Michael Douglas' Son Loses Appeal to Shorten Jail Sentence


Cameron Douglas, Michael Douglas


Cameron Douglas, according to the judge, 'has shown himself to be a poor candidate for treatment or leniency.'

Michael Douglas' son, Cameron, asked for leniency for his prison sentence, but his request was thrown out by a judge. The actor's 34-year-old son with ex-wife Diandra Luker is now stuck with the 10-year prison sentence he got from drug charges.

Cameron was initially sentenced to five years in jail after convicted of selling methamphetamine and heroin. He was then granted an additional 4 and 1/2 years in prison for attempting to smuggle heroin into the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York.

When filing Cameron's appeal Last December, attorney Paul Shechtman complained the new sentence his client received was "shockingly long" and "maybe the harshest sentence ever imposed on a federal prisoner for a drug possession offense."

However, a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals argued the sentence was a reasonable one. Judge Gerald Lynch said it's an example of a defendant who "has shown himself to be a poor candidate for treatment or leniency."
