Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal's son, Redmond O'Neal got a glowing report in his drug possession case Tuesday morning at the LAX Airport Courthouse, and is on track to complete his mandated year-long rehab stint in October, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

"Redmond is on track to complete his court ordered rehabilitation and if all continues to go well, at his next court date in October, the judge has indicated that he will set aside the state prison sentence, and place him on five years felony probation," O'Neal's famed attorney, Richard Pintal tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

"Once Redmond completes rehab, he will be actively involved in his sobriety and recovery, and may go to college, and has some very interesting business ventures he is interested in pursuing."

As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Redmond formally pleaded no contest to a felony possession of heroin and a firearms charge after he was pulled over by cops in Venice Beach last summer. Redmond was sentenced to one year of intensive rehab therapy by Judge Keith Schwartz.

He has battled an addiction to heroin for most of his adult life, but is ready to begin a new life, without drugs.

"Redmond is completely focused on his sobriety, and is getting ready to live a new life. Redmond is dedicated to his sobriety, and the court recognizes that," Pintal revealed.
