Amy Locane charged in death

Amy Locane, who played Sandy Louise Harling on Melrose Place for 13 episodes in the early 90s and starred alongside Johnny Depp in Cry Baby, has been charged with vehicular homicide after killing a person while under the influence of alcohol this weekend.  The 38 year old actress reportedly was involved in a hit and run fender bender moments before causing the deadly accident in New Jersey that killed the passenger of a car.

For causing the fatal accident, the actress is charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree assault by auto.  Officers on scene noted that her eyes were bloodshot and glassy and she smelled like alcohol. Examiner

For causing the death of an innocent person Locane faces only five to ten years behind bars if convicted.  Is it just me or doesn’t that seem like a very light possible sentence for a reckless act that has destroyed a family??
