New Twist in Garrison Manslaughter Case

8/2/2007 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Prison Break" star Lane Garrison will face the music in a Beverly Hills courtroom in about an hour, and the results could be dramatic and surprising.

TMZ has learned the judge will hold a victim impact hearing, in which the two women in the vehicle he was driving will testify. We're also told the parents of the 17-year-old boy who died in the crash will also be front and center.

Garrison, who pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter and faces a max of six years in prison, will also have friends present to testify. Jessica Simpson, one of Garrison's childhood friends, will not take the stand.

The buzz we're hearing -- it's not going to be as cut and dried as everyone thinks. Stay tuned.

All the best for court Lane

I dont care what you say, everyone deserves a second chance in life, I am not saying that what Lane did was ok, but he made a mistake, it could happen to anyone.

But he has took full responsibility for the crash and has done service announcements, I admire him for doing that. Bash me all you want but thats just my opinion.

Thinking if you Lane

For once a celebrity steps up to the plate and accepts responsibility for his actions and doesn't try to pass the buck or check into faux rehab. Give the guy a break!

I agree, he deserves a second chance like everyone else does.
And he'll get his chance after he does the time.

Ahhhhh the good life. Hey kids, become a celebrity and you'll be able to take drugs, start drinking at 15, and not have to every worry about facing reality.

I'm glad Lane feels soooooo bad about his F-up, but anyone who commited the same crime would receive at least 6-15 yrs. in the pokey for manslaughter. Sad part is, while lane gets out an probably re-vamps his career, that poor kids family will see Lane alive and free, and on T.V.

What a good friend Jessica Simpson is to be there for her friend when he clearly needs all the friends he can at this time.

This is not going to be an easy day for anyone - especially the family of the deceased.

The people with him made their own choice to ride with him while knowing that he had been partying. Yes he is at fault but they are not totally innocent either. He didn't shoot anyone, it was a car accident.

This is just a sad, sad story. My heart goes out to the victim's family. I have no doubt this man is suffering tremendously for what has transpired. They could all use our prayers.

At least he has made an apology---and not on GMA trying to look perfect. His PS announcement is heartwrenching to watch. He seems contrite and true. Nicole seems phony and given time I think she will be out again. Pregnancy is not rehab. Jessica Simpson is ridiculous--claims to be a Christian. Where is she is her friends time of need? Oh yeah, she is in Nashville recording a country album. Can't hack it in rock/pop make a country one.
