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.

"50. It will make a better man of him & get him off the drugs....." - Yeah, because we all know you can't get drugs in federal prison. Especially when daddy is rich money isn't an issue.

It is just comical that over four years in Federal prison is considered "getting off easy" here. Jesus, folks, maybe if you're from the ghetto and everyone of your relatives has served time, and has coached you on how to get along in prison. But Cameron Douglas is not ghetto. He's a drug addict from a really rich and famous family. Guess what? He does not come from a long line of felons! And what money probably did for him was buy lawyers who were smart enough to convince him to "cooperate" if our attorney friend Gary is correct. Why don't some of you consider spending four years in prison, and then tell me that you think you got off easy because you didn't get TEN years! Yeah, right!

The paps are awful in this video. The things they say - just to get a reaction, which Michael doesn't do. How can they do this to others?

Yet, another celebs bratty kid in major trouble AGAIN. Like
Redmond and the list goes on and on and on. They are either
in prison, or like Corey and Dana, dead. What a waste of life!
Cant WAIT to see how fu====d up Kate Gosslins 8 brats will be
in 10 years. Their mom is not exactly a celebrity, but she
THINKS she is. They are all going to end up in trouble, or
HATING their mother when the see that she pimp'd them out
so she would not have to actually get a job. I don't think
they are gonna think much of John either, but then, no-one does!

Dear Diary,
Just got to my new home for the next five years. Not much for decor, and the uniform makes me look like a psychotic delivery driver. But all in all, not a bad first day.



P.S.
My bung hole is sore! But at least I am not a douche bag lawyer (i.e. Gary)! I may be a Prison Bitch, but at least I've got some self-respect!
