Tatum O’Neal must attend drug treatment program

Us Magazine has the details on the sentencing of former child star, Tatum O’Neal, who blamed her close relapse on the death of her Scottish Terrier, Lena:

Tatum O’Neal pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct on Wednesday after trying to buy crack cocaine last month.

The actress, 44, was ordered to spend two half-day sessions in a drug treatment program and pay a $95 surcharge, the Associated Press reports.

If she meets those conditions when she returns to court September 4, her case will be dismissed.

O’Neal was arrested June 1 for trying to buy the drugs near her NYC apartment.

The former child star (and recovering addict) blamed her close relapse on the death of her 16-year-old Scottish terrier.

The Scottish Terrier and Dog News‘ previous coverage of this story includes an interview with Lena’s groomer and photos of the dog with O’Neal.

Scottie News wishes Tatum good luck.
