Charlie Sheen Plea

Would Involve Jail Time

5/7/2010 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen is worried about doing 30 days in jail for his Aspen criminal case ... and with good reason, because we've learned there are active plea bargain negotiations underway that would land Sheen in the pokey.

Charlie Sheen possible 30 days in jail for Aspen case
TMZ first reported ... the Aspen D.A. was originally willing to allow Sheen to plead guilty to a felony with no jail time.  Sources say under the D.A.'s old proposal, Charlie would be placed on probation for 2 years and at the end of the period his conviction would be expunged -- erased.

But sources say Sheen's people had a practical problem with the plea proposal -- As one source said, "There are a lot of ways to violate probation, and we don't want Charlie doing something that in the next two years could land him in prison for a probation violation."  Translation -- Charlie would probably do something to cross the legal line in the next 2 years. 

Sources also say, Charlie was also worried someone would try to extort him -- i.e., some woman would demand money, or else she'd go to the D.A. with a bogus story.  As one source says, "Charlie has a giant bull's eye on him."

So our sources say there's a new proposal on the table -- Charlie would plead either guilty or no contest to a misdemeanor and get jail time.  We're told right now Charlie is willing to accept 10 days in jail but the D.A. wants at least 30 days.

The reason Charlie's people want jail time -- once he serves his sentence he would either not be placed on probation or he'd get probation for a very short period of time -- so if he screws up later, the Aspen case won't come back to bite him.

We're told there are active negotiations underway between Charlie's lawyers and the D.A., but so far no deal has been reached.

Can someone PLEASE explain to me this fascination with Charlie Sheen? In my opinion he is NOT someone who is relevant at all and I don't see the big deal about all of his troubles. Honestly, and this is saying A LOT, I would rather read about Kate Gosselin.

The real victims are the kids. I hope both parents do what they need to do. They are both addicts.



I guess I'm in her court. She appears to be making progress while he is having an affair and shaving his head.



I'm not anybody important, but I know what addiction can do to a family.

My only problem with Sheen he's one of those loons that think the gov. brought down the Twin Towers, along with Rosie O'Donnell, Willie Nelson just to name a few. Which should they should be in the idiot hall of fame.

Yep, he needs some jail time. It's true that if it were just any other guy, the poor clod would never see the light of day. Same should apply to the rich and famous.

Sheen needs ot go to jail.. It's too bad he didn't get in any trouble when he SHOT Kelly Preston (accident, ya right). He'a ticking time bomb and he gets away with everything because he's rich.



None of this has hurt his career, which is stunning.

He has a bull's-eye painted on him? Well, he put it there himself. He's a nasty piece of work.
