It's Curtains for Charlie Sheen!

6/5/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen will serve part of his jail sentence at a theater in Aspen ... TMZ has learned.

0604_charlie_sheen_ex
We broke the story ... Charlie is eligible for work release while he serves his 30-day sentence for 3rd degree misdemeanor assault.

We've learned Charlie will work at Theatre Aspen, a renowned professional theater, where he will coach actors, help in the fundraising department and perform various other tasks.  Although it is work release, Charlie will not accept a salary. 

We're told Charlie will still be considered an inmate at the jail.  He will be free to leave jail at 8 AM for work every day but he must return by 8 PM.

We're told the Pitkin County Sheriff's Department has given its nod of approval, but the work release must be approved by the judge.

Charlie will be in court Monday at 4 PM, where the plea bargain and work release plan will be formally submitted to the judge.  Assuming all goes well, Charlie will check in at the jail later that day.

Charlie Sheen is not a murderer and he's not an obnoxious, arrogant "I'll do as I want " celeb; he'll be putting in full days of (free)service to the community and spending his nights in a jail cell. For the offense, I think this punishment sounds fine.

WHAT A JOKE! This violent, abusive sicko gets off EASY every single time! This is sickening. This is NOT punishment, working for/in theater is FUN, Charlie is basically getting a vacation for being an abuser. This should not be allowed. If this joker would have to serve some hard time maybe he would straighten up. He has made a joke out of the legal system, they should be ashamed for allowing this. Only good thing, guaranteed, Charlie WILL screw up again, that is a fact, and hopefully doesn't kill someone the next time; then hope he will be put away where this violent abuser belongs. Any fool supporting him and watching his stupid show that should not even be on the air, is an idiot. CBS should be held responsible for this jerk if he does something again as they won't fire him and keep hiring him. Ban CBS, I am, I couldn't care less about their stupid shows.

Wow. How sweet is that. Don't have to leave till 8 am, which is better than 7 or 6 as far as the beauty sleep goes. And don't have to return till 8 pm. Plenty of time for dinner and a bottle of wine at a nice restaurant. And the wine makes you sleepy, so you're knocked out by 9/9:30. Hardly even know you're in jail cause all you're doing while you're their is sleeping. Way to go, Charlie!

I'd be smiling to if I had held a knife to my wife's throat and then spent my "vacation" goofing off in a theater. Ohhhhh...the horrors. The guy should have to do his time period. Not out running around like he did nothing at all. It's pretty bad when his lawyers or even he himself doesn't trust that he could make it through a two year probation without screwing up so that tells it all right there. He needs to do the time in real jail, not pretend jail.

This judge and others around the county like him(see Van der Sloot case) are the reason women get killed by these re offending pieces of crap that get slaps on the wrist. In my opinion it's time to bring back tar and feathering for these judicial idiots, and there should be an automatic life sentence for being an acomplice when the human garbage they let loose kill, rape or kidnap again, for letting them back out on the street. It's time to start holding these sanctimonius legal lizards responsable.
