Lane Garrison Breaks Free

And he's out!

After spending a year and a half in state prison, actor Lane Garrison is now a free man.

The Prison Break star pleaded guilty in November 2007 to vehicular manslaughter, after a DUI crash left a 17-year-old boy dead and injured a 15-year-old girl. At the time of car wreck, Lane was drugged up on cocaine and his blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

He was originally sentenced to 40 months in prison, but according to Terry Thornton, spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Lane had earned enough good-behavior credits to cut that in half.

"He was sentenced to three years and four months, but inmates, including Mr. Garrison can earn credits that reduce the time that they spend in prison," Terry said. "He received half time--meaning that for every day that he participated in a rehabilitative program, he got a day off his sentence." 

Lane will now head to rehab to shorten his probation.

Upon his release from the California Correctional Institute this morning, Lane was met by loved ones.  

"He's done his time and now he's looking forward to trying to move on with his life," an insider told E! Online.

We wish him the best.
