Michael Douglas' incarcerated son CAMERON is set to avoid testifying against his alleged drug suppliers - the accused men have been offered a plea deal, according to a new report.
Cameron Douglas was sentenced to five years behind bars in New York last month (Apr10) after he admitted charges of methamphetamine possession with intent to distribute, and one count of cocaine possession.
The 31 year old's alleged suppliers, brothers David and Eduardo Escalera, both face life in prison for allegedly providing "large amounts" of methamphetamine to Douglas and others.
But prosecutors revealed on Wednesday (08Sep10) the pair has been offered plea deals that could be wrapped within 30 days, and if the brothers accept the terms, Douglas will not be required to testify against them in Manhattan federal court, reports the New York Post.
Further details regarding the plea deals had not been released as WENN went to press.
The news comes at a time of personal turmoil for the jailed actor, whose famous dad recently revealed he is battling throat cancer.
