After the sentencing, the 27-year-old former Prison Break actor put his head in his hands as he was being led out of the courtroom. Garrison’s lawyer, Harland Braun, said that Lane “thought it was a fair sentence.” The actor was ordered to pay more than $280,000 in restitution to his victims’ families. Garrison was involved in a car accident last December that killed a 17-year-old Beverly Hills High School student, Vahagn Setian, and left a 15-year-old girl injured. He pleaded guilty in May to vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence and two other alcohol-related charges. Addressing the court before the sentencing, Lane said, “I think of you guys [the victim’s family] 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 just want to say how sorry I am to the Setian family. I am sickened by my behavior on that night. My thoughts keep coming back to that night.” Garrison had faced a maximum term of six years and eight months in prison. The district attorney said the actor will probably go to a state prison facility with a drug and alcohol program.
