Former Melrose Place star Amy Locane was indicted by a grand jury on charges of aggravated manslaughter for a June car crash that killed a motorist.
"I believe that the aggravated manslaughter charges against Amy Locane are inappropriate and misplaced," Locane's lawyer, Blair Zwillman, tells E! News.
"I believe that when all of the facts of the incident become known, Amy will be acquitted. She has confidence in the criminal justice system."
According to the original criminal complaint, Amy Locane admitted to police that she had been drinking wine before getting behind the wheel.
At around 9 p.m. on June 27, her 2007 Chevy Tahoe hit the passenger side of Fred Seeman's 2010 Mercury Milan as he was turning into a driveway. Helene Seeman, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was killed at the scene, according to poilce.
Authorities also said the fatal crash was Locane's second accident of the night. She was already suspected of rear-ending another vehicle miles away.
Locane, who just made our celebrity mug shots gallery as aresult, is facing up to five years for assault charge and 10-30 years for manslaughter.
