Cameron Douglas is Going to Jail...Don't Drop the Soap

Cameron Douglas was just sentenced to 5 years in the slammer for drug charges.

The judge in the case heard his apology in court and told him that this was his "last chance to make it."

Cameron admitted to dealing methamphetamine and cocaine. He was facing a 10-year term, but we're assuming the judge was pretty lenient by giving him 5 years.

Michael Douglas decided to step up as his father and wrote a letter to the judge asking for some leniency.

The letter read: "I love my son, but I'm not blind to his actions. I don't want to see him break. He is an adult and responsible for his own actions. We do know, however, that genes, family and peer pressure are a strong influence on a substance abuser.

"I have some idea of the pressure of finding your own identity with a famous father. I'm not sure I can comprehend it with two generations to deal with. Cameron grew up a single child in a bad marriage. Cameron found his family in the gang mentality.

"He's sober. I get to witness the wonderful young man he can be. He maintains his spirit, blames no one but himself and recognizes his criminal activity began with his heroin use."

Not only will Cameron serve 5-years, he was also ordered to pay $25,000 in fines and must serve 450 hours of community service.
