Incarcerated former PRISON BREAK star LANE GARRISON has been moved to a maximum security prison, so he can study behind bars.
The 28-year-old actor was sentenced to serve 40 months behind bars after pleading guilty to a drink driving charge in October (07).
Garrison crashed his car while drunk and the accident left a 17-year-old passenger dead.
The actor, who is eligible for parole in February 2009, has been moved from Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego, California to the state's Corcoran prison.
And friends say he is making the move voluntarily, because he can study for a political science degree at the tougher facility.
A source tells Star magazine, "Lane never had the chance to go to college. So he's using his time behind bars to earn a degree."
