TV Star DUI Hit and Run


LOS ANGELES California DUI

More than 3,000 signatures were delivered this morning, in hopes of convincing a Beverly Hills judge to impose a severe sentence on actor Lane Garrison for the death of a teenager in a drunk driving crash.

Garrison, who starred in the TV Series "Prison Break," had twice the legal limit for alcohol when he crashed his S-U-V into a tree last December, killing a passenger, 17-year-old Vaughn Setian. Family spokesman James Lee says they want Garrison to get the maximum of 7 or 8 years in prison.

Garrison faces sentencing tomorrow. He pleaded guilty to two felonies: vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence and driving under the influence causing injury. He also pleaded guilty to providing alcohol to a minor, a misdemeanor.
