Michael Douglas' Son Gets 5 Years in Prison

4/20/2010 4:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Douglas' son Cameron was just sentenced to five years in prison -- for his role in a major drug dealing operation.


Cameron Douglas -- along with his father and his mother Diandra -- was present in federal court in Manhattan today when the judge fired off the sentence.

Along with the prison time, Cameron was ordered to pay $25,000 in fines and must serve 450 hours of community service. Once he's out of the joint, Cameron is also required to spend an additional 5 years in a supervised release program.

Back in January, Cameron pled guilty to dealing large amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine.

I thought the MANDATORY sentence was 10 years. Hmm, must be great to have parents with money. I read his father's letter to the judge. My response to that is:
Dear Mr. Douglas,
Your son's background isnt an excuse. Please see everybody from the 'hood as Exhibits A-Z.
Thanks!

Lets keep it real, if this was a black guy, he would of got 40 years, the colour of his skin and his parents and step mom, paying off the judge. It's a disgrace.

He should have jumped bail and fled to a country with no extradition treaty with the USA. Jail is especially hard for rich kids. Don't believe all that talk about "Bubba" and "Dropping the soap", that's a lot of urban mythology. But being deprived of his lifestyle and liberty is going to really suck. As a human being, he's a complete mess. I'll bet there's not a day that goes by that his mother doesn't wish that she would have gotten an abortion instead of this fetid discharge from her swollen uterus. Some rich kids go to Harvard, some rich kids go to federal prison. It boils down to character.

"Cameron received a reduced sentence due to "Cooperation" and not because of his famous family. In other words, he probably ratted some other people out or at least gave the US Attorney's Office info that helped in the prosecution of other individuals."



Cameron 101: Make sure to rat out your drug friends, and get a reduced sentence. Now that's going hollywood.

It's not enough. Who knows how many lives he's ruined running meth and all he gets is 5 stinking years? Must be nice to be a celeb's son. Daddy Michael should stop trying to get him off and instead demand he take responsibility for himself and his conduct. It'd be a refreshing change.

Who cares TMZ? What does this have to do with Kate Gosselin!?



And all of you saying he'll be out in no time, that he got preferential treatment due to his father, etc. are idiots. #31 Gary, the attorney above, summed it up nicely. The rest of you don't know **** and are talking out your asses.

He got off easy. He would not have gotten such a soft sentence had he been anybody else. I love Michael Douglas, but Cameron being his son probably played a part in why he got off so easy. Hopefully this will give him time to reflect on how blessed he is to have the family that he has in the first place. I hope that he can get off the drugs and go on to live the life he has the possibility to live. Michael's brother died in 2004 from a drug overdose, so I'm pretty sure that everybody knows the stakes are very high.

"Minimum sentence is 10 years for selling dope? this bum will get out in 1 year. If it were a black man doing the same thing- 10-20 years! Outrageous. Justice is only for the rich." - Posted at 1:23 PM on Apr 20, 2010 by Zohar



Blah, blah, blah! Life ain't fair, get over it. Basically what your saying is blacks have a hell of a lot more incentive to not become drug dealing s***. That's supposed to be a bad thing!? LOL Guess what? Drug dealing s*** have a 100% greater chance of going to prison then everyone else. You don't want to go to prison for 10-20 years don't deal drugs.

Well his father's money didn't keep him out of jail. You or I would have gotten 20. Watch he will be out for good behavior in the near future.
