Sam Jones III

‘Smallville’ actor Sam Jones III, was sentenced to one year in prison for his role in a drug ring. Federal agents raided Jones’ house back in 2009.

Jones plead guilty to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 pills of popular prescription drugs, and was sentenced to 366 days in prison. Jones may not have to serve the full year if he gets credit for good behavior.

Jones was also sentenced to 3 years unsupervised probation after he’s released from prison. Jones tweeted a message after leaving the courthouse, “Just got out of court! God is Great!! #FAITH!!!”

Prosecutors sought out a five year sentence, but the judge was lenient due to Jones’ ‘minor’ role in the drug cartel.

It is also reported that before sentencing Jones pleaded with the judge to show mercy explaining that he had lost everything including his dog, car and his acting role in ‘Blue Mountain State’ due to the drugs charges.
