Michael Douglas' son Cameron Douglas isn't eligible for parole until 2018, but will that be too late?
According to a source, the convicted drug dealer had a bounty put on him by a New York mobster after Cameron gave evidence implicating him at his trial.
And now it seems someone has decided to cash in, as Cameron has suffered some pretty serious injuries.

A flock of addiction experts have lent their support to Oscar winner Michael Douglas' son Cameron Douglas and have promised to help his family fight the 54-month prison sentence he is currently serving.
The 33-year-old is in the midst of a five year jail sentence for drug distribution and

The legal troubles of Michael Douglas' son Cameron Douglas are just never-ending.
It's more bad news for Cameron as the troubled 33-year-old was sentenced to 4 1/2 more years in prison for drug possession WHILE he was in prison, serving his original sentencing of five years.
The actor's son has had a very public addiction to meth, cocaine and heroin, which have landed him in jail in 1999 and in 2007.
Even though his father, as well as his stepmom Catherine Zeta-Jones and grandfather Kirk Douglas have sent letters asking for leniency, Cameron was still given a pretty long sentence.
While in court, Cameron read a letter to the New York federal Judge Richard Berman, saying this:

Michael Douglas' son Cameron Douglas has pleaded guilty to a new drug charged after already getting sentenced to five years in prison this past April.
Cameron pleaded guilty to possession and dealing meth and cocaine, but he's now entered a new plea bargain that will give him another year in jail after he admitted to getting drugs in prison while serving his current sentence.
Illegal substances were found in his cell and sources say that he could have had them all the way back to May to just this last week.
Earlier this year when he was in court, Cameron said:
"I apologize to my family and my loved ones for putting them through this nightmare of my making. I ask for an opportunity to be a role model to my younger brothers and sisters."
What a horrible scenario this has turned out to be. We really do feel for Cameron's family and we just want to see him clean and sober. It doesn't look jail is the most healthiest place for him either, but he is ordered to take drug education classes when he IS released from jail. Hopefully, he'll be able to learn something from them.

The jailed son of Oscar-winner Michael Douglas and grandson of Kurt Douglas is finding new ways to tarnish the Douglas name!!
As part of his plea deal for early release, Cameron Douglas testified against one of his alleged drug suppliers, Eduardo and David Escalera.
While on the stand, the former smack, meth and crack-addict told the NYC court some rather odd stories about his drug dealing past.
One amazing, and seemingly off-topic story Cameron told was

Hopefully Michael can keep his son safe after this!
Feds want Michael Douglas' son Cameron to testify against his alleged drug suppliers, David and Eduardo Escalera.
Here's what the court papers had to say:
"CW-1 is expected to testify that the Escalera brothers often dealt narcotics, including crystal meth, in nightclubs."
Court Witness 1 (CW-1) is of course Cameron Douglas, and feds want him to speak up about "buying 'distribution quantities of meth' and 'multiple kilograms of cocaine.' "
We just hope nobody tries to hurt Cameron if/when he goes through with this.
Seriously scary stuff!

Despite suffering from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation, Michael Douglas traveled three hours from Manhattan to Pennsylvania to visit his son Cameron, who is serving a five year prison sentence.
"Michael is still visiting with Cameron," said the actor's publicist Allen Burry. "He's not going everyday and not as often as he would like, but he is still visiting with him."
The two met in the visitors' room of the Lewisburg Federal Prison Camp and followed the very strict inmate rules like everyone else.
We know they've had tough times, but we're glad Michael and Cameron are rekindling their relationship!
