Redmond O’Neal will be granted a temporary leave from jail to attend the funeral of his mother, Farrah Fawcett, on Tuesday, Access Hollywood has confirmed.

He will be escorted by two deputies and a sergeant and will be allowed to stay for the entire length of the service, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department spokesperson Steve Whitmore told Access.

In addition, Redmond will be permitted to wear a suit instead of his jail uniform. As for handcuffs, “that will be decided tomorrow,” Whitmore added.

Funeral services for Fawcett, who died on June 25 after a long battle with cancer, will be held on Tuesday at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, according to the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The former “Charlie’s Angels” star was 62.
