NEW YORK — The judge who sentenced Michael Douglas’ son to nearly a decade in prison says he can move to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman told Cameron Douglas Wednesday in a court hearing that he can move out of New York and authorities will oversee his continuing treatment for addictions in California.

Attorney Ben Brafman says Douglas’ girlfriend is expected to deliver their child in late November or early December. He says the couple plans to spend the holidays in New York with his family. Brafman says Douglas will live with his grandfather, Kirk Douglas.
