Lane Garrison Sentenced to Three Years and Four Months

If you have been following Law in Life’s coverage of the criminal prosecution of Lane Garrison for the December 2, 2006 incident that left a teenage passenger dead, and two others injured, you know that Garrison’s sentencing has been delayed, until today.

The Associated Press reports about the sentencing of this former Prison Break actor. Read the full story by clicking here.

Garrison faced a possible maximum sentence of six years and eight months, but instead, “The judge imposed both prison time and four years of parole and ordered Garrison to pay around $300,000 in restitution to the victims and their families.”

It is important to note that the restitution Garrison ordered to pay may not necessarily limit the victims’ rights in a civil court.
