Former 'Melrose' Star Indicted In Fatal Car Crash

12/16/2010 6:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Melrose Place" star Amy Locane-Bovenizer has been indicted in New Jersey on charges of aggravated manslaughter and assault by auto following her deadly crash earlier this year ... TMZ has learned.

Amy Locane Indicted
Sources tell TMZ Locane was indicted this afternoon by a grand jury in Somerset County.

As we previously reported, Locane smashed into the side of another car in Montgomery, NJ back in June ... killing the woman in the front seat. Locane told cops she had several glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel.

Locane faces 10-30 years behind bars for the manslaughter charge -- and 5-10 years for the assault by auto charge.

Locane's attorney Blair Zwillman tells TMZ he's "surprised" at the aggravated manslaughter charge, adding, "I don't believe it is supported by the law or the facts and I think it constitutes over-reaching by the prosecutor's office."

Really, just another douch_bag assh0_e lawyer. How about drinking and driving, you don't think that's aggravated. Where you get your license, Fisher Price University.

F'ng assho-e!

Ok. She said sorry. Let her drive around the street again. Oh, Charles Manson also said sorry.

Has-been celebs go to jail in America. Current celebs do not.

Wasn't this the pretty blonde girl in "School Ties" that Brendan Fraser's and Matt Damon's characters fight over? Sad to see someone sink so low, so fast. She had some potential, was sort of the "It" girl for awhile.

I hope she has to spend all the time in prison. At one point she will be able to go back to her family. She denied that to the person she killed by making a stupid decision to get behind the wheel after having several glasses of wine. I hope her children, who most likely inherited her stupid genes learn a very valuable lesson from all of this.

drinking, and then driving and killing someone should get you charged with pre-meditated murder

drinking before driving is the same as loading bullets into the gun before pulling the trigger

Exactly. That's what warrants the aggravated manslaughter.

But this piece of sh_t lawyer (normal) is trying to make it seem like it's not the norm. That his client is somehow being charged more than normal. Like she's being persecuted.

Go talk to the dead woman's family you worthless douch_ and ask them forgiveness, it's the least s*** lawyers like you can do.
