A judge called the imprisoned son of actor Michael Douglas reckless and irresponsible as he nearly doubled his prison sentence yesterday from five years to 9½ years for repeated drug offenses. Southern District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan cited Cameron Douglas’ “history of reckless behavior” as he imposed a new punishment that was more than double what prosecutors were seeking for Mr. Douglas’ guilty plea to drug charges that arose from his successful efforts to smuggle drugs into prison. The judge added 4½ years to the five-year term he gave Mr. Douglas last year for his guilty plea in connection with his sales of methamphetamine in July 2009 from a high-end Manhattan hotel. The judge said he had never had a case before in which a defendant “has so recklessly, wantonly, flagrantly and criminally acted in such a destructive and manipulative fashion as Cameron Douglas has.”
