In what a judge called Cameron Douglas’s “last chance to make it,” the son of actor Michael Douglas was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison for conspiring to sell crystal meth and for heroin possession.

Cameron was somber as U.S. District Judge Richard Berman announced the sentence. The charges resulted from Cameron’s arrest last summer in a federal drug sting.

Douglas, a 31-year-old former deejay, told the judge that he was sober for the first time in his adult life, and that he was grateful for the chance to get clean.
