Charlie Sheen

Plea Deal Close

5/1/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0430-charlie-sheen-ex-getty-1TMZ has learned Charlie Sheen's lawyers are deep in plea negotiations with Aspen prosecutors and a deal is close -- in large part because Charlie's show is hanging in the balance.

Sources close to Sheen tell TMZ Charlie's team has one goal -- the plea deal must be made by May 19 ... the date of the CBS upfronts, when the fall schedule is announced.  We're told CBS is skittish about re-upping the show if Charlie's fate is uncertain.

Insiders involved in the contract negotiations tell TMZ it's increasingly looking like Charlie will cut a new deal with Warner Bros. for two more years of "Two and a Half Men."

As for the plea deal, sources say there have been "numerous conversations" between Charlie's lawyers and Aspen prosecutors.  As we first reported, the hang-up was over whether Charlie would be pleading guilty to a felony or a misdemeanor. 

We're told it looks like Charlie will end up pleading to one count of misdemeanor criminal mischief for breaking Brooke Mueller's eyeglasses.

He has to settle before CBS has to make a final decision about their schedule.
I guess Justice being served is in there some where.

Charlie had the nerve to say that Denise was crazy. Denise is not crazy, he is. Denise is a smart woman to have left him. Now, Brooke is seeing what and why Denise divorced Charlie in the first place.

Dear comment 36. I was an abused wife. However Denise in her own reality show let the world see that she lives in a pig stye literally. Her pigs were in here home on more than 1 occasion peeing and pooping on the floors. That is not normal. Nor is it a good enviroment for their children to be in. I do not condone violence but Charlie was correct in my opinion that she acts crazy. Nobody with any class allows pigs to do their business in a home especially when they have little kids. I wish the 7 of them the best. And, please Charlie and CBS keep the show going for 2 more years. Even if you have to have the decision in limbo until July it is a winning show and why kick it in the can with a pilot that might fail. If need be put on a pilot for a few weeks and start the season in late October. If you show it we will watch

Charlie may have dodged a legal bullet but both he and his wife still look like total loser douche-bags. Get some help for your obvious substance abuse problem you guys. Perhaps Dr. Drew has an opening next season's Celebrity Rehab. Nice thing about Dr. Drew's program is that quitting drugs is apparently optional both during and after the program.

What a joke the criminal justice system is in terms of celebrities. They get away with murder literally ! This guy has been a mess up for years, and has never suffered any consequences. He should get a feel for the steel bars clanging behind him. He really needs a lesson.

you would think this deal was made because this guy is a celebrity but this is the way most domestic violence cases plead out. it is sad.

By the look on his face, he cant wait to show up in his pj's at the door step of another cracked out porno queen. This man should not be married!!! He needs to rent a room in some brothel on the ther side of the planet and pick up an occasional role in some mediocre sitcom to pay for his filty habits. Youre lower than dirt Chuck!!

look people its obvious charlie is seeking help. he knows he has a drug addiction problem. yes, granted he has broken the law, but he's trying to get back on track. we don't need to persecute him and above all he's paying for his own help, which he should, but cut the guy some slack!
