Thirty years ago on May 21, 1992, Amy Fischer who was nicknamed Long Island Lolita was arrested for shooting Mary Jo Buttafuoco in the face at her front door in Massapequa, New York. Fischer, a 17-year-old, had been having an affair with Mary Jo's husband, Joey Buttafuoco. Although the victim survived, she has facial paralysis. Fischer's sentence was reduced to reckless assault and she regained her freedom at age 24 with the help of Mary Jo. The incident ran through tabloids and books and movies capitalized on this incident. In July 2021, A&E updated its true crime blog, What's Amy Fisher's Life Like Now?
