Court: Robert Downey Jr. fulfilled prison sentence

MALIBU, California (CNN) -- A court hearing has found that the one year actor Robert Downey Jr. served in prison fulfilled his sentence for a drug conviction, said the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office Tuesday.

Downey, 35, was required to appear at the hearing to determine if the time he served was calculated properly.

In a separate drug case, Downey is due in an Indio, California, courtroom on December 27 on charges stemming from a Thanksgiving weekend arrest in Palm Springs. Charges include drug possession, being under the influence of drugs and committing a felony while out on bail.

Downey, who recently made a comeback in the Fox television series "Ally McBeal," was nominated for an Academy Award for his title role in the 1992 movie, "Chaplin."
