'Prison Break's Lane Garrison Released From Prison

Former 'Prison Break' actor Lane Garrison, who was serving a sentence of three years for a drunken driving crash that killed a 17-year-old boy, has been released from prison.

The 28-year-old actor was paroled at 3:50 AM early Wednesday morning from the California Correctional Institute, located roughly 110 miles north of Los Angeles. He was greeted by family and friends upon being released.

Garrison was sentenced to 40 months in state prison after he plead guilty to vehicular manslaughter in October 2007, from a December 2006 crash in which he rammed his Land Rover into a tree.

He was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.20 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, and cocaine in his system.

Before he was sentenced, Garrison told the victim's family: "I think of you guys every night. I felt what it's like to be in prison. I want to show that my walk with sobriety will be very easy. I want to help other kids not make the same mistake I did. I am sickened by my behavior on that night. My thoughts keep coming back to that night."

Although he was sentenced to three years and four months, Garrison earned good behavior credits to reduce his time in prison by participating in a rehab program, and ended up serving 19 months in all.
