Redmond O'Neal to Leave Jail for Drug Rehab
After over a month in jail, Redmond O'Neal, the 25-year-old son of the late Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal, will be moving to a drug rehab.
The Associated Press reports that a judge placed the troubled Hollywood scion back on probation, sentencing him to a residential drug rehab program. O'Neal has been behind bars since Dec. 29 for violating his parole on a prior drug conviction.
L.A. judge Michael Tynan said that if O'Neal's rehab stay is successful, he will be moved to a sober-living facility.
An attorney for O'Neal said that his client made "considerable" progress during his time in jail, and deserves a second shot at rehab. The judge noted that his new program will be "justifiably" severe.
