Michael Douglas’s Son Pleads Guilty to Smuggling Cocaine and Heroin into Jail

South Carolina Drug Crime Attorneys

The New York Daily News reported in October Actor Michael Douglas’ troubled son pleaded guilty to yet another dru

g charge – this time confessing he managed to obtain drugs while in prison.

Cameron Douglas, 32, admitted he smuggled and possessed cocaine and heroin while in one of the most secure federal lockups in the nation.

Cameron’s father, who did not make it to court, issued a statement supporting him.

“Cameron accepts full responsibility for his conduct, which involved a small user-quantity of drugs,” Michael Douglas said.

“While he has made much progress, he is still not cured. Most people and their families are able to address this illness privately and outside of the spotlight. Unfortunately this has not been possible here – for reasons completely outside of his control. He thanks those that have rooted for his recovery and looks forward to the day when he will not disappoint.”

Authorities said they found the drugs in Cameron’s cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan on October 17th. Officials say Cameron had been cooperating with the feds in a drug investigation.

Prosecutors told a judge the recent discovery – along with Douglas’s admission that he also had drugs while in a federal prison in Pennsylvania – has sparked two investigations.

Douglas, who is already serving five-years for dealing methamphetamines, had previously been caught twice smuggling heroin inside an electronic toothbrush while on house arrest.

He also admitted while testifying earlier this month against California drug dealer David Escalera, that he convinced a lawyer to smuggle prescription drugs into prison for him.
