“Jail just isn't the place for Redmond, nor any drug addict. Redmond needs intensive rehab treatment. Redmond absolutely won't be going back to the west Los Angeles facility that he was previously in though, if the judge allows Redmond to enter treatment once again. Jails in California are notoriously overcrowded, and Redmond isn't a violent offender. Redmond's fate now rests with Judge Schwartz.”

As was first to report, Redmond’s last facility allowed his father to visit Redmond, against his doctor's orders. "The first day that Redmond arrived at the West Los Angeles facility, Ryan O'Neal decided to visit his son,” an insider dished. “Ryan was allowed to visit, against Redmond’s doctor’s orders, as it was thought the visit would be beneficial to Redmond.”
