Redmond O'Neal dodged a bullet in his probation case, but was fitted with an ankle monitor and told that he's going to prison for six YEARS if he effs up again.
The 26-year-old's probation was revoked in September after he allegedly snuck out of rehab, ordered drugs on a payphone and was later arrested with heroin.
A judge sent him back to the treatment facility instead of jail, with the stern warning that this is his final shot, and a state-of-the-art GPS monitoring bracelet.
This thing is no joke. According to law enforcement, the device features real-time cameras that take a snapshot of Redmond's whereabouts every five minutes.
If he steps outside his assigned area, an alarm goes off.
Redmond O'Neal's long history battling drugs is well documented. He pleaded no contest to drug and weapons charges in August and earned a YEAR in rehab.
As we said earlier, if Redmond screws up again, he faces up to six years in prison. With his track record, we'd put the odds of a screw-up around 50/50.
