London: Troubled over his son’s conviction in a drug pedalling case, Michael Douglas has found comfort in letters of support written by fellow parents.

The actor’s son Cameron was awarded a five-year prison sentence last month after the 31-year-old pleaded guilty to charges of methamphetamine possession with the intent to distribute and one count of cocaine possession.

And now Michael is flooded with mail from parents who’ve gone through similar experiences.

"I have to say, the letters of support from the numbers of parents out there who have basically already lost sons or daughters, and really encouraging me about the second chance that Cameron has, has made some difference," a news daily quoted Michael, as saying.
