Sizemore Sentenced To Jail For Drug-Related Charge

Troubled actor TOM SIZEMORE has been sentenced to just under two years in jail for repeatedly failing drug tests while on probation.

The BLACK HAWK DOWN star, 43, failed seven drug tests, admitted methamphetamine use twice and failed to show up for further testing while on probation for a 2003 domestic violence conviction involving his ex-girlfriend, former Hollywood madam HEIDI FLEISS, said prosecutor SEAN CARNEY last month (FEB05).

Yesterday (24MAR05), Sizemore sobbed, gestured and begged for another chance as he delivered a rambling speech before being sentenced by Superior Court Judge ANTONIO BARRETO JR.

Sizemore pleaded with the judge for leniency, saying he had broken his parents' hearts and felt like a 12-year-old child.

He said, "(I am) engaged in a struggle right now to regain the better part of who I am... I never thought I had this disease. I assure, Your Honour, that I'm not acting now. I'm not acting, I'm begging, I'm beseeching you. I can't imagine my future without performing."

Later in the day, Sizemore was also sentenced to an additional inpatient drug treatment in a separate felony methamphetamine case.

Despite the sentencing, Sizemore is allowed to remain free while he appeals a domestic violence conviction.
