Charlie Sheen to plead guilty to assault, could serve 45 days in jail

It’s weird that I thought all of this stuff was settled a while ago, right? I guess it wasn’t. Us Weekly is reporting that Charlie Sheen, his lawyers and the Aspen, Colorado D.A. have worked out a deal in which Charlie will plead guilty to assaulting Brooke Mueller (in the Christmas Day incident). It’s a misdemeanor, but Charlie could end spending up to 45 days in jail. And not California jail, either – Colorado jail. Colorado doesn’t let you out after two hours just because they’re overcrowded and you have money.

Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen is preparing to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge in connection with his Christmas Day arrest for assaulting wife Brooke Mueller in Aspen.

As part of a plea deal with the Colorado District Attorney’s office, Sheen, 44, may face up to 45 days behind bars in Aspen’s Pitkin County Jail, sources tell In exchange for Sheen’s plea, a felony menacing charge will be dropped.

Sheen’s next court appearance had been scheduled for June 18 for a motions hearing leading up to the scheduled July 21 court trial, but a new court date of June 7 was arranged this week so that the plea deal can be entered and the trial canceled. Sheen will be required to appear in Aspen on June 7 to enter the plea, a judge ruled.

“Sheen’s going to be an Aspen resident for a little while,” a high-ranking official told Us. “His legal representatives didn’t want to risk him going to prison and thought it best to resolve the case now… Aspen is a lot more desirable than Canon City.”

[Canon City is the home of several prisons in Colorado, dubbed “The Alcatraz of the Rockies.” Theodore Kaczynski, aka The Unabomber, and FBI spy Robert Hanssen are among the many infamous guests there, though they are in Supermax — a facility Sheen was never at risking of going to.]

Indeed, the Pitkin County Jail has a gym where inmates play volleyball, dormitory-like cells, and co-ed living spaces filled with plants, TVs, games, paintings and ambient lighting.

Those perks aren’t enough to please Sheen, though. As Us reported exclusively last week, Sheen’s attorney, Richard Cummins, unsuccessfully asked jail officials to lift its smoking ban for the actor.

“No special exceptions will be made for him,” an official said.

Instead of jail time, Sheen could also be put on probation for two years or go to trial.

Eh. At the time, I believed Brooke’s side of the story on how the assault went down, but I’m not so sure at this point. I think they were both drunk and coked up and some sh-t happened. Not that that gives Charlie the right to hold a knife to Brooke’s neck and threaten to kill her (if that’s what happened), but I just think there’s more to the story. Neither one of them seem like good people in general, and both need to seriously get their acts together. Still, it will be nice to see Charlie doing time for something.

    I doubt he’ll ever see the inside of a cell.

    And Kaiser, yeah, I agree; they’re both screwed up individuals who well knew what they were getting into when they took the plunge. People like that shouldn’t breed.

  2. lucy2 says:

    Good, about time.
    Totally agree about both of them, they each seem like horrible people who became even worse together. Their poor kids.
    I can’t believe they seriously asked for him to be allowed to smoke.

  3. Kaboom says:

    45 days in jail translate to not having to bother attending mandated anger management classes in LA’s celebrity lawspeak

  4. Praise St. Angie! says:

    bellaluna took the words right off of my keyboard.

    people like that shouldn’t breed. they’re just setting their kids up for a life of dysfunction and fail.

  5. Linda says:

    A whole 45 days. Good lord, how will he do it? Idiot.

  6. YT says:

    They may both be alcoholic druggies, but Charlie made the extra effort to reach for a knife. Glad he isn’t being allowed to skate for that reason. Wonder if he is embarrassed about his actions or just upset that he is even charged much less facing possible jail time. Such a creepy guy.

  7. Jeri says:

    I hope he does some time – he needs to see celebrity can’t save him from all his sins.

  8. Sudini says:

    LOL @ Linda! That about sums it up 🙂

  9. california angel says:

    the fact that they are taking care of children is what makes the situation infinitely disturbing but like you said you never know the whole story…

  10. jules says:

    Could somebody please explain why this total douche is still on television???
    -and the highest paid actor on television, at that?

  11. Gabby says:

    @california angel: I don’t know why Brooke should have her children taken away from her just because she was assaulted while drunk…no matter how stupid and in-your-face irritating she was being.

    But yeah, they should DEFINITELY divorce for their kids’ sake.

    And Sheen, even when facing charges of assaulting his wife, seems incapable of being anything other than a totally spoiled douche. Your prison sounds more like a hotel, you ingrate.

  12. Jules says:

    Brooke was still drinking and doing drugs while pregnant…and after.
    (which could be why some think that she should not care for the children.)

  13. Jess Kuepfer says:

    This is humorous! Imho he was fantastic acting in Two and a Half Men, but possibly it was simply because he was simply just playing himself:-)

  14. I think, all in all, Charlie is a good guy and this just happened to be a one time brush with the law… I’m hoping at least.
