Yesterday in a Manhattan courthouse, Michael Douglas lent his presence to the proceedings in an appeal to get his son's 4 1/2 year sentence for smuggling drugs into a jail reduced
. The case is on appeal and as I told you earlier this week, the 4 1/2 years for the crime is the longest ever handed down and that usually no jail time is given for the crime. So, Cameron is appealing by saying it is harsh and now it is up to the appeals court. I'm not sure what Michael can do except look all celebrity like there in the front row and show the panel that Cameron has his support.
