The troubled son of the late Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal was taken to task by Judge Michael Tynan at a progress report hearing Thursday morning. Reading from the progress report Judge Tynan said, " I thought this kid wanted to do something. He isn't working as hard as he can."
However, Raymond May, a representative from Impact where Redmond is in residential treatment, told Judge Tynan that Redmond's lack of participation was because, "He did a massive amount of drugs for years and that stunted his emotional growth, and he is just coming out of that."
Redmond addressed the court and said he has been "sober for 9 months. I have been holding back. I have been adjusting and still dealing with the death of my mother."
Redmond's legal ace attorney Richard Pintal told RadarOnline.com, "The progress report was good. Redmond is doing well, but as Judge Tynan pointed out, he needs to step it up." Redmond O'Neal was visibly upset after the hearing but told RadarOnline.com exclusively, "I'm ok. I'm going to do better."
Judge Tynan ordered Redmond back on Dec 2, and said, "The report better be glowing, or there will be consequences." Pintal says Redmond is committed to his sobriety and took the warning from the judge very seriously.
