'Melrose Place' actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer won't do more time for fatal crash

A judge says a former "Melrose Place" actress won't have to go back to prison for a fatal drunken driving crash in 2010.



Amy Locane-Bovenizer already served about two and a half years of a three-year sentence handed down four years ago.



An appeals court last summer said the judge didn't offer enough explanation for why he sentenced her below the five-to-10-year range and ordered a new sentencing.



On Friday the judge said Locane-Bovenizer's conduct since her release shows she isn't a threat to society.



Prosecutors had sought a seven-year sentence.



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



The accident in Somerset County killed 60-year-old Helene Seeman and seriously injured Seeman's husband, Fred.
