Lane Garrison most likely to get a "Prison Break" -- UPDATE
In late May, Garrison pleaded guilty to the manslaughter and linked alcohol charges that resulted in the death of a 17-year-old passenger and the injury of two teenage girls. Garrison was driving with a blood alcohol content of .20 (California's legal limit is .08).
Apparently, these kids were just fans of his who invited him to a party and the accident occurred on the way to get some more booze. What a horrible, mindless tragedy. The in-jail diagnostic by parole officers and psychologists will lead up to an Oct. 31 sentencing, where the judge will decide if he is a suitable candidate for straight probation.
I am personally torn over how to feel about Lane possibly getting such a lenient sentence. Manslaughter is always a crime of mistakes and, given his courtroom tears, he seems genuinely sorry. However, I can't help but wonder whether this is just another case of "celebrity justice."
