Redmond O'Neal’s lawyer is trying to get him out of the slammer. Attorney Richard Pintal is lobbying to get his client transferred from prison into a residential treatment facility.
Sources tells Radar, "The goal is to permit transition to a non-custody regiment of recovery."
The insider continues, "Redmond is doing very well, but there is only so much that can be done in the treatment program behind bars."
Redmond has been in custody since he was arrested for possession of heroin last spring. O'Neal is currently at Pitchess Detention Center where he is enrolled in a stringent inmate recovery program. His next court appearance is set for September 18th.
In related news, Redmond’s lawyer says rumors of his client doing a reality show are “100% false."
Well that’s good news! We’re not sure we’re in favor of Redmond being released so soon. He needs to learn his lesson the hard way!
