Prison Break star breaks from prison

Actor Lane Garrison has been released from prison after serving 19 months and three days in police custody, reports E! Online. The 28-year-old actor played the inmate David "Tweener" Apolskis on Fox's Prison Break from 2005-2006.

Garrison was convicted of manslaughter and drunken driving in 2007, when his SUV crashed and killed on of his passengers, a 17-year-old boy. Also in the car was a pair of 15-year-old girls. The actor was 27 years at the time. In addition to being over the legal limit for alcohol while operating a motor vehicle, Garrison also had cocaine in his system.

He was sentenced to 40 months in prison, but will leave jail on probation and check into an in-patient rehab clinic. He was released on good behavior. During his sentence, he was in the prison rehabilitation clinic and served as a mentor to other inmates.

Here's hoping he gets his life sorted out and continues on in the right direction.

condolences to the family who lost their kid...it's a human life we're talking abt...and you can't put time on it, whether be it 19mths or 60 years...

for him, just only hope that this incident is more than just a lesson and he has learnt something extremely important from it. Nothing much can be done now that the kid he crashed into is gone.

Unlike other "stars" maybe he could make it through rehab, and then maybe stay clean for some time

I don't call it just, but as I recall, he came in willingly and faced what he had done. If it had gone on for months with him fighting to stay out of prison it would have been different. The way the case went down there was dignity and respect for the family of the boy that died.

While it's a tragedy a 17 year old boy died he served his time and only he will have to live with what he's done. Hopefully he's on the straight and narrow.

How can you learn your lesson after killing a man, especially a young boy? This was not an accident.I too totally agree with spysmiley1.

Hope he learned his lesson. Drunk driving is one of the worst things a driver can do.

It's called murder. Just think if one of your loved ones was killed by an irresponsible person. Would you actually consider this just? Is 19 whole months enough? It sure is not enough in my opinion. This is why we have a nation of murderers, we allow crap like this to go on with a slap on the wrist.

Whoever said 19 months is a long time needs to come back to reality. Forever is the loss of the loved one, now that's a long time.

I have no doubt in my mind that he will find work. He was very talented. He just will have a little trouble at first.

19 months does suck. I hope the parents of the poor boy in the car are okay with their son's murderer only getting a year and a half. I loved Tweener too, but come on!

He was an awesome character. Shame they had to kill him off, maybe it would have never happened. And the actor seemed really cool, I guess he just had a little to much fun. Damn! 19 months, that would have sucked, hope someone still takes him on their show as an actor although it's very unlikely now.
