Judge Sends Ryan O'Neal's Son Back to Rehab

A judge in Los Angeles is sending the troubled son of Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett back to rehab after more than a month in jail.

The judge placed Redmond O'Neal back on probation and sentenced to an intense residential rehab program during a brief hearing Thursday. The 25-year-old has been jailed since Dec. 29 for violating his probation on a previous drug conviction.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Tynan says if O'Neal succeeds at the rehab program, he will then be sent to a sober-living facility. He may eventually be granted passes to leave, but Tynan says the program will be "justifiably" severe.

O'Neal's attorney, Richard Pintal, says his client has made considerable progress while in jail and has earned another chance at rehab.
