Joe Simpson Makes Jailhouse Visit to Garrison

Lane "Tweener" Garrison is "surviving" in prison, Joe Simpson tells TVGuide.com. The former Prison Break star once lived with the Simpson family, and Joe, a producer and dad to Jessica and Ashlee, visited Garrison in Twin Towers Correctional Facility, an L.A. County jail last week. The actor is awaiting sentencing for vehicular manslaughter — a 17-year-old passenger died in a crash that occurred when the actor was driving drunk, on Dec. 2, 2006 — and could get more than six years. "He’s doing really good, but it’s a scary place. He’s a good kid with a great heart who’s had a horrible life," says Simpson, a former minister. Garrison, who has admitted to having been a teen thief, has his own cell, we’re told. "That’s helpful for his physical safety," Simpson said. "He’ll be all right" — Reported by Ileane Rudolph
