Sam Jones IIIActor Sam Jones III was granted permission to fly from the U.S. to Mexico for a paid personal appearance at a party earlier this week despite his looming prison sentence.

The former Smallville star is due to be sentenced in June for his involvement in a drug ring, which saw the gang allegedly attempt to sell more than 10,000 oxycodone pills - a painkiller known as "hillbilly heroin."

The 27 year old has pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to supply drugs and is facing up to 20 years in jail.

He is currently on bail ahead of his sentencing and not allowed to leave America, but filed papers at Los Angeles Federal Court recently, asking officials to allow him to travel to Mexico for a paid appearance at Dady'O Nightclub in Cancun.

His request was granted, according to TMZ.com - and he was allowed to attend the party on Thursday night.
