Amy Elizabeth Fisher (born August 21st, 1974) is an American woman. At age 17 she was tagged by the media as The Long Island Lolita when she shot and severely wounded Mary Jo Buttafuoco, the wife of her lover Joey Buttafuoco. At first charged with first-degree attempted murder, she later pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to six years in prison. Paroled in 1999 she became a journalist and writer, followed by a career as a pornographic actress.
As a 16-year-old high school student who had just damaged her parents car, she approached local auto body repair shop owner Buttafuoco to make repairs to the vehicle. She traded sexual favors with Buttafuoco to fix the car without informing the family that he had done so.
The affair went on until 1992 when Fisher had an accomplice drive her to Buttafuoco's home in Massapequa. There she told Mary Jo Buttafuoco that her husband was carrying on with her younger sister, and provided a t-shirt advertising Buttafuoco's auto repair business as proof. When Mrs. Buttafuoco turned away Fisher shot her in the head.
Realizing how bad it looked for him, Joey Buttafuoco quickly turned state's evidence and identified Fisher as the woman who attempted to kill his wife. Based on a hotel receipt that was dated just a few days before Fisher's 17th birthday, he was eventually convicted of statutory rape and spent six months in prison.
Fisher was charged with first-degree attempted murder. In December 1992 she pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree assault and was sentenced to 5 to 15 years in prison. In 1999 a new plea deal was arranged that in effect allowed her to be immediately released from prison.
After being released from prison Fisher went to work as a columnist for the Long Island Press. She would later marry and have three children. Recently Fisher has begun a career as a stripper and a pornographic actress.
