Charlie Sheen's Jail Break

6/4/2010 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Charlie Sheen may not be serving 30 days in jail ... only 30 nights.

Charlie Sheen Jail

An official in the Pitkin County jail tells us Charlie is eligible for work release  -- meaning he could do volunteer work in Aspen where he would spend his days, and come back to the jail to sleep at night.

We're told when Charlie goes to court on Monday to plea bargain his case, the judge can declare him eligible for work release.  Then it's up to the Sheriff to decide if Charlie meets the criteria for work release ... which includes working at a productive job in the community.  If the criteria is met, Charlie would get a daytime pass.

As we first reported, even though Charlie will plead no contest to 3rd degree misdemeanor assault and accept a 30-day sentence, he will only serve 17 days if he's a good boy and two of those days (the first and last) could be nothing more than a few minutes behind bars.

WHERES THE OUTCRY FROM THE PEOPLE HES A WOMANIZER! ITS BEEN WELL OVER A YR SINCE THE CHRIS BROWN/RIHANNA SITUATION, Y IS HE STILL DAMNED TO HELL EVEN THO HES DONE ALL THAT THE COURTS HAVE ASKED HIM. CHRIS PAID HIS DEBT TO SOCIETY N IS A TALENTED YOUNG MAN WHO MADE A MISTAKE AND HAS SINCE BEEN REHABILITATED. CHARLIE GOTTA KILL A BITCH HUH B4 HES DEEMED HARMFUL ENOUGH TO RECIEVE A MAJOR PUNISHMENT

Typical slap on the wrist token sentence for a celeb.



If Charlie beats his wife, he gets a nice summer vacation in Aspen courtesy of the taxpayers.



But as for the rest of you, don't beat your wife or it's curtains for YOU!

what's the point in even going to jail if you're just gonna sleep there? you don't have to be awake during the day and be bored and deal with other inmates.... sooo retarded!!!

Why frakking bother? I hate him, I hate Aspen. I hate celebrities and the wealthy who live by a different justice system. I have no problem with them having money, but that the courts roll over to accommodate them is completely unacceptable. Period.

***I THINK IT'S GREAT THAT HE DOES LESS TIME OR EASIER TIME. LET'S ALL BE REAL: HIS CRACKHEAD WIFE IS THE ONE WHO PRECIPITATED THE FIGHT AND I FOR ONE DO NOT BELIEVE HE 'PUT A KNIFE TO [BROOKE 'CRACKHEAD ALCOHOLIC' MUELLER] THROAT' AS MUELLER SAID. LET'S REMEMBER THAT THIS IS A WOMAN WITH SERIOUS SUBSTANCE ABUSE ISSUES AND SHE PROBABLY WAS NOT VERY LUCID THAT NIGHT FROM THE DRUGS HERSELF. BROOKE MUELLER SHOULD BE IN JAIL ALSO. GO CHARLIE!***

For those of you who think he got different treatment because he's a celebrity, I think you should know that most states have case law mandating that jail inmates who are not a flight risk be allowed to work outside the jail. They commonly return to jail in the late afternoon or evening, and they have to pass a preliminary screening by probation that verifies that they really have a job, where it is, what the work hours are, etc. They are then awarded full credit for spending a full day in jail. I'm not saying it's right or that I agree with it. Frankly, I don't. But Charlie Sheen didn't get a better deal than others. In fact, based on what I've seen over the last 10 years, he probably got a stiffer deal than other perpetrators of domestic violence.

Since when does sleeping in a bed qualify as being in jail? These judges should be shamed of themselves making these laughable deals. Then your watching cops those guys who slap around their wifes are taken away IMMEDIATELY IN HANDCUFFS AND KEPT IN JAIL.
