    Sam Jones III just went from Smallville to guilty town.

    The actor, best known as Clark Kent's former buddy on the long-running Superman series, today pleaded guilty in Los Angeles federal court to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 oxycodone pills.

    So how did he go from small-screen good guy to a drug trafficker?

    Jones, 27, was busted at his Canoga Park, Calif., home last year for allegedly trying to sling the painkiller otherwise known as "hillbilly heroin."

    Today, he pleaded guilty as a coconspirator in the drug ring, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

    The feds arrested him after determining he was the "Hollywood connection" involved in the ring's illegal purchasing and distributing the drugs.

    Jones now faces up to 20 years behind bars when he is sentenced in June.

    So...do we have any thoughts about our Smallville friend? To be honest I don't care. It's unfortunate he's in this situation, but he's been in trouble before and had many chances to clean up his act. I don't like the character, or the actor it seems. What a very merry christmas he must be having!

    That's a surprise if I've ever seen it. I'm not even on the second season of Smallville yet, and that totally surprises me. Who did the actor portray? Also what happened to his character?

    Not a good christmas he will have since he's sentenced up to 20 years behind bars.

      Well, that sucks for him... 20 years is a long time. If he got involved in the drug traffic, though, he has no one to blame but himself!

        It's really sad, especially since i just saw him on the tv show on spike tv called "Blue Mountain State", Apparently he was one of the leads. Either way if you cant do the time then dont do the crime.

          Weird - this wasn't picked up by any other news services and Sam doesn't seem overly concerned about anything on his Twitter account.

          I do know that he was arrested for this last year. Likely he had to drop out of Blue Mountain State because he couldn't leave the country.

          I don't know what's up w/ that 6 month lag in the sentencing - that just sounds wrong.

              YIKES... Wow, I remember my hubby saying he was in trouble for drug stuff, but I didn't know he got arrested and sentenced to 20 years in prison!! That is crazy, and sad.

                Any of the info I've ever read about him online (other than facts like birthday and resume and stuff) have been negative things...guess people aren't always what they appear like on TV.
