Charlie Sheen will be spending a month splitting his time between jail at night and giving acting lessons during the day as part of a plea bargain with the Colorado District Court. Sheen was charged with felony second-degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief related to a Christmas day attack on his wife, Brooke Mueller.
As part of a plea deal with prosecutors, Charlie Sheen will perform community service by giving acting lessons at a community theater in Aspen. Sheen will also assist with fundraising and promotional events for the theater.
The Two and a Half Men star will also serve at least 17 days in jail, spending nights in lock up and days at the theater. Sheen will also be sentenced to a three month probation period.
Sheen will plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in exchange for prosecutors dropping the other charges against him.
A Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen divorce is not happening, reps for the actor and his wife said in a press statement Monday. Rumors the couple was on the way to divorce have been circulating since a bizarre Christmas Day incident during which Sheen allegedly threatened Mueller with a knife.
“Please let us clarify this: They are not seeking a divorce nor has one been contemplated,” Mueller’s attorney and Sheen’s producer on Two and a Half Men said in a joint statement.
RadarOnline.com and other gossip sites have claimed Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller have already reached a financial divorce agreement. The couple allegedly has not officially filed yet because they are waiting for Sheen’s court case regarding the alleged Christmas Day attack to be settled.
Mueller supposedly moved out of the couple’s home last week after reports Sheen has been seen visiting a paid escort. Sheen and Mueller’s reps, however, deny the actor and his wife are headed for divorce.
“There has been no financial agreements between the parties of any sort,” the couples’ reps said. “Stories to the contrary are false.”
