"Prison Break" Star Gets 40 Months in Prison
Former "Prison Break" actor Lane Garrison who, under the influence of alcohol and cocaine, ran his car into a tree killing a 17-year old boy and injuring 2 15-year old girls, was sentenced today to 3 years and 4 months in prison.
Garrison, 27, who lived with pop star Jessica Simpson, her minister father and their family for a year after leaving home when he was 17, played the character David "Tweener" Apolskis on the FOX drama.
Friends and family members tried to submit a 3000-signature petition asking for the maximum sentence of 7 years, but the judge refused to accept the petition calling it "inappropriate."
Garrison met the killed boy and his friends in the checkout line at a local grocery store. The teenagers who recognized Garrison from 'Prison Break' invited him over to their party.
Garrison ran his 2001 Land Rover into a tree after leaving the party with kids to buy more alcohol on December 2, 2006.
