Charlie Sheen will reportedly plead guilty for assaulting his wife when he appears in court next week and serve a 30-day jail sentence. Sheen is due in court on June 7 to begin immediately serving his sentence following his arrest on Christmas Day in Aspen, Colorado. He faced a series of serious charges after his wife Brooke Mueller claimed he had held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her (read about that here.) Both had been drinking at the time, and both later entered rehab for their problems. Despite Mueller’s plea to drop the assault charges, prosecutors pressed ahead with the case. By agreeing to a lesser offense, rather than the more serious charges of third-degree assault and felony menacing, he received a reduced sentence of just 30 days. Personally, I think this guy’s whole life is a felony. Sheen must also complete 36 hours of anger management sessions before appearing in court.
Per E! Online:
Sheen is unlikely to make waves while in Aspen lockup and his good behavior will bring his sentence down significantly, meaning he’d only serve about half the time.
I wouldn’t be banking on the “good behavior” part. Sheen hasn’t exhibited good behavior in years! But, hey, he probably can when it suits him, like getting sprung from the clink early. Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin confirmed deal had been reached but declined to disclose details, and a judge has yet to sign off on the deal. Once he’s out of the joint, he’ll be a free man – no probation. Sheen was given a choice of straight probation or jail time, but took the later because the probation option was considered “too risky.” Let’s face it, judging by Sheen’s track record, the chances of him being able to keep out of mischief while on probation are slim to none. We can’t expect him to act like a normal law-abiding citizen! He’ll also get out in just enough time to start filming “Two and a Half Men,” which he recently signed on for two more seasons, getting a huge raise with the contract. How convenient.
