Lance Kerwin

The guy who was James at 15 is now 49 and lucky to not be serving 90 days in jail for theft.

Lance Kerwin, who played the title teen in the 1970s-era series, received credit for time served and was sentenced to five years' probation for falsifying information on an application to get state-provided medical benefits and food stamps on the island of Kauai.

According to his attorney, Kerwin, whose last appearance onscreen was in the 1995 thriller Outbreak, failed to include in his paperwork that he owned several properties in Hawaii. The actor has already paid $21,822 in restitution, he says.

Kerwin was also ordered to perform 300 hours of community service.
