Former Prison Break star Lane Garrison has been released on parole, E! reports.
The actor was released from the California Correctional Institute in Tehachapi, Calif., Wednesday. He began serving a 40-month term in November 2007 after pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter and two misdemeanor alcohol-related charges stemming from a 2006 car crash. The accident killed a 17-year-old boy and injured a 15-year-old girl.
Garrison, who was in a substance abuse treatment program in prison and served as a peer mentor to inmates, earned enough good-behavior credits to warrant an early release, according to Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
Garrison, 28, will now enter an in-patient rehabilitation center to shorten his probation.
Last week, Garrison agreed to a financial settlement with the families of the victims.
