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.
