Former “Prison Break” star Lane Garrison has settled a lawsuit with Michelle Ohana and the parents of Vahagn Setian, a 17-year-old high school student who was killed after the actor got behind the wheel while intoxicated.
Superior Court of California papers, obtained byAccess Hollywood, confirm “that the parties have reached a settlement of the entire action.” Details of the settlement were not made public.
Garrison is close to finishing a sentence of three years and four months in prison for vehicular manslaughter. A rep for the California Department of Corrections told People magazine the actor is expected to be paroled in the next “few weeks.”
Garrison lost control of his sport utility vehicle and rammed a tree in 2006. The crash killed his passenger, Setian, who was a student at Beverly Hills High School. Two girls in the car survived, including Ohana, who was 15 at the time.
Last year, Garrison responded to a letter from Access Hollywood and revealed that prison has been tough. He also said he hopes people have taken a lesson from his story.
“This has been the hardest year of my life,” he wrote. “I hope people, young and old, are learning from my mistakes and what can happen when you drink and drive. I have much to say about the pain I’ve felt and seen inside of prison. It has been eye-opening and a harrowing experience.”
