American actor, Cameron Douglas, will be getting four and a half more years in prison, on top of what he already has receive in the past. Douglas does admit he has been taught a lesson, but he did come with a huge price.
Douglas is the thirty three year old son of veteran actor Michael Douglas, and it was just last April when he had been sentenced to five years in prison, after he had been caught dealing a large amount of crystal meth.
Now on Wednesday added were the new time he just received, and also a four thousand dollar fine. The offense, again, was drug possession, behind bars. The sentence was more than twice what prosecutors had asked for.
The judge, obviously very annoyed at the situation, told Cameron that he had “blown the biggest opportunity of his life,” according to The New York Post.
Douglas said he was
“saturated in my own shame and penitence” and begged for
“the opportunity to build myself and gain the tools I need to shape my future.”
”I feel so strongly, for the first time in my life, that I am truly ripe for positive reform and real achievement,” Cameron said in a Manhattan federal court filing.
Cameron was previously arrested in 1999 and 2007 for drug possession, and perhaps for that reason, the judge was less than sympathetic this morning.
