Cameron Douglas Gets Five Years in Prison

by at . Comments

Michael Douglas' son Cameron, who was nabbed last year in a major drug dealing operation, was sentenced to five years in prison this afternoon in NYC.

Cameron Douglas, along with his father and his mother Diandra, was present in federal court in Manhattan today when the judge fired off the sentence.

Michael asked for leniency for his son ... and didn't really get it.

Along with the prison time, Cameron was ordered to pay $25,000 in fines and must serve 450 hours of community service as a result of his guilty plea.

Once he's out of jail Cameron is also required to spend an additional five years in a supervised release program. They certainly didn't go easy on him.

Last year, Cameron Douglas was caught in a federal sting operation with large amounts of methamphetamine and cocaine with intent to distribute.

Hopefully prison straightens this guy out.
