'Smallville' Star -- Court-Ordered Champagne Shower

3/13/2011 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He's out on bail facing 20 years in prison -- but ex-"Smallville" actor Sam Jones still needs to work ... which is why an LA court granted him permission to party in Mexico this week with his Playmate GF.

Sources close to the actor tell TMZ, Sam was paid to appear at Dady'O Nightclub in Cancun Thursday night -- alongside his GF Karissa Shannon and her twin sis Kristina -- and in Hollywood ... that counts as a real job.

But Sam couldn't just hop a plane and fly south of the border ... the guy is awaiting sentencing for his massive drug trafficking case -- scheduled for June -- and technically isn't allowed to leave the country.

So he did what any other actor in his position would do -- he filed papers with the federal court in L.A. asking for a special dispensation ... on the grounds that he needed the money ... and the court actually GRANTED it.

FYI -- the photo above is from the actual event. Celebrity justice at its finest.

It's a shame that bimbo Karissa got hooked up with a dope-dealing wanna be.

Who ever said you had to have any brains to be a playmate?

Oh great, the twins found another way of inking money out of someone. It's bad enough they killed the ratings for Girls Next Door. Can't they just go away?

OK, I see no issue with letting him work and make money, but letting him out of the country? Hello - he has already been convicted - when he returns, no maybe, he is going to jail. What are the odds of his returning? Guess it depends on whether he been sampling his own product.

If that was me I don't know if I would return so I could go to jail for 20 years, being some one's bitch or being passed around since he will be a novelity in prison. I KNOW I WOULD NOT BE BACK FOR THAT KIND OF LIFE IN DA BIG HOUSE.

Yeah, and would any regular, blue-collar working stiff be granted permission to leave the country for a money-making opportunity if he was facing 20 years in prison for drug-trafficking! Absolutely, not!!!! Which tells me that his criminal case is already being swept under the rug somewhere by some weak, hypocritical, unjust judge!

If I was facing 10yrs in prison, I'd do the same damn thing.
Except I wouldn't come back.
And I wouldn't stay in Mexico.
