Sam JonesSam Jones III, known for his work on 'Smallville' and 'ER' has been sentenced to a year in prison for his role in a drug ring.

TMZ is reporting that Jones plead guilty to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 pills of Oxycodone, a painkiller, and was sentenced to 366 days in prison, even though the prosecutor wanted him to serve 5 years.

It is reported that before sentencing Jones pleaded with the judge to show mercy explaining that he had lost everything including his dog, car and his acting role in 'Blue Mountain State' due to the drugs charges.

The judge showed leniency and said he was cutting the actor a break due to his "minor" role in the drug deal.

E! Online is reporting that in addition to the jail term, the judge has ordered that Jones to serve three years supervised probation once he's released from a jail.

No word yet on whether his role will be recast.
