The bad news has hit the media, and it is not good for Cameron Douglas and his father Michael Douglas.

The 33-year-old member of the famous and loved Hollywood family has been sentenced to four and a half more years in jail this week. The reason for the added jail time is that Cameron was found to be in possession of drugs while in jail. The added time is on top of the five years that he is already in the midst of serving. Cameron was once an aspiring actor, but this most recent sentence is just another blip in a long stretch of jail time for the young actor. Cameron’s addiction to methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin went public years ago. Those addictions landed him in jail in 1999 and 2007.

During the original sentencing for Cameron, letters were written and submitted by Michael, his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, and grandfather Kirk that asked the court for leniency.

A more personal, heartfelt letter was written by Cameron to Judge Richard Berman in New York in preparation for the new drug possession charges being brought against him. Cameron reportedly wrote that he felt “saturated in my own shame and penitence” and that the addiction to drugs have “robbed me of a life that should of and could have been rife in promise.”
