Farrah Fawcett - Judge Orders Redmond O'neal Back To Rehab

Ryan O'Neal and Farrah Fawcett's troubled son Redmond has escaped a jail term after he was caught using methamphetamine during a previous stint at a rehab centre.
O'Neal avoided jail time in August (11) after he pleaded no contest to two felony counts, including heroin and firearms possession, because the judge sentencing him felt he would be better served in rehab.
He was also placed on five years' probation but warned he faced a three-year state prison sentence if he violated the court's terms. Last month (Sep11), his probation was revoked and Redmond was taken into custody after confessing he used drugs while in rehab.
He was back in court on Friday (07Oct11) to be sentenced, but Court Judge Keith Schwartz decided the best place for O'Neal would be in rehab, and ordered him back to the centre. He will be fitted with an electronic monitoring device.
Redmond's lawyer Richard Pintal tells E! News his client made a heart-felt speech to the court. He says, "I'm proud how honest (Redmond) was with the court. It was a young man speaking from the heart, who has insight about his demons and addictions and he sincerely wants to address them.
"I am extremely pleased with the results. He is out of jail. He is in treatment. The judge put on a list of very stringent conditions, all of which are very fair and very reasonable. These conditions are all in the short term/long term hope that Redmond gets clean and has a life outside of the criminal justice system - which is what everyone wants."
A progress hearing will be held on 16 November (11).
Redmond O'Neal was jailed in 2009 after he was found in possession of heroin during a routine security check at the Pitchess Detention Center, California. He was behind bars when his mother died in June, 2009.
