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.

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.
JACK-ASS CELEBRITIES.

I hope he stays the whole 5 yrs. He led his life without a care and trashed someone's house in Los Angeles before he ran off to NY last year. Hopefully he can get clean and get his life together.

Here's Douglas' sentence is likely to go down...
60 months incarceration.
Minus the 8 months he's alredy served.
Minus the statutory goodtime he'll get.
Minus the earned goodtime he'll get for attending the alcohol/drug rehab unit.
He'll be out before he completes the 8 month rehab program.
While he is in, since it is a federal prison, he'll be protected in a nice, comfortable rehab unit completely removed from the general population. He'll have no fear for his safety since he'll be with other men who do not want to get kicked out of the program.



How did this come about? To the general public, a 60 month sentence appears to be some real hard time. The judge knows this. But,the public doesn't know about all the time served and good time Douglas will get to reduce his sentence. So, in effect Douglas' father and mother got their son off with a real light sentence. And, the judge got to look tough on crime.



Let us not forget, were are talking about a very destructive drug user and pusher here. Douglas moved a lot of drugs that ruined a lot of lives. But, he has famous and wealthy parents. The tragedy is, because he'll never do any hard time, it is very likely he will be doing and pushing drugs within a year after his release. You got to love parents and family who care for their children so much, they help them to remain addicted and pushing. Young Douglas, may he rest in peace.

Currently there's no parole in the Federal Court System, under which he was sentenced. So he will have to complete the full 5 year sentence. Federal parole was eliminated some years ago.



Had it not been for his father's legal efforts, he probably would have received the full 10 years. He's lucky he has a rich father.

Just ridiculous. This guy was convicted of major drug stuff and I think has been in trouble before. I guess it's true that if your daddy is M. Douglas and your stepmother Zeta Jones wows some judge, you can get away with anything. What a mismanagement of the justice system.
Doubtful that an ordinary schmuck would have gotten this light a sentence. Way to go, whatever judge and prosecutors. Fame counts.
Oh, and thanks to Katherine for schmoozing the judge.
After all, he's a great older half brother. That evidently balances out the drug charges.
Disgraceful.

Some people get addicted to drugs after taking them for years, and others get addicted by trying it one time. If you are selling drugs because you want to make money, and they never take it themselves, put the sleazes under the jail. If you are selling drugs, just to be able to feed your own addicion, then that is a different story. Why in this country do we put people who are addicted to drugs into jail, instead of FORCED rehab. We are wasting taxpayer dollars. Putting them in jail, just introduces them to harder drugs, and they get educated in hiding it better, and how to cheat the system. This is a the last thing an addict needs.
