Amy Locane attended a wrap party before the incident happened.

On June 27, 2010, Amy Locane started serving her first prison sentence following a fatal car accident due to drunk driving. Authorities said she drove at 53 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone, and he smashed into Fred Seeman's car and instantly killed his wife, Helene.

The Melrose Place actress served three years in prison for vehicular homicide and assault, getting released in 2015.

The court re-reviewed her case, and she soon received an additional eight years of prison sentence due to the "too lenient" initial sentence.

"I got a lot of support from John Waters particularly. The whole Cry-Baby cast is a very tight-knit little family, we are very supportive of one another. I have heard from Ricki [Lake], Traci [Lords] and Patty [Hearst]."

He was convicted of raping two women in the early 2000s.

Months after Danny Masterson's victims revealed the dreaded experiences they had with him, District Attorney George Gascón sentenced him to 30 years to life in prison.

"This has been a long and arduous road for the victims of Mr. Masterson," he said of Masterson's rape victims. "They not only survived his abuse, they also survived a system that is often not kind to victims."

The That '70s Show alum received an accusation for the first time in 2017, with the Los Angeles Police Department launching a probe into the alleged sexual misconduct. He was charged with raping three women whom he met through the Church of Scientology.

Harvey Weinstein famously became a film producer and had a successful stint in the industry before his arrest.

Harvey Weinstein received an additional 16 years in prison while serving his 23-year prison sentence for rape and sexual assault charges. Dozens of women broke their silence over the traumatic experience they claimed they had with the disgraced producer, including Salma Hayek, Rose McGowan, and Mira Sorvino.

Before his latest sentencing in February, Weinstein maintained his innocence, telling the court that the whole case was a setup against him.

"I never raped or sexually assaulted Jane Doe 1. I never knew this woman, and the fact is she doesn't know me. This is about money," he said of one of the alleged victims. "Please don't sentence me to life in prison. I don't deserve it."
