Farrah Fawcett's son pleads no contest to drug charge

The son of Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett pleaded no contest this morning to felony drug charges.

Redmond O'Neal was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Graciela Freixes to a minimum of one year in a residential drug treatment program, a six-year suspended state prison term and three years of formal probation.

O'Neal faced a single count of possession of an illegal substance in a jail facility.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office alleged that O'Neal was found in possession of heroin during a routine security check in April in the parking lot of Pitchess Detention South Facility.
