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.

Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen

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.

Oh Bonnie, please, Mueller is NOT a battered woman. She's a freaking gold-digger who just realized that if she pursues her current track with Sheen, no other man (with as much money, at least) will want her.

When someone, ANYONE, calls 911 - there is a GOOD CHANCE someone will be going to jail....UNLESS the complaining party, in this case Brooke making the 911 call - tells the cops it was a mistake RIGHT THEN AND THERE so no one gets hauled off to jail. Her lawyer sounds ridiculous. Does he have corrorating witnesses? There were people in the house as Brooke told the dispatcher. If he is SO SURE Charlie threatened her life - he's got to say more than what he has. But then - when you pay some guy $400 an hour - he is going to say what YOU want him to say. And the spin continues.....

Domestic Violence

1) When a man's physical, sexual, emotional, economic, or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence a female family member or friend;

2) Whatever the man does that the woman doesn't like;

3) a wife's false accusation before or during a divorce to obtain an Order of Protection that will legally separate the husband from his children, home, and personal possessions.

When a husband learns his wife is having an affair or spending too much money, then demands that she stop is seen as abuse, therefore, it is considered domestic violence.

Apparently she sobered up and realized that she'll never get another man as rich as Sheen. So she wants to reconcile.

Charlie needs to dump this psychotic mess.

"Yale" Galanter -- yeah, right. The only thing Ivy League about that idiot is his name, and it's probably made-up. I wonder if there's an attorney who *actually* went to Yale, whose name is "Nova Southeastern Galanter."
