Washington, (ANI): Farrah Fawcett's son Redmond O'Neal was temporarily released from prison so that he could see his cancer-battling mother under a visit monitored by the sheriff's office.
Redmond, who has been serving his sentence for a violation of his parole stemming from drug charges, had been released for three hours over the weekend.
"A sergeant and a deputy drove him to his mother's home [Saturday] and he's now back in custody," People magazine quoted L.A. County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore as saying. Whitmore further said that the O'Neal family shelled 1,285.39 dollars for the personal visit, adding: "The visit wasn't paid for with taxpayer's money."
The 24-year-old prisoner, the only son of Fawcett and Oscar-nominated actor Ryan O'Neal, was said to have had a wonderful time with his mother.
A source added: "Redmond's attorney had requested that he be allowed to visit his mom a while ago. It was not a crisis or emergency. Farrah is status quo. He had a lovely visit with his mom. Farrah was thrilled to see him. It was a wonderful visit."
