Amy Elizabeth Fisher (born August 21, 1974) is an American woman who became known as "the Long Island Lolita" by the media in 1992, when, at the age of 17, she shot and severely wounded Mary Jo Buttafuoco, the wife of her lover Joey Buttafuoco. She was initially charged with first-degree attempted murder, but eventually pleaded guilty to first-degree aggravated assault and served seven years in prison. After her parole in 1999, Fisher became a journalist and writer, before embarking on a career as a porn star in 2007.

Fisher was born in Wantagh, New York, to Elliot and Roseann Fisher, an Italian-American mother and a Jewish-American father. As a 16-year-old student at Kennedy High School in Bellmore, New York, Fisher began a sexual relationship with Joey Buttafuoco after damaging her parents' car and appealing to Buttafuoco, who owned a body shop, to make repairs without her family knowing of the damage.

On May 19, 1992, 17-year-old Fisher had an accomplice drive her to the Buttafuoco home in Massapequa, New York. When Mary Jo Buttafuoco answered the door, Fisher told her that Joey was having an affair with Fisher's younger sister, providing a t-shirt advertising Joey's auto body shop for her "proof." When Mary Jo turned away Fisher shot her in the head on the front porch and left the property.
