*Sam Jones III, best known for playing Pete Ross on the first three seasons of the television series “Smallville,” is facing up to 20 years in jail after pleading guilty in Los Angeles federal court to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 oxycodone pills, reports E! Online.
The 27-year-old actor was busted at his Canoga Park, Calif. home last year for allegedly trying to sling the painkiller otherwise known as “hillbilly heroin.”
On Thursday (Dec. 16), he pleaded guilty as a co-conspirator 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.
