Only 2 things to say! He is going to do some big time prison regardless of his name. Second, why on earth does someone with the Hollywood connections Dad and Gramps have, need to resort to this for? Probably could have jobs in front of and behind the cameras any day of the week.

NEW YORK – Michael Douglas' son has pleaded guilty to trafficking large quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine.

Cameron Douglas entered the plea Wednesday in Manhattan federal court. The son of the Oscar-winning actor was arrested in July 2009 at a Manhattan hotel.

He was originally put under house arrest. But he was thrown in jail after his girlfriend allegedly tried to smuggle heroin to him in an electric toothbrush.

Douglas has acted in movies including 2003's "It Runs in the Family," starring his father and grandfather, Kirk Douglas.

He faces a minimum 10 years in prison.

In a tooth brush? how could you put drugs in an electric tooth brush....who knows.

Greeney, The FBI infiltrated one of the reservations in my area (Hertle Wsiconsin), piled up a ton of distribution charges and gave some people 20 years plus....however some of them who got 10 years madatory no chance for early release are still making deals. Don't get it. How and the heck does that work? You can get 10 yrs and serve 2? I don't know specific laws in NY but I'm guessing with Michael Douglas as his father, this kid is not going to have much for prison time.

No doubt when your family has clout, you have a good chance to get out! But on the other side of the coin, not always. OJ did not get out for his appeals. The kid prosocuted for the cops murder that stared in "A Bronx Tale" (Brancado I think is his last name) is gone for a while. Tom Sizmore. Robert Downey Jr. served his time. Wesley Snipes tax evasion. Next big one may be Nicolas Cage. That said, there is no doubt the scales of justice are not balanced too well. When you fame and fortune the forture takes you further. When you have forture alone you end up broke. When you have fame with no fortune-lawyers line up for free. When you are nobody and broke--nobody cares public defender loaded with cases just want to plea your case out. In the end the lawyers take it all to the bank.

Little off topic but what did Nicholas Cage do? 😕 That is one of my favorite if not favorite actors. Never read anything.

Here I thought for sure this thread was created by SWR 😉

You are right, public defenders are junk if you are dealing with such a severe offense.
They get overloaded.

Nicolos Cage is claiming his business agents ripped him off, which was Wesley Snipes excuse. Nicolos has a huge IRS debt of over $6M, and I think failed to file or omitted income as well, blaming everyone else. I have not herd of any criminal charges yet. Yesterday one of his forclosed homes in Vegas was actioned off. Hard for the average Joe to feel real sorry for people who make $20M for a few months work treated like royalty, than can't even withhold enough to cover their taxes.
