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. Ryan O’Neal faces methamphetamine possession charges and Redmond O'Neal faces misdemeanor charges for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of pepper spray.
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.
