Charlie Sheen Plea Would Involve Jail Time

5/7/2010 11:07 AM 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 plea would involve jail time
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. 

Sheen was arrested Christmas morning in Aspen, Colorado for felony second degree assault, felony menacing and criminal mischief -- a misdemeanor. Brooke told 911 dispatchers Charlie had a "knife" and "threatened me" and that she feared for her life.

As we first reported, Brooke was legally drunk with a .13 blood alcohol level when she made the 911 call ... at 8:34 in the morning.

To Zizi - Do you really believe all of this is because of Charlie's opinions pertaining to the 911 attacks? That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard! He is an idiot who needs to grow up and start acting like a man instead of a spoiled brat who thinks he is entitled to do anything he wants. He has been married 3 times and all of his wives have accused him of some kind of abuse. He also has a very long history of drug and alcohol abuse. He has the morals of an alley cat! Someone needs to take him down and get him fixed so he won't be able to have any more children, who probably suffer tremendously because of his behavior. He did the wrong thing. PERIOD. Everyone has consequences to their actions, even him!

if I understand this, his lawyers are worried he'll mess up during the two-year probation and result in a longer sentence, so they want him to spend 30 days in jail and be done with his punishment.



them, what cures him of his bad behavior? and, like claudine longet, he probably won't serve the full sentence.



the lawyers should serve the time as well.
