‘Ink Master’ Daniel Silva Gets Jail Time, Probation in Corey La Barrie’s Death Case
Star “Ink Master” Daniel Silva has just been convicted in his criminal case involving the death of his friend, YouTube star Corey La Barrie, but he won’t spend much longer behind bars.
Silva was sentenced on Tuesday to 4 years in state prison, but his sentence is suspended. He did, however, get 365 days in county jail with 216 days of credit. He also gets 5 years of probation and 250 hours of community service.
His lawyer, Mike Cavalluzzi, tells TMZ … Daniel thinks the sentence is fair and that by serving probation there is a chance that the charge could be reduced to a misdemeanor in the future. Cavalluzzi added, “It is important for Daniel to work with Corey’s family to ensure that his friend’s memory is never forgotten.”
As we first reported … Silva pleaded no contest to grossly negligent vehicle manslaughter last month. As part of the deal, prosecutors agreed to drop the second degree murder charge … this according to the LA County District Attorney’s Office. Cavalluzzi was convinced Daniel would beat the murder charge after the fatal McLaren sports car crash in May.
TMZ broke history … Daniel was busted and responsible for 2nd degree murder after Corey died of injuries in a car crash just hours after leaving Corey’s 25th birthday party. Corey was a passenger in the car. We were told that Daniel was seen drinking before getting behind the wheel of the car.
Our police sources told us that Daniel attempted to flee after the accident but was arrested by witnesses. Corey cause of death has been listed as multiple blunt force injuries.
