LOS ANGELES (AP) - Redmond O’Neal, the son of the late Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal, has successfully completed a drug diversion program.

O’Neal’s graduation from the treatment program on Thursday led to the dismissal of two felony drug-related cases, district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison said.

The 25-year-old will remain on probation for another two years for a case in which he brought drugs to a jail facility.

Redmond put his nose to the grindstone and completed a very vigorous drug court program,” his attorney, Richard F. Pintal said Friday. “In the wake of that, he earned the two dismissals from Judge (Michael) Tynan.”

The younger O’Neal has remained out of trouble since he was jailed for a probation violation in January. Tynan placed him in a drug diversion program a month later that the judge said would be “justifiably” severe.

Among the charges dismissed Thursday was a case filed after sheriff’s deputies found drugs at Ryan O’Neal’s home in 2008 while his son was on probation.
