Michael Douglas

has praised the judge overseeing his son's court case for handing a five-year prison sentence - calling the punishment "adequate". The 31 year old faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years behind bars after he pleaded guilty to one count of methamphetamine possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance and one count of possession of cocaine in January.

Douglas, along with his wife and his father Kirk, wrote letters to Federal Judge Richard Berman, urging him to be lenient. Their pleas appeared to have been answered when Cameron was handed a five-year sentence last month, and Douglas is convinced Judge Berman made the right decision.

He tells America's "TODAY" show, "Well, I think any person can understand writing letters for leniency. Everybody does it. I think the court recognized his drug addiction as well as the crime that he committed. It's an adequate, I think, amount of time for anybody to spend in jail."
