90210 Counselor Says Students Were Overcome

The testimony has begun in the Lane Garrison sentencing hearing.

You'll recall a 17-year-old student died in the car driven by an intoxicated Garrison, when the actor hit a tree in B.H.

A high school counselor is on the stand right now, testifying about how his students couldn't handle the grief. He said "I felt hopeless. I know they needed an opportunity to say goodbye. "

He went on "They were depressed, weren't eating, wouldn't leave the tree [that the car hit]".
