Redmond O'Neal Spotted Out of Prison for the First Time Since His 2015 Arrest
The son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal was out and about in L.A. last week
Redmond O’Neal has been spotted out of prison for the first time since he was sentenced to three years in state prison last July.
The 31-year-old son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal was released to the supervision of the Los Angeles County Probation Department on September 1, a spokesperson for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) confirms to PEOPLE. O’Neal was sent to CDCR on July 30, 2015 with a three year sentence, but was credited for nearly a year served by his trial judge.
On Wednesday, he was seen spending time with his father in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Redmond wore a black button down and khakis, while Ryan sported a navy blue polo shirt and jeans as they ran errands in L.A.
In May 2015, Redmond had his probation revoked. His probation had just been reinstated in October 2014 after getting it revoked earlier that year because a judge determined he did not obey all the laws, used drugs and did not maintain doctor appointments, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. He was sentenced to three years in prison.
A similar situation happened in September 2011, when his probation was revoked for drug-related issues after he admitted to using narcotics in court-ordered rehab. The one-year rehabilitation program was imposed after he pleaded no contest to felony gun possession and heroin possession one month before.
“I love him, but I have never seen a more scary side of addiction,” the 52-year-old actress said. “He’s got addiction problems so bad that it breaks my heart … Nobody knows what to do with Redmond. From what I’ve seen, there is no way he’s going to survive.”
In 2011, Ryan spoke to PEOPLE outside of the Los Angeles Superior Court after Redmond had given his plea.
“He never recovered from the loss of his mother,” Ryan said, speaking to Fawcett’s 2009 death.
