Cameron Douglas narrowly escapes being sent back to federal prison after probation officer ‘finds marijuana in his system’ – but his lawyer says he’s dealing with PTSD after being menaced by jail gangs

  • Cameron Douglas was found with the drugs in his system in April, a court heard
  • He was out on bail after his 2010 conviction for selling meth and heroin
  • Parole officers successfully argued he should be given a second chance
  • His lawyer said he was getting help after traumatic beating by a prison gang
  • He was targeted for turning over his drug suppliers to cops to halve his sentence
  • In 2010 his five-year sentence was extended after he was found with drugs in jail

Cameron Douglas, son of Michael Douglas, was almost sent back to federal prison after a probation officer said he’d been found with marijuana in his system.

Douglas, 38, was sentenced to five years in prison in 2010 for selling drugs, but that was extended in 2011 when he was found with drugs inside prison. He was released on parole in March.

And now he’s in trouble again, having allegedly been caught with marijuana in his system on April 10, a court has heard, according to Page Six.

Douglas underwent three tests for marijuana after being accused of trying to manipulate results by a lab technician, and the results were positive.

However, his parole officers are now asking Manhattan federal judge Richard Berman to show leniency for the beleaguered minor celeb.

‘We would like to provide Mr. Douglas an opportunity to be in the community to see how he responds to setbacks,’ one of them said.

Douglas’ lawyer, Ben Brafman, maintains that his client has remained sober and that ‘there is no issue’ despite the parole officers’ claims.

However, he also asked the judge for clemency, saying that Douglas has suffered PTSD ever since he was sent to prison for conspiracy to distribute narcotics after being found dealing heroin and meth from a hotel room.

He’d turned in his suppliers, David and Eduardo Escalera, in his trial hearing in order to have his sentence reduced from ten years to five years.

That led to him becoming a target for a crime family boss, who put a bounty of just $100 on Douglas’ head – resulting in other prisoners breaking one of his fingers and a leg.

‘His period of imprisonment was horrific,’ Brafman said.

The judge agreed with the parole officers, and instead of sending him back to prison he said Douglas should be subject to more frequent drug tests and searches. He may be tested twice a week.

In 2010, Douglas’ lawyer, Jennifer Ridha, was busted after she smuggled pills into prison for him. She later claimed in her book Criminal That I Am that she had fallen in love with him.

Douglas received four more years in prison on top of his five-year sentence.

Charges against Ridha were ultimately dropped, but she lost her job.

Speaking publicly about his son, Michael Douglas said in 2010 that he thought prison might be a ‘blessing in disguise’.

He assumed blame for ‘being a bad father’ but said that without prison intervention, Cameron ‘was going to be dead or somebody was gonna kill him. I think he has a chance to start a new life, and he knows that.’

I guess that prison beat down, a broken leg and finger wasn’t so bad after all, otherwise he wouldn’t be violating parole only 3 months after his release. Her didn’t learn his lesson, send him back!

I hope the country comes to its senses and realizes that criminalizing the medicinal and recreational use of marijuana is a complete and total dead end. Legalize it, tax it, and let everyone get on with their lives.

If drugs cause harm, then its obvious we must harm people who do drugs in order to prevent them from harming themselves. My logic is flawless, you have no arguments against it.

He needs to touch nothing – no alcohol or drugs of any kind – and man up before he gets sent back to prison for a long long time
