There will be no going home from prison for actor Lane Garrison this time if a director yells "Cut!" The 27-year-old actor has been sentenced to three years and four months of jail time yesterday for an auto accident that killed a 17-year old student, according to Reuters.

The former Prison Break actor pleaded guilty to manslaughter in May, after crashing his Land Rover into a tree while under the influence of alcohol and cocaine in December. Two 15-year-old girls were also in the car. They all met Garrison as he was on his way to a party.

Garrison has shown lots of remorse for the incident, and recorded a public-service announcement condemning drunk driving. The actor received half the possible maximum sentence.

Garrison played David "Tweener" Apolskis, an inmate at the fictional Fox River State Penitentiary in the show, and was introduced in the drama's first season. His character was killed off in the second season. He also appeared in the 2007 film Shooter.
