's 26-year-old son Redmond got one hell of a parting gift during his sentencing last week for a probation violation -- a state-of-the-art GPS monitoring bracelet.

Redmond's probation was revoked in September -- after he allegedly snuck out of rehab and ordered drugs on a payphone -- and last week, a judge sent him back to the treatment facility ... with the monitoring device around his ankle.

According to law enforcement sources, the device sends back detailed information about Redmond's whereabouts every five minutes -- and if he steps outside his assigned area, an alarm goes off.

Redmond -- who's had a long history battling drugs -- pled no contest to drug and weapons charges back in August ... and was sentenced to a year in rehab.

If Redmond screws up again, he faces up to six years in prison.

Crazy... The system doesn't give rich white boys time... they go to petting zoos and rehab, while they give bros time like it's tic tacs.... that's why the country will fall.. a house divided can't stand..

Why does this 'kid' always get a slap on the wrist? He's been caught numerous times w/ heroin, gun possession, anybody else would be behind bars.

Robert Downey, Jr. spent over two years in prison after violating his probations. That shaped him up. He was an accomplished actor, but Redmond has no accomplishments, besides living off his parents.

Why do the authorites keep giving Redmond a slap on the wrist? I think he needs to do hard time with his own kind.

I hope he uses this as a chance to turn his life around, it's never too late to make a real change. It's been brought up a lot, but look at RDJ. A few years ago, he was fired off "Ally McBeal" and I think pretty much everyone had written him off as a junkie who had burned every chance he had been given, and he had been given LOT of chances. Now look at him, he's one of the most bankable movie stars in the WORLD. He gets movies made simply by agreeing to star in them. He went from being uninsurable to being a star that producers would do anything including prostituting themselves in order to get him in their movie.

Anyways, long ramble aside, this kid can turn it around just like RDJ. He doesn't have RDJ's immense charisma or talent, but he can still be a success in other ways. It's never too late.
