Amy Locane-Bovenizer is headed to jail.

On Thursday, the Melrose Place star was sentenced to three years in prison for a 2010 drunk driving accident that killed a New Jersey woman, per Fox News.

Locane-Bovenizer, 41, faced up to 10 years in prison for the fatal DUI crash that took the life of 60-year-old Helene Seeman.

According to Fox News, however, the judge lowered the maximum sentence because of the hardship on the actress's two children, one of whom has a medical and mental disability.

The victim's husband, Fred Seeman, reportedly yelled, "What a travesty!" at the judge.
