Lane Garrison During His Trial

Lane Garrison, who starred on Prison Break, was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter back in 2006 when he killed 17-year old Vahagn Setian while drunk driving.

Garrison, who pleaded guilty to the charge and is currently serving 40 months in prison, reached a financial settlement with the parents of Setian earlier this week. The settlement comes from a civil suit filed by the Setians last year for the wrongful death of their son. The exact amount remains confidential.

Garrison has reached a settlement with Michelle Ohana, who was 15 at the time of the crash, and spent two months in a wheelchair due to her injuries.
