Redmond O’Neal, the son of the cancer-battling Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal, will enter rehab to avoid further jail time, according to a report by People. A LA judge said the 24-year-old — who is currently in jail for a drug-related arrest in early April — could enter the county’s drug court program, which will help him avoid future incarceration if he stays clean, attends court, and does well in rehab. If O’Neal slips, it could mean four more years in prison. His next court date is set for May 28.
