‘Flash Gordon’ Star Sam Jones on His Triumphant, Crazy Comeback Role in ‘Ted’ (Q&A)

He had been sentenced to one year in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy for his involvement in a drug cartel ring. Reportedly, Jones had sold over 10,000 Oxycodone pills which led to his conspiracy charge and eventual prison sentence. Jones had said the reason he became involved in a gang selling drugs due to an effort to try to pay a friend back. He could have been sentenced to anywhere from 5 to 20 years maximum in prison, but made a plea for leniency due to personal hardships. Jones, currently age 33, has starred as the character Pete Ross on “Smallville” from 2001-2004, and then returned in 2008. He was also on “Smallville: Chloe Chronicles” in 2004. Beyond the fictional superhero show which follows the early adventures of Clark Kent, Jones has also appeared on “Bones,” “Arm Wives,” and “Blue Mountain State,” in more recent years.

Sam Jones, Celtics Great and 10-Time Champion, Speaks His Mind

God is Great!! #FAITH!!!” The 28-year-old actor was busted in 2009 after a raid at his home was conducted by DEA agents looking to shut down a drug ring trading in the illegal purchase and distribution of Oxycontin. Jones, currently free on bond, will have to surrender to authorities once it is determined which prison he will be going to serve his sentence. Last week Jones’ ex girlfriend, Playboy model Karissa Shannon, reportedly packed up and moved into the Playboy Mansion with her twin sister Kristina to be back with Hugh Hefner. The Shannon Twins were Hefner’s girlfriends in 2008 and moved out when the 85-year-old playboy founder announced his engagement to his now ‘ Runaway Bride ‘ Crystal Harris, in 2010. They are now back to console Hefner, after Harris left him a few days before the marriage, along with his reported new girlfriend Anna Sophia Berglund.

Former Smallville star Sam Jones III released from prison two months early after being sentenced to a year for conspiracy to sell drugs

Really there were a lot of foolish decisions I made in those early years where I just wish I had listened, that I had surrounded myself with positive mentors rather than just kind of bare knuckle things and do things on my own. Again, I dont blame anybody. I take responsibility for every decision Ive ever made. Its kind of neat now. Were all going to make mistakes but the one thing you dont want to do, you dont want to be redundant.
