who require medical assistance. Her husband, however, didnt think it was lenient enough, as it’s claimed he shouted, “What a travesty!” immediately after the sentencing. EDIT: IT WAS NOT HER HUSBAND, BUT THE VICTIM’S HUSBAND WHO YELLED THIS. APOLOGIES FOR THE MISTAKE.
I can’t even imagine how horrible everyone feels in this situation, from the family of the victim, to Locane0-Bovenizer and her family. There have been quite a few actresses who seem to have trouble driving and I wonder had they killed someone if they would have gone to jail and actually stayed there for more than a few hours. Not that I wanted them to kill anyone! I’m just wondering what will it take for jail to stick. What sad horrible thing has to happen? And when these things do happen, the inevitable discussion is, “Is the law too easy on Hollywood celebrities?”
What do you think? Was her sentence too light? Do you think others get way with too much?
