Charlie Sheen's Wife Wants to Reconcile

12/30/2009 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller has lawyered up in case prosecutors decide to charge her with making a false police report, TMZ has learned. And Brooke and Charlie Sheen both want the court to modify the protective order so they can have contact with each other and try and save their marriage.

We've learned Brooke has hired famed criminal defense lawyer Yale Galanter, who represented OJ Simpson for years. Galanter tells TMZ Brooke did not recant the story she told cops on Christmas Day -- that Charlie allegedly held a knife to her throat and threatened to have her killed. But, Galanter says, Brooke did "minimize her story, like many wives in a similar situation do, when they realize their husband could go to jail."

Galanter tells TMZ he will file papers with the Aspen court this morning, asking the judge to allow Brooke and Charlie to resume contact with each other "so they can work on resolving the conflicts in their marriage." Galanter says Brooke and Charlie love each other very much, calling what happened on Xmas, "one bad night."

Galanter, who is currently in Aspen, says he was specifically hired to make sure prosecutors don't "overreact" and charge Brooke with lying to cops. He says, like many women who find themselves in similar circumstances, Brooke didn't realize that Charlie would be arrested after she called 911. So, Galanter says, Brooke soft-pedaled her story to a female cop hours after the 911 call but insists she did not recant.

If she was that drunk, why wasn't she arrested, for child endangering. And didn't she say, she wanted him arrested. Yes, dear, he could do alot of time because of you. Would that be fair, no! Because she probably initiated it. No court of law is going to let things go, so they can work on their marriage, thats not how the system works. She claims he committed a crime. Alot of money from her side and his side might buy a judge. Just depends on what state your in.
If she wants to save his butt, she should just say she lied, take the punishment, and then divorce. Otherwise, he's looking at some serious time.
Why do people like this keep hooking up and havin kids.
This should prove really interesting. Will big money, and status quo, get him off the hook? And wouldn't that be illegal?

Thought that only happened here.

Come on Harvey give us your expert opinion.

IMO, Brooke is kicking herself for being such a sloppy drunk. It has been gossiped about she has been lurking about into the financial assets of Charlie, wants to strike while his income is to high.
Divorce her..Charlie. Fight for your kids. She has been a gold digger and drunk.

I agree with Max. She realized her cash cow was about to evaporate.

I don't think he will get any jail time unless there was an eyewitness. It's like he said verses she said.

I cannot stand either one of them, but he seems to be the lesser of the two evils. Sounds like she is running out of money in Aspen, and remembered why she NEEDED him in the first place. They really should take the children away from her. She is partying and drunker than hell at 8am, while the twins are being raised by their nanny.

Well, like so many other women, she'll go back wanting to believe his promises "it will never happen again". That is until he "accidentally" really hurts her (think Rhianna) or kills her. I am so sick of weak-willed women who can't realize the guy has problems and YOU can't fix him. The sad truth is, stats are only 1%!!! of abusive men EVER recover. EVER! Google "will he abuse again" or "men who abuse and the women who love them" or "why women don't leave abusive men" or anything like that and get awakened. I know I sure was and did my girlfriend stay gone when we helped her leave her abusive husband? Heck no! She's back with him and her 12 year old son is following in his dad's footsteps - slugging his mother, locking her out of the house and throwing things at her head. Yup. One big happy family while the a@@ got everything he wanted.

You called 911 and told them that he was threatening you with a knife and you didn't expect him to go to jail, really? What a dumb biatch. Neither of them deserve those kids.

She didn't realize he would get arrested? WTF did she call 911 for if she didn't want the cops to come and take his a$$ away?!

Sad to say but I think they should divorce. Who wants to be in a relationship like that? I think the kids will be better off in the long run. I have no doubt Charlie will be constant in their lives. I hope it all works out for the best. I say stay single Charlie. Some dudes just arn't the marrying kind and that's ok! Do whats best for the kids. :) LUV YA CS!!!

SOUNDS LIKE THEY BOTH NEED GOD IN THEIR LIVES. SOUNDS LIKE THEY BOTH HAVE A MENTAL PROBLEM. LOOKS LIKE SHE MUST HAVE TOLD A LIE IF SHE WANTS TO RECONCILE. IF THIS STORY IS TRUE. JUST SHOWS YOU THAT ANYONE WILL LIE ON YOU JUST LOOK AT BOTH OF THEM. ONLY THING THAT CAN BE SAID IS GET HELP YOU BOTH NEED IT. SOUNDS LIKE EVERYBODY IN THE ACTING BUSINESS AND OTHER PROFESSIONS NEED GOD IN THEIR LIVES SO WHY DON'T YOU ALL TRY IT AND SEE HOW HE WORKS IN YOUR LIVES.
