Charlie Sheen -- Ready to Cop a Plea

3/12/2010 1:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie SheenWith his arraignment looming and his show on the line, Charlie Sheen is ready to plea bargain his felony case in Aspen, sources tell TMZ. But we're told prosecutors are not that eager to deal, at least not right now.

Sources tell us Sheen would plead no contest to a misdemeanor, provided he would not do any jail time. He'd agree to probation and also agree to take anger management classes.

Sheen's biggest bargaining chip is the accuser herself, wife Brooke Mueller, who was under the influence during the alleged Christmas Day assault and is currently in rehab.

And there's something else. People from Brooke's camp tell us she would rather walk on hot coals than testify against Charlie and wants this case to go away, stat.

The fly in the ointment: We're told prosecutors feel they have enough physical evidence to convince a jury that Brooke's original allegations against Charlie are truthful, even if she's shaky on the stand.

Charlie's arraignment in Aspen is set for Monday. He'll be on the "Two and a Half Men" set -- with a sober coach -- beginning Tuesday to film the last 4 episodes of the season. Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller

Well done on the poll.
There's obviously too many women on your staff. I suggest you get a male proofreader in the office?

It will be yet another plea deal for Charlie.

If he can get away with shooting a girl friend, beating up a girl friend, then he can get a pass on this one as well.

I agree, this poll is written very poorly and the results aren't going to be authentic because most people will be unsure how to answer it the way it's worded. It should have said jail for Charlie?
I think it's messed up if he gets away with it.

How could anyone publish such a poorly worded poll question?

Although the poll is not scientific, the results can not even come close to reflecting what readers think because the question is so flawed. Try to avoid using "no" or "yes" in a question for which the options are "no" or "yes", and it will be less confusing.

Charlie seems to get away with a lot of things especially against women. What does he have to do go OJ on them to go to jail, he is an abusive man!!! I will never watch his TV show again.

um, no thanks    

The poll is worded in a way where a lot of the answers will be the opposite of what the person means, it's not going to be at all accurate.

Jail might give him a wake up call, otherwise he's going to kill someone. And that's a fact. Sick to death of celebs getting off the hook for their crimes.

Seriously? The only way domestic abuse is going to stop is if we as a society start taking it seriously. Charlie Sheen is a walking issue, and he needs to go to jail for assaulting his wife. Bottom line.

This is not the first time. Unfortunately, not just celebrities get away with this one. The "justice" system is not hard on any man for this crime.
