Brad Renfro Ordered to Rehab

Actor Brad Renfro has been ordered to enter a drug rehabilitation program after pleading not guilty to attempted possession of heroin.

The 23-year-old star of The Client was arrested in December, for allegedly trying to buy heroin during a police sting operation in Downtown Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dorothy Reyes said yesterday Renfro was eligible for treatment instead of a prison sentence, under a California law covering convictions for personal possession of drugs where no violence is involved.

Renfro will return to court later today to face a charge of driving under the influence with a suspended license in a separate incident.

The trouble-prone actor has had numerous legal clashes since 2000 – he was charged with attempting to steal a yacht in Florida in 2000 and driving without a license and public intoxication in 2002.
