Amy Locane 2017
Following the crash, testing revealed Locane's blood alcohol level was three times the limit for legal impairment. In December 2010, Locane was indicted for aggravated manslaughter and assault by automobile. On November 27, 2012, a Somerset County jury convicted Locane of vehicular homicide and assault by auto. On February 14, 2013, she was sentenced to three years in prison for the crime, with Montgomery Superior Court Judge Robert B. Reed imposing less than the minimum five-year sentence due to mitigating factors that included consideration of her children's welfare. Locane served her sentence at Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women and was released on parole on June 12, 2015. On July 22, 2016, a New Jersey appeals court ruled that the three-year sentencing would be re-reviewed due to what the court felt was an inadequate explanation by Reed for leniency. Upon review, Reed stated in September 2016 he had erred in his decision, and that she should serve an additional six months. On January 13, 2017, however, Reed ruled Locane would not have to go back to prison, saying her conduct since her release indicated she was not a threat to society. Speaking later about the crash and victims, Locane said the memory of Helen Seeman will "be forever in her thoughts. "
