In the early 1990s, Amy Locane was headed for stardom. The actress landed the role of Allison Vernon-William alongside Johnny Depp in the musical comedy, Cry-Baby and in 1992 she was casted as Sandy Harling in the first season of the soap opera Melrose Place.

Prior to her big Hollywood debut, the New Jersey-born actress built up experience by starring in over 60 commercials and as a regular on the 1984 sitcom Spencer.

Amy starred in a few more TV and movie roles throughout the 90s and early 2000s, but in 2006 she announced that she had gotten engaged and retired from acting in Hollywood blockbusters.

She tied the knot with Mark Bovenizer two years later and in that time she occasionally took on roles in local community theater, but it wasn't long after that the life she built began to crumble.

In 2010, Amy was driving drunk near her home in Hopewell, New Jersey when she collided with another car, killed a 60-year-old woman named Helene Seaman and severely injuring her husband, Fred.

Amy was sentenced to three years in prison for vehicular homicide and assault after authorities found her blood contained three times the legal alcohol limit. She was released in June 2015 after serving two years and four months.

Despite the victim's family appeal to have Amy serve more time, earlier this year a judge refused to change her sentence taking into consideration that Amy has a young daughter with a chronic illness. Although she's enjoying her newfound freedom, her actions that fateful night continue to haunt her.

Amy sat down for her first major interview since leaving jail and she opens up about how her life has changed forever and what she's doing to stop others from making the same mistake.
