New York (ANI): In an attempt to save drug-dealer Cameron Douglas from harsh prison sentence, step-mom Catherine Zeta-Jones has sent a letter to the Manhattan judge Richard Berman. Zeta-Jones wrote in her letter that Cameron deserved placement in a treatment facility - not a long prison term, reports the New York Daily News.
"I use the word 'disease'. My stepson is a caring, considerate worthy human being, but never the less, the disease that for years he has tried to combat, did take over again," she wrote. "What is wrong is wrong, but may all these positive attributes prevail, so that a facility that he is positioned in will help rehabilitate him," she added
Cameron"s grandfather Kirk Douglas wrote in his letter: "I remember when he played a part in the movie with me and Michael. He was a natural. We were so proud. I was shocked when he got in such a mess. I am convinced that Cameron could be a fine actor and a person that cares for others. I hope I can see that happen before I die. I love Cameron."
Cameron, who has pleaded guilty for drug dealing, will be sentenced on April 27.
