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.

Amy Locane is in serious trouble with the law.

The actress, who appeared on the original Melrose Place and played a small role in the 2002 movie Secretary, crashed into the side of another car in Montgomery, New Jersey on Sunday night, killing the woman in the passenger's seat of that vehicle.

The second driver involved was taken to a nearby hospital, while Locane was arrested on the spot for DUI. The New Jersey Star-Ledger reports the actress admitted to drinking several glasses of wine prior to the accident.

Incredibly, Locane rear-ended another car before getting into this major crash. She fled that scene, but was followed by a driver who phoned police and said Locane was "swerving and knocking down several mailboxes."

A mother of two, Locane has been charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree assault by auto. She could face 10 years in prison if convicted.

UPDATE: In December, the actress was indicted in New Jersey on charges of aggravated manslaughter.
