Defense Attorney Helps Client Get Another 4.5 Years in Prison

Cameron Douglas, serving 5 years for drug peddling, gets another 4.5 years for jailhouse possession
The New York Daily News by Tracy Connor  -  December 21, 2011

Celebrity deejay convinced a defense lawyer to smuggle anti-anxiety pills in her bra

A judge said Wednesday that Cameron Douglas is the most reckless criminal who’s ever been in his courtroom — and gave him an extra four years in prison to clean up his act.  The drug-addict son of Hollywood powerhouse Michael Douglas is already serving five years in prison for peddling meth and heroin at a trendy Manhattan hotel.  He got an extra 54 months tacked on for repeatedly violating jailhouse rules to get his hands on smack and prescription pills.  “I don’t believe that I have had another case ever...of a defendant who has so recklessly, and flagrantly, and wantonly and criminally acted in as destructive and manipulative a fashion,” Judge Richard Berman said.  Prosecutors had recommended an extra 12 to 18 months, but Berman said they needed to stop coddling Douglas and more than doubled that.  Douglas, 33, had hoped to get off with treatment — blaming his addiction instead of himself for his predicament.  “You see, your honor, I cannot seem to find comfort in my own skin,” he said tearfully. “I feel ashamed. I feel defeated.”  The judge wasn’t in a sympathetic mood, noting that Douglas had lied to investigators about how he got a pill and some heroin while in lockup.  Douglas, the grandson of “Spartacus” legend Kirk Douglas, also convinced a defense lawyer to smuggle anti-anxiety pills to him in her bra.  When Douglas was initially sentenced on the 2009 arrest, the judge warned it was the druggie’s last chance.  He gave Douglas a five-year sentence — half the mandatory minimum — because he agreed to help the feds prosecute his supplier. Douglas testified in that case earlier this year.  Although the deejay has flunked out of rehab a half-dozen times, he insisted Wednesday he’s ready to kick his habit once and for all.  Berman recommended Douglas be transferred to a facility that has drug-treatment and be allowed visits with his famous family.

This lawyer should be sharing a cell with her client.

The only female I ever heard of defending Cameron was Allison Sherry Menkes - a hotshot Fifth Avenue lawyer who knows Senator Libermann

I find it quite odd that the lawyer's name isn't mentioned by any of the media? What the hell is going on?

Who is the lawyer the News is protecting? It must be one of our protected noble elite who rule over us and in return for their loving care of us are exempt from criminal prosecution. Oh thank you Daily News for not harming the reputation of one of our lawyer nobles.

Usually a person who brings drugs into a prison is arrested. Even if it is an attorney. WTF is going on here. It was well known at MCC (the Manhattan federal prison) that Cameron was paying off a lot of people and he was using a BOATLOAD of drugs while he was inside the prison. The guy obviously has a problem and for ANYONE to bring him drugs of any kind is really bad news and that person should be dealt with harshly.

@ 10:48 A.M There is no such title or thing as " noble elite" in the united states so don't insult such countries that have such titles. As the " noble elities" in those countries are not corrupt A Holes. Thanks.

Has this 'Attorney' been disbarred yet? Or has the 1st Dept. DDC already started the coverup and protection process? This Bimbo must have a lot of juice with the !st Dept. DDC.
