James Cameron Hollywood now in Vista jail
A young man who admitted heroin possession and marijuana for sale was taken into custody in San Diego County last week.
James Cameron Hollywood, 28, was ordered into custody September 18, 2012 by Superior Court Judge K. Michael Kirkman.
Hollywood, who has prior drug convictions in Orange County according to court documents, signed a plea deal last month.
In the plea deal paperwork, in exchange for admitting two felonies, five other felony counts against Hollywood were dropped — these included possession of Psilocybin mushrooms and cocaine and methamphetamine, with allegations of prior convictions for some of the drug offenses.
Judge Kirkman ordered Hollywood to serve 365 days, with 16 days credit for time already spent in drug treatment since the plea deal was signed August 20.
San Diego County Sheriff’s online jail records show Hollywood’s expected release date as February 8, 2013.
The judge also ordered James Cameron Hollywood to pay $9,824 in fines and fees, this to be paid at $50 per month, commencing after his release from custody. Simple math calculates the amount would be paid off after 16 years.
