A man accused of supplying Michael Douglas’ actor son Cameron with illegal substances has questioned the jailed star’s credibility as a witness due to his years of drug abuse.
Cameron Douglas is currently serving a five-year sentence in New York after admitting to charges of methamphetamine possession with intent to distribute, and one count of cocaine possession, stemming from his arrest in 2009.

Illegal Mexican immigrants David and Eduardo Escalera are accused of providing Douglas, 32, and others with drugs and both face life in prison when they go on trial in October, when the troubled actor is expected to take the stand as the prosecution’s key witness.

But Eduardo wants experts to analyze the reports from Douglas’ psychiatrists to determine “the effect of substance abuse” on his memory and he has filed legal papers asking for access to the prisoner’s medical records ahead of the trial.
