'Smallville' Actor Dodges Bullet -- Gets 1 Year in Prison

6/22/2011 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sam Jones just caught a HUGE break -- dude was sentenced to spend 366 days in federal prison for his hand in a MAJOR drug ring ... even though the feds wanted him to serve 5 years.

Jones -- who recently pled guilty to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 pills of Oxycodone -- was hit with the sentence this morning in federal court in Los Angeles.

Before sentencing, we're told Jones begged the judge for mercy ... explaining he'd lost everything -- including his dog, his car, and his acting gig on "Blue Mountain State" -- due to the drug charges.

The judge apparently bought it ... and said he was cutting the actor a break due to his "minor" role in the drug deal.

Jones will have to surrender to authorities once it's determined which prison he'll call home for a year.

You only serve a full year if the judge sentences you to a year (365 days). If the Judge sentences you to a year and a day you can get early release for good behavior.

He will serve 5-6 months maximum.

He is very lucky.

He will be out in less than a year and resume acting and making a ton of dough. That is what celebrity justice is all about.

Where's Al Sharpton now. What's the matter AL, you can't claim the white man is holding down the black man can you?

366 days ??? What a joke when you consider how many lives Sam Jones has had an effect on with his drug trafficking. Wonder how many people are no longer with us because of SAM JONES?

I wonder how many INNOCENT PEOPLE have been robbed so that they can buy these pills? I wonder if any innocent people have been killed, such as an traffic accident because SAM JONES was part of the distribution of these pills.

366 days, what a joke.

How does this work, your selling that amount of drugs and you get that little bit of time?
Is it all about who is your lawyer and what you spend to defend your charges======= justice for the ones that have money.

I knew this had to be in the CA judicial system. Another "star struck" judge. I'm sure if it was you or I we would get the full 5 years plus probation
