Lane Garrison: Free in 90 Days?

Lane Garrison, the 27-year-old former Prison Break star, may walk free in just 90 days!

After pleading guilty in May to vehicular manslaughter and drunken driving, Judge Fox said at the Beverly Hills courthouse on Thursday, “The fact that you may have some notoriety, I don’t really care. We don’t have all the information. I intend to remand Mr. Garrison today to the Department of Corrections for diagnostics.”

According to TMZ, “Garrison will be sent to a California prison for 90 days, where shrinks and others will determine if Garrison is a suitable candidate for probation.”

If he is suitable, Lane is a free man.

    90 days??? this is sick?? Unforturely, the only way to stop this is make illegal to drive in america. I guess Lindsey lohan will get nothing but 2 weeks now.

    HEY!!!!!! Says:

    Yes I agree this is sick and sad. As for making it illegal to drive in america #3 ??, that would never happen and besides there will still be those that drink and ride bicycles. OK, I am sorry – this is not something to joke about.

    Isn’t it kind of ironic that he was in Prison Break and now he’s going to jail. But it’s totally weird the time they get to spend in prison. Paris 45 days which turned to 23 days, Nicole 4 DAYS that’s nothing and Lane 90 days. Lane’s has the worst but it’s still nothing.

    Mmmmm Says:

    His sentence is not just 90 days, that is his sentence that he will send in jail. His mental sentence of what he has done, that will be a life time. If he is human, this will mess him up.

    Less COPS @ the DONUT Shops and, pulling more MOTHER@******’S over that, look under the influence. I think their should be no legal limit % of what alcohol is acceptable. O tolerance. People that want to drink @ bars need, to call a cabbie! Not one drink or just one beer. If, you want to drink that’s fine. Do it in the safety of you’re own home not, being on the road being a hazard to innocent people and other drivers. It’s not fair. Party @ home. It’s less expensive and more safe. It won’t happen b/c all the bars will shut down. Boo Hoo!

    I cannot believe this. I am glad that Lane manned up and plead guilty, which he was anyway. I also know that he did so to get a lighter sentence, but 90 freaking days? Ninety freaking days for being drunk, drugged up, hanging with teenagers, driving and killing one of them. I just don’t get it. He’s going to get 90 days for being a grown a$$ man, hanging with teens drunk and high, and taking one of their lives.


    If my husband (who’s black, of course) had done this, they would want to hang him for partying with the teens alone. I hate to make this a race/money issue, but WTH? It has to be!!!!! I already know that he’s going to be found to qualify for probation. I’m completely and utterly taken aback by this. This is ludicrous!!!!!

    almost Says:

    I am with you Mmmmm…. He has to live with the fact that his actions killed a person for the rest of his life. 1 day or the rest of his life in jail won’t change that. Plus Paris and Nicole and Lane and all other celebrities lately ahve gotten the same treatment as anyone else facing jail. The truth is jail time gets reduced to nothing or next to it because jails are over crowded.

    He KILLED someone and he should pay. 90 days is NOT harsh enough punishment! I do not feel sorry for Lane… he deserves to feel guilty and horrible the rest of his life for what he has done.

    Our society is so permissive of drunk driving it is disgusting. It is sad how all you get for killing someone is a slap in the wrist. Drunk driving is a choice — it was not like someone forced Lane to get in the car after drinking. He decided to.

    I am sad for the victim’s family. At least putting Lane away for a long time would give them a little piece of mind, but they don’t even get justice for their kid.

    almost Says:

    I am not in any way say I agree with the sentence Lane recieved. But my question is why the heck where a bunch a teenagers in the car with an adult??? Where were the parents when their kids were out drinking and partying and CHOOSING to get in a vehicle with a drunk man?? Yes it was wrong for him to use drugs, drink and then drive. But what sane person gets in the car with a person who is drunk? Chances are the teens were just partying with him because he is a celebrity. The fact is Lane isn’t the only guilty party.

    concerned texan Says:

    I happen to disagree w/the judgement in this case; however, i feel that the the judge is putting his money Garrison to stay sober.. at his age.. not likely and if he gets off w/probation only…he will HAVE TO STAY SOBER or his probation will be revoked and he will spend every minute in the slammer…..

    Fresh Raggedy Anne Says:

    Hmm. almost you do have a valid point. But I think every teenager does deviant things behind their parent’s backs at some point. They say they’re going somehwere, and they head aonther.
    But to have only double what Paris was sentenced for with a fatality involved? Daaaaamn. This is fucked up!

    I would like to know what the usual prison sentences are for cases like this.

    me Says:

    This is bull. Being a celebrity shouldn’t put you above the law. I don’t care if he has to live with this for the rest of his life. He’s not the only person that’s suffering. The family of that kid he killed also have to deal with the consequences of Lane’s actions. Did we think about that??? 90 days!!! Freak the American legal system. This is why so many other countries thumb their noses at our court systems. We’re so freaking celebrity obsessed that even killing a person doesn’t seem to merit the correct type of punishment. I pray for anyone that happens to be in the path of an overly pampered celebrity that believes they’re the second coming.

    I find this sentence to be a complete head-scratcher. I could understand if Lane were A-list and that were one of the factors influencing this but he’s not – most people don’t even know who he is, unless they’re Prison Break fans. It’s not like he’s Tom Cruise. That being the case, I don’t get it, particularly since he has some priors too (not alcohol-related ones).

    I’m still a fan of Prison Break but this really puts me off, especially since he’s a repeat offender who had a great chance to clean up his act and he completely threw it away.

    That isn’t fair, 90 days and he took someone’s life.

    Laur Says:

    If the offense is a misdemeanor, up to one year in the county jail. If felony DUI vehicular manslaughter (but without gross negligence) is found, the sentence can be up to four years in state prison. If felony DUI vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence is found, the court can impose up to 10 years state prison. Substantial drivers license suspensions may also be imposed

    Those are the normal sentences for his offence. If his sentance was for a year then he would get paroled at 90 days with good behavour …im not positive, not an expert at all but i think they have to serve 1/4 of the sentance before there eligable for parole.

    Wake Up Says:

    What the F is wrong with most of you. Yeah, he made a huge mistake, but isn’t the point of prison to make sure the person doesn’t repeat their actions again and face some consequences. I think this guy will honestly never drive drunk again. Plus, he may have accidentally killed someone, but that person was probably also drunk and chose to get into the car.

    N Says:

    I do feel for the family of the deceased, but I truly believe that he is already paying dearly for what he did. This will obviously stay with him for a lifetime whether he spends 90 years or 90 days in jail. He didn’t even try to fight it. He chose to plead guilty. He could have hired a pitbull attorney and made this a dragged out media circus but he didn’t. If I were him, I’d spend the rest of my life talking to kids and making them see the dangers of drinking and driving. Let’s just see what unfolds from all of this.

    my question is would he have got the same treatment if he wasnt a celeb?

    I like him, and he made a big mistake, but he deserves more time than that.
