D.A. Won't Back Down in Charlie Sheen Case

2/6/2010 3:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller met with the prosecutor Friday, but they could not persuade the D.A. to back off the case ... sources tell TMZ.

Charlie Sheen Brooke Mueller
TMZ broke the story that Charlie will be charged with felony menacing and misdemeanor assault when he is arraigned in Aspen on Monday for the Xmas Day brouhaha.

We're told the D.A. was intractable and the charges will be filed on Monday before Sheen appears in court.

But there may be a big problem in prosecuting the case -- as in one Brooke Mueller. Our sources say she wants this case to disappear in the worst way ... never a great sole witness on the prosecution side.

As for plea bargaining the case -- our sources say it's possible, if the plea is for a petty misdemeanor, but otherwise he'll fight it out in court.

Charlie is really not having a great weekend! Don't think the DA in Aspen is a fan of his.

This is a stupid move by the DA...
"Rule 504 Husband-wife privilege
(a) Spousal testimony. The spouse of a party has a privilege to refuse to testify against the party as to events occurring after the date of their marriage. A party has a privilege to prevent his or her spouse from testifying against the party as to events occurring after the date of their marriage."

This idiot DA should be immediately FIRED and sent back to Law School...He cannot make Brooke testify against Charlie, so there goes their ONLY witness...
Waste of taxpayer money...Waste of time...

What a screwed up DA. Another one. Must be the day for loser DA's. This one has no witness but he just presses ahead anyway. He's determined he's going to keep them apart and now this. What an idiot. Surely this is going to end in disaster for the DA. I'm never going to Colorado!

Yes, a HUGE waste of money! If I DID live in Colorado I'd be furious. These days there is no money to waste on somebody's ill conceived plan.

Do those rules apply when domestic violence is involved. I thought when domestic violence was involved the state brought the charges weather or not the other spouse wanted them or not...

I think its time Charlie does some time and stops getting these spercial privileges and dad to bail him out.

Maybe your spouse was out late because he was having such a good time talking to his mother that he forgot it was 4 AM. Or maybe he was out sleeping with every table dancer he could find that night. Which would you choose?

An enormous portion of the American economy is based on the automobile. Making cars, selling cars, repairing cars, financing cars, and then junking the cars.

I think this DA is using Charlie for his 15 minutes. Perhaps since Aspen has so much money to waste on this crap, they could spot LA a loan?

The true happiness of Now is to simply enjoy whatever is going on at the moment, no matter how trivial. Like watching ants. You don't need to spend a lot of money to enjoy Nowness. You just have to be focused into Now and not think about anything else.

Gee, ya' think this turd DA wants to get his name in the papers and in other media? He ought to get his butt kicked out of office. What a waste of time and money. Small town turd wants big time coverage. Pathetic.

The state will probably accuse Charlie Sheen for all the unsolved crimes in Colorado's history since the year 1876, when it first became a state.

I wouldn't be surprised they didn't charge him for a stagecoach robbery which took place during the Civil War!!!
