September 18, 2009 |  1:06 pm

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.
