Charlie Sheen

May Serve Jail Time

in Plea Deal

5/28/2010 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Charlie Sheen's lawyers and prosecutors have reached an agreement on four different options for resolving his domestic violence case ... and one involves serious jail time -- and now it's all up to Charlie to choose one.

Multiple sources connected with the case tell us ... these are the options the D.A. in Aspen and Charlie's lawyers have hammered out.

OPTION 1:  Charlie will plead guilty to a misdemeanor and serve 30 days in Aspen jail.  Charlie could enter the plea as early as June 7 in Aspen and would then immediately begin serving his time.  With good behavior, that time could be whittled down to 17 days.  After he serves his sentence, the case would be over.  Charlie would not be placed on probation.

OPTION 2:  Charlie would plead guilty to a misdemeanor and receive no jail time, but would be placed on 2 years probation.  We're told Charlie's people worry that the actor might slip up and the judge could then throw the book at him and Charlie would end up in jail for a much longer period than 30 days.

OPTION 3:  Charlie would receive a "deferred prosecution" -- meaning the case would not go forward but Charlie would agree to various conditions -- including not breaking the law.  After a certain period of time -- if Charlie complies with the conditions -- the matter would be expunged from his record.

OPTION 4:  Go to trial and fight it.  Charlie, we're told, is upset at the Tito Ortiz case ... where the UFC star did not even get prosecuted for allegedly doing a lot worse than Charlie allegedly did.

We're told Charlie has not decided which option he will take.  It's all in his hands.

Option 5: One round with Tito...winner goes home.



PS when Charlie gets mad at wife...he beats her.
When he gets mad at Tito...he beats her again.

Truth    

Take number 1.



Go sit around in jail for a couple of weeks and then it all is forgotten. Don't take probation of any kind because that will come back on ya.

One: Charlie isn't dealing with the sissy district attorney's in CA that plead out everything, and if they did take it to trial in CA the jury would be too stupid to convict any celeb.



TWO: TMZ really, those are the options most everyone faces. How is this a story? The only option you didn't give was trial by a Judge rather than a jury.



Perhaps Charlis should have taken her on vacation to Mexico, like um, the survivor producer.

Option #3 = what a joke. So basically if he chooses that, he isn't punished at all.
What a court system.

It will obviously be option 1. They will then put him on house arrest instead due to overcrowded jails where he will still serve half time for good behavior. That is celeb justice.

Go to jail Charlie, and if you do, I pray your ugly, pasty, women beating ass is shanked to death. I hope a fellow inmate drives a shank so far in you that it comes out the other side. You are a fugly, wretched, vile piece of ****, that will be met with a violent death. It's the least the good Lord could do.



Other than that, happy Friday everybody.
