The Question Charlie Sheen Can't Answer

3/15/2010 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Question Charlie Sheen Can't AnswerCharlie Sheen will plead not guilty today in Aspen -- weather permitting -- to felony menacing and two misdemeanors, but the judge could ask a question that could land Charlie in jail.

Charlie is currently out on bail for the Christmas Day incident involving his wife, Brooke Mueller. One of the conditions of bail -- Charlie can't consume alcohol or use drugs.

Our sources say Charlie has fallen off the wagon since his arrest ... which is why he's currently in rehab. If the judge asks Charlie about rehab during Monday's arraignment and whether alcohol and/or drugs drove him there, Charlie is in a no-win situation.

If he tells the judge he consumed alcohol or used drugs, his bail can be revoked and he could be thrown in jail. If he tells the judge he did not use alcohol or drugs, he could face a perjury charge.

Technically, all Charlie has to do is say two words -- not guilty. The judge isn't required to ask about anything. But if he does ... all bets are off.

Charlie is scheduled to fly out this AM from L.A. to Aspen. Flights were canceled last night because of weather.

This jerk will get away with his crime just like he has done the last few years. No such thing as justice when you are rich and white. Sheen will probably get another raise. Keep on abusing women Sheen nothing will be done about it.

Dummy, he is not required to answer, he can always invoke his 5th amendment rights.
Charlie is a good guy, he never hit anybody much less a stupid broad.
Oh, and he's got 140 million in the bank from 2HM syndication, not working at TMZ for free.

If I was the judge I would ask him about rehap and any other question that I can think of.

I'm tired of these celebs getting special treament when everyday people don't get any leeway.

Make Charlie pay for what he has done and face the consequences just like us non-celebs would have to.

What if the judge lets this just slide and doesn't ask the hard questions. Charlie could kill himself on drugs, like so many stars have recently, or kill someone else while he's driving drunk or abusing his spouse again. This judge needs to make sure that the public is safe from this repeat offender. Charlie has had too many chances to just be treated as a 'star.' If nothing else, Charlie should be protected from himself and a stay in jail might just save his life.

If the judge asks, he can reply he has had a problem in the past and that he's in rehab to make sure it doesn't return. OR, he can tell the judge that dealing with this DA and the unusual manner he has in weighing evidence has driven him to the brink and that he needed reinforcement. All too true. I absolutely HATE this DA. He's a meddling crappy less than adequate attorney who can't weigh good evidence from bad. Total fool! I am don't vacationing in Colorado.

Why make Charlie pay for the ravings his drunken and drugged up wife stated, then revoked, then wanted to forget the entire thing? TO Poster Joann: What makes you think he's done anything here? Brooke was twice the legal limit. What do you want him to pay for again? You have no clue or evidence he ever did anything to her.

Ever heard of the 5th amendment? Right to not self-incriminate?

The judge should bow down to his master and shine Sheen's shoes while he's down there.
Charlie shouldn't be bothered with such nonsense. He's got places to go and people to see!

1. The judge needs to do his job, anyone else would get popped for so blatantly violating conditions of bail.

2. Why did Charlie have an OPEN switchblade laying in his suitcase right after Brooke reported he had a knife to her throat?
