An actor who appeared on the first three seasons of “Smallville” has received a prison sentence following a drug conviction, E! Online reported.
Sam Jones III, who played Clark Kent’s best friend on the show, was sentenced to a year in prison, the story says.
Jones was busted in a 2009 raid at his Canoga Park, Calif., home by DEA agents searching for a drug ring managing the purchase and distribution of oxycodone, the story says. Jones was convicted in December of being a co-conspirator in the ring, called the "Hollywood Connection," the piece notes.
Oxycodone, also sold under the trade name OxyContin, is sometimes referred to by its street name “hillbilly heroin.”
