Michael Douglas supports son in court - Hollywood Gossips

Michael Douglas supports son in courtMichael Douglas supports son in court

Michael Douglas turned up in court to support his son.

The 68-year-old actor : who is married to Catherine Zeta-Jones : attended his son Cameron's court hearing yesterday (19.12.12) as he appealed against the 54 extra months of prison time that were added to his current five-year sentence for narcotics distribution.

The �Fatal Attraction' star told reporters outside the Manhattan courtroom the case was �on appeal� and he was �clearly' hoping for the best, according to the .

Defence attorney Paul Shechtman told the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, �I'm not suggesting Cameron Douglas shouldn't be punished for this', adding that the sentence was �shockingly long' and �maybe the harshest sentence ever imposed on a federal prisoner for a drug possession offence'.

Cameron's attempt to shorten his sentence comes days after being attacked in prison, where he suffered a broken leg and finger. A bounty of $100 was reportedly put on the 34-year-old actor by a New York mobster as payback for telling police who his drug suppliers were.

The troubled star was only supposed to serve five years instead of 10 after doing a deal with prosecutors, but earned an extra four-and-a-half years for smuggling heroin and a prescription narcotic during his stay at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre.

Cameron : whose mother is Michael's ex-wife Diandra Morrell Douglas : is currently not eligible for release until 2018.
