Jailed Seven Years for Shooting Mary Jo Buttafuoco, Amy Fisher Gets Forgiveness—and a Reduced Sentence
With Mary Jo on board, Judge Ira Wexner reduced Fisher's sentence to a maximum of 10½ years, making her immediately eligible for release. On May 4 she appeared before the parole board, which had the power to free her in a matter of days. In any event, with time off for good behavior, she cannot be held beyond August. It is not clear what Fisher, who has been taking a business course behind bars and was elected last year by her fellow inmates to be their representative to prison authorities, plans to do once she is out, though she may be able to make some money on a book deal. One person Fisher is not likely to be socializing with is Joey, 43, who, with Mary Jo, now lives in West Hills, Calif., where he still works in the auto-body-shop business. He also does some acting and is slated to appear in a movie called The Underground Comedy, due out soon.
Fisher's mother, Rose, has no doubt that Amy now has her impulses under control. "She is a very hard worker," Rose recently told PEOPLE, "and when she sets her mind to something, she will do it."
