A judge sentenced actor Michael Douglas' son Cameron to five years in prison Tuesday for selling cocaine and methamphetamine.
Cameron Douglas, 31, was arrested July 2009 at the Manhattan Club in New York City and later pleaded guilty to drug charges.
“I apologize to the court for my decisions and actions that put me in front of you today," Cameron Douglas told the judge.
He added that he wants to take the right path, "the true right path."
Cameron Douglas, wearing a suit and his voice trembling when he spoke, looked at his parents Michael Douglas and Diandra Douglas throughout his time in court.
"I ask for an opportunity to be a role model to my younger brothers and sisters," Cameron Douglas said.
His father, actor Michael Douglas, cried as his son addressed the court.
