Farrah Fawcett's son, Redmond O'Neal was on Tuesday given permission to leave his cell for three hours to attend his mother's funeral.

That's an absolute yes, the attorney told PEOPLE when asked whether he would be allowed to attend his mother's funeral.

O'Neal, 24, is currently serving a jail sentence for violating his probation on drug charges.

The 24-year-old is Fawcett's only son who she had with Oscar-nominated actor Ryan O'Neal.

A private funeral for Farrah Fawcett will take place on at a Catholic cathedral in downtown Los Angeles.

The former Charlie's Angles star died on Thursday at 62 after battling cancer for three years.

The funeral is set to start at 4pm PDT.
