Cameron Douglas, the 31 year old actor son of Michael Douglas was sentenced to five years in prison today, for his dealing in both methamphetamine and cocaine. The young actor, reportedly played a major role in the sale of both illegal drugs. Earlier this year, while under house arrest the actor fell into more legal problems after his girlfriend tried to smuggle heroin to him hidden inside an electric toothbrush.
Michael Douglas, the actor's father, wrote a heartfelt letter to the sentencing judge, which might have helped somewhat because the young actor actually faced a 10 year to life sentence because of the major amount of drugs involved. It was about half a pound of meth that was seized by federal drug enforcement agents.
Cameron Douglas has starred in four films so far. Now that acting career looks on ice for a few years.
