Garrison Sentenced To Over 3 Years In Prison For Deadly Crash

Former "Prison Break" actor Lane Garrison was sentenced to three years and four months in prison today for a drunken driving crash that killed a teenager last December.

Garrison could have faced nearly seven years in prison.

He had no reaction to the Los Angeles sentencing and was taken away in handcuffs to immediately begin serving the time.

Before the ruling, he apologized to the family of the 17-year-old Beverly Hills High School student killed in the crash, saying, "I'm sick of my own behavior that night. This remorse is genuine. I feel it every day."

The judge said the penalty was necessary.

Superior Court Judge Elden Fox said, "The public has the right to know that conduct such as this, causing devastation such as this" will have consequences.

Prosecutors had asked for a sentence of four years and eight months, two years less than the maximum.
