Cybill Shepherd's Son Enters Pretrial Program In Airline-Flight Theft Case

The son of actress Cybill Shepherd has entered a pretrial program in Pennsylvania requiring his attendance at 24 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in the hopes of clearing his record of theft charges.

Cyrus Shepherd-Oppenheim of Sebastopol, Calif., was admitted into the program Friday by Philadelphia Municipal Judge Georganne Daher. The arrangement was part of an agreement with prosecutors.

The 22-year-old University of Pennsylvania student was charged with stealing cash, a camera and other items from carry-on luggage during a United Airlines flight in January. If he completes the program, the charges will be cleared from his record.

Shepherd-Oppenheim declined comment following the hearing. He is the son of the star of the 1980s “Moonlighting” television show and her ex-husband, chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim.
