Douglas' Girlfriend Pleads Guilty To Drug Charge
Cameron Douglas' girlfriend has pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine, six months after she was arrested on suspicion of smuggling drugs to the troubled actor.
Kelly Sott, 31, was taken into police custody in August (09) after she was caught attempting to hand over the drugs, hidden in an electric toothbrush, to Michael Douglas' 32-year-old son while he was under house arrest at his mother Diandra Douglas' New York apartment.
Security guards subsequently searched Sott's bag and found the toothbrush and 19 tiny bags "containing a brownish substance that appeared to be heroin".
Sott, who claims she was unaware of the drugs, was then taken back to the room she had shared with Douglas at Manhattan's Hotel Gansevoort, where police discovered a stash of heroin, crystal meth and marijuana.
On Monday (22Feb10), Sott pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour charge of possessing methamphetamine, which carries a maximum one year prison sentence, reports TMZ.com.
Douglas was busted in a drugs raid at the Hotel Gansevoort on 3 August (09) and was charged with possessing methamphetamines with intent to distribute.
Reports suggest the It Runs In The Family star had been plotting to move approximately $18,000 (£12,000)-worth of crystal meth from California to New York to sell when an undercover informant alerted the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration of Douglas' involvement.
Douglas pleaded guilty to drug trafficking last month (Jan10) and faces a minimum 10-year prison sentence if convicted.
