'Smallville's Sam Jones Gets Year In Prison Over Drug Deal

Sam Jones III, who played Clark Kent's best friend Pete Ross for the first three seasons of 'Smallville', has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Jones has received one year in federal prison for conspiring to sell more than 10,000 doses of the prescription painkiller Oxycodone.

The prosecutor was pushing for the actor to serve five years but the judge showed leniency as a result of the guilty plea and his role in the drug deal.

Sam Jones has also been ordered to three years of probation once he's completed his prison sentence.

The 28-year-old actor was arrested during a raid of his Canoga, California home in 2009 after DEA agents discovered the illegal stash as well as evidence that Jones was part of a drug ring known as 'the Hollywood Connection'.

As of right now, the actor is free on bond until it's determined where he will serve when he will be required to surrender to authorities.
