Charlie Sheen is reportedly planning to agree to a plea deal that will see him jailed. The ‘Two and a Half Men’ star – who will appear in court on June 7 to answer charges of felony menacing, misdemeanour third-degree assault and misdemeanour criminal mischief relating to a row he had with wife Brooke Mueller on Christmas Day (25.012.09) – is planning to plead guilty to a misdemeanour offence, and will start a 30-day jail term immediately afterwards.
A source told People magazine: "Charlie intends to go to court on June 7 to plead to a misdemeanour and immediately begin serving his 30 days in jail. With good behaviour, he could end up doing 15 or so days." It is believed Charlie, 44, will not be placed on probation once he has completed his sentence. A spokesperson for the actor insists he hasn’t yet agreed a deal, but is willing to negotiate with the court. His representative said:
"Charlie has not agreed to do anything except enter into discussions with the court. "He has been accused of a crime. Prior to any trial, courts would like to work out a plea. It saves the court money, it saves the community money. If they can do it, they will. If they can’t decide on something, they will go to trial."
Charlie is expected to serve any prison sentence in Aspen’s Pitkin County Jail. The facility – who have reportedly been asked to flaunt their no smoking policy for the actor – allows inmates to mingle with members of the opposite sex in shared areas, has a spacious living room decorated with plants and a large television, and is known for its luxury cuisine. One prison official said: "He’d be crazy not to want to do his time here in Aspen." Charlie is currently living apart from 32-year-old Brooke, with the couple sharing custody of their 15-month-old twins Bob and Max.
