mdsJan 30, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Hollywood star Michael Douglas was seen attending a Manhattan court hearing yesterday and he was there to provide moral support to his son Cameron Douglas. The latter got charged with drug possession last year. The son of the star pleaded guilty and he can be subjected to life imprisonment. He is the senior most son of the actor. Michael Douglas appeared visibly distressed and had a worried look on his face. He wore a black leather jacket. He was not in a mood to talk on the issue and deliberately kept mum when he was approached by the reporters.

His son was taken into custody in July 2009 and he was not granted bail after the arrest as per the reports. This has not gone down well with the veteran actor, as anyone can assume. Cameron Douglas, now in his early 30s admitted that he was involved in drug distribution, on Wednesday. Generally, this is a crime that carries a 10 year prison term as punishment and sometimes the consequences can be more drastic. The fate of the accused son of the actor will be revealed in April.

The Hollywood actor regretted that he failed to bring up his son properly as he was too involved with his career. Incidentally Cameron Douglas is the son of Diandra Douglas who was the first wife of Michael Douglas. They split in 2000 after which the actor got married to actress Catherine Zeta Jones. The star also expressed fears that spending time with hardened criminals in jail can be harsh and bad for his son.
