Remember after Ryan O' Neal and Redmond O'Neal got arrested for that whole drug possession thing? Sure you do. I mean how often is it that a father and son get to bond like that? That is world class bonding. Spending time together in jail can only bring a family closer together.
Anyway, at the time, Ryan's lawyer spun this little yarn about how Ryan was just trying to keep the drugs away from Redmond.
“The drugs found in Ryan's bedroom were Redmond's. He had confiscated them from Redmond. He was trying to keep them away from his son.”
Uh huh. Well, today Ryan plead guilty to felony drug possession. He was sentenced to of course no jail time, but had to promise the judge a signed Farrah Fawcett 70's poster. Yeah, that one. For those of you not born in the 1970's, Farrah was. Oh never mind.
Ryan got an 18 month drug deferment program which means that if he goes to the meetings and doesn't get busted with Redmond's drugs in that time the case will be dismissed against him. Yep, no jail time and it will be like it never existed. Meanwhile, you or I, or any of the “everyday people” of the world would be getting to know our new cellmate.
