Ryan O'Neal, Son Delay Entering Pleas In Drug Charges

Posted: Updated:

MALIBU, Calif. — Ryan O'Neal and his son have delayed entering pleas in their felony drug cases until after the new year. The Oscar-nominated actor and his son appeared in court Thursday morning, where attorneys asked a judge for more time to review evidence. The 67-year-old actor and his 23-year-old son were ordered to return on Jan. 9.

They were arrested in September when Los Angeles sheriff's deputies did a routine parole check on Redmond O'Neal, who was staying at his father's Malibu home.

O'Neal, 67, was nominated for a best actor Academy Award for 1970's "Love Story." Redmond, 23, is his son from a relationship with Farrah Fawcett.

The actor's attorney has denied the drugs belonged to his client.
