    Wow, a movie stars kids pays the piper, whats up with that? Now, lets wait and see if he goes! Was he taken in to custody right away? You and I would have got the max. He got off easy compared to everyone else. IS HE THERE YET?

    Totally shocked the judge gave him 5 years. He deserved it….

    is he in prison or did the judge give him months to be free or leave the country. How come these websites never complete the story?

    “is he in prison or did the judge give him months to be free or leave the country. How come these websites never complete the story?”

    If he was sent home then there is nothing unusual or special about it. That is a very common practice in federal court sentencing. The defendant is given a later date to report for incarceration.

    Cameron’s sentence seems typical to me in light of other cases. We will never know this but he may have provided helpful information to the government and that alone is worth a seriously reduced sentence. He is also a real addict. The old “addict exception” used to get people out of mandatory minimum sentences.

    Also he is on 5 years supervised release (what took the place of parole) which means if he violates release conditions he can end up doing 5 more years. It would all depend on what the violations are, e.g., possession of weed can get him a 6 month hit and possession of cocaine a longer hit. He could very well end up doing 10 years before this is over.

    Now Michael Douglas …think again before opening your hypocrite
    mouth about others and their children. Jerk!

  • lol

    i do feel for the douglas family however i thought justice was blind…the minimum sentence for the average citizen is 10 years!

    He is a drug dealer; he deserves the max time. Spoiled life of wealth and privelege leads to an attitude of being special and untouchable. He is an adult and mommy and daddy and gramps cannot get him out of trouble with simple letters. Maybe they will let him wear Armani suits in prison!!!
