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.

Why is Charlie involved with a girl with a drinking problem?Can't he have a relationship with a smart woman who respects herself and isn't a drinker?I can't imagine a woman with high self esteem becoming involved with him anyway.

Charlie Sheen should go to jail.
He is an abuser of women.
He is not above the law.
If it was just an ordinary guy,
he'd be in a cell by now.
He has a sickness that can only
be cured if he is punished for acting
like a coward by hurting women, and
disgracing his mother and family with
his unmanly behaivor.
It takes a juvenile to do what he's done
to others and someone should have the
courage to do the right thing.

Okay, so he's got legal problems and is facing jail time. Even though he is a "celebrity" by society's standards, I think his legal problems are none of our business. It falls into the ctegory of "PERSONAL" ISSUES. Even he is a "celebrity" he is still allowed to have some privacy. It's just too bad the LAME-stream media thought his problems were newsworthy. If any of this happened to an "average" citizen, noone would give a damn!

I love Charlie Sheen as an actor and his current show is great, thanks to his "brother", his "nephew", his "mother" and the "housekeeper". He's good too, of course, obviously playing himself in real life. It's funny in a TV show, but not so funny in real life. He says he's thinking of leaving the show...even though it's getting great ratings. That, too, shows his lack of consideration for his fellow actors...he obviously doesn't give a damn about their jobs or futures. Maybe they should write him out of the show for awhile, while he goes to rehab (in real life). That way, the show could continue and I'm sure it could be just as funny without him (believe it or not, Charlie!). In fact, maybe they could write him out completely and get someone else to replace him....a long lost cousin or something....there are certainly plenty of wonderful actors who could fit in very nicely! Shame on you, Charlie! Grow up!

He will get "disturbing the peace" plea and 10 days ankle braclet at home.No actual jail time..lol Expunge will just change to "Not Guilty" after completion of probation "not erased". D.V. cases are a joke, rank in big $$ for the state, and yes you can easily be arrested on hearsay thanks to OJ. Take it trial charlie call D.A. bluff,your payin good $ for your lawyer make him work for it lol.
