Michael Douglas Arrives for Son's Sentencing

4/20/2010 12:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Douglas just arrived at Manhattan Federal Court in New York, where his son Cameron is about to be sentenced after pleading guilty to serious drug charges.


In a letter Michael wrote to the judge in the case, he asked that his son be shown mercy by saying, "I don't want to see him break."  Cameron's mom, Diandra Douglas, entered court right after Michael.

Stay tuned ... we'll let you know what happens inside.

I am saddened and disgusted by many of the comments on this story. Yes, I agree that BigBaby Douglass shouldn't get special treatment. I mean, he already has the luxury of a private attorney and has had more opportunities available to him in life than many who turn to drugs as a source of income. However, mandatory minimums are a problem, and a way to disenfranchise huge sectors of the population, but we rarely hear about it because they usually aren't coming from affluent families. Another thing is that drug addiction is first and foremost a medical issue, and the courts shouldn't flatter themselves by prioritizing the criminality of drug-related offenses, and coming down on individuals with no acknowledgment the medical and social causes and implications of drug abuse. If people consistently get thrown in jail because they are physically addicted to substances and are not given constructive treatment, only punishment, the cycle will continue. And what happens after strike 3? Mandatory minimums. Without treating the drug user you are setting them up to be locked up again. This is sad and becomes EXTREMELY suspicious when you realize that the prison system has become privatized. As a for-profit enterprise, jails want to fill their beds like hotels and, as much as you might disagree with addiction as a medical issue, this fact cannot be denied.

a few years. he's not the victim of hollywood celebrity, he's the victim of narcissistic parents and family. that doesn't let him off the hook or make him an exception.

Its not like this kid didn't have the best of everything. He even had an acting career. Maybe his father's fame and money will get this piece of trash out of jail so he can sell more drugs to kids. Stay tuned.

Its all very sad. Michael was probably not a great dad to the kid. I don't get it - all that money and privilege and to waste it on drugs. I don't get it. Currently reading the book, ''Meth Land'' - who knew Tom Arnold's sister Lori was responsible for bringing most of the Meth into Iowa and surrounding area? Talk about a loser. Sent to prison and came out and did the same thing again.

Please judge, we are rich my son should not have to pay for his crime. If this were an average citizen no one would be questioning if he should go to jail. I hope the judge is not blinded by the glare of Hollywood.

TO MICHAEL DOUGLAS: SO, YOU ARE PLEADING WITH THE JUDGE BECAUSE, "I DON'T WANT TO SEE HIM BREAK." It's all about YOU, isn't it??? How many times did you TURN YOUR BACK when your son came to you for help and answers. You don't even remember, do you! Where were you??? Just like millions of other parents in our country, my husband and I raised two magnificent sons who, never once, caused the law to come to our door. THAT, Mr Douglas, is called, "PARENTING" even tho we both had full time careers and no outside help. My heart breaks for Cameron for obvious reasons. I truly hope he finds professionals who will guide him through this horrible time in his life and especially for all the young people who turned to him for drugs. How come you haven't cared about seeing THEM break??? Think long and hard, Mr. Douglas. You are every bit as guilty as your son!!!

The problems start with the family. Michael was going after fame and women and did not spend time with his son growing up. That is the root of the problem. You should feel bad.

WHATEVER    

DOUGLAS WAS A ROTTEN FATHER. WHY ? BECAUSE HE TREATED THE KID'S MOTHER LIKE CRAP. HE SCREWED ANYTHING THAT MOVED WHILE HE WAS MARRIED. I'M SURE THIS KID WAS LEFT IN THE DUST WHILE DOUGLAS WAS BUSY HUMPING ANYTHING HE COULD. HE WENT TO THE , AH, "SEX ADDICTION" CLASSES TOO, {WHAT A JOKE}.
SO, IF YOUR FATHER TREATED YOUR MOTHER THAT BADLY, AND LIKELY IGNORED YOU IN THE PROCESS, YOU MIGHT HAVE PROBLEMS TOO.
OH BY THE WAY !!!!! DOUGLAS WENT AND RE-MARRIED ,AFTER DUMPING HIS WIFE AND KID LIKE SO MANY LOSER MEN DO, AND NOW HAS HIS PERFECT LITTLE LIFE WITH KATHERINE ZIT-JONES AND THEIR KIDS....I'LL BET THIS SON OF HIS WHO IS FACING PRISON REALLY WONDERED WHY HIS DAD COULD NOT HAVE GIVEN HIM AND HIS OWN MOTHER THAT LIFE.
