Charlie Sheen

The Sweetest Deal Ever

... Maybe

8/2/2010 2:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the Charlie Sheen case tell TMZ the plea bargain is still a 50/50 toss up, hours before today's court hearing ... but one thing is certain -- Charlie will not do jail time.

Sources tell TMZ there are two options on the table between Charlie's lawyer, Yale Galanter, and prosecutors. We're told neither option includes jail time, and very little or no probation.

But it gets even better for Charlie ... he will plead no contest to a misdemeanor -- not a felony, and his work schedule on "Two and a Half Men" will not be affected in any way.

We're told Charlie is in the air right now flying to Aspen, where he and Galanter will meet with prosecutors before going to court.

If they cannot strike a deal, we're told both sides will ask for a trial date when they appear in court at 3:00PM PDT.

If a deal is struck it will be a remarkable feat that Yale Galanter -- who also reps Brooke Mueller -- orchestrated a deal for Charlie that is beyond sweet.

Guess it's a good thing for Charlie that the chick rejected his work release from the jail deal. She thought he was getting off too easy before, but she made sure that he gets off even easier, now. Nice job.

Listen up peoples. This is not brain surgery.

When you find yourself in a jamb - and sooner or later all of us do eventually find ourselves in a jamb... all you have to do is find out who the judge's buddies are AND HIRE ONE OF THOSE GUYS.

In a more complicated case where it would be obvious that you have hired the judge's buddy, you hire an attorney AND then hire the buddy to work the back door.

Can't afford to do that, you say???

Well then. Plan ahead folks.

Otherwise...

You gonna go to jail.

Public knowledge about Charlie:

He shot Kelly Preston in the arm when they were engaged;
he beat wife Denise Richards;
he held a knife to wife Brooke's throat and threatened her life

This piece of living garbage will see the inside of a jail cell when he finally kills a woman. Sadly, not if, but when, IMO.

Why is he still around? He was given a golden oppurtunity to be an A lister in Hollywood when he starred in Platoon and Wall Street- it has been all down hill since then. Oh well, I am sure he is due to OD on drugs or have another car wreck sometime in the next 3 months.

And let's not forget how he illegally purchased dozens of prostitutes from Heidi Fleiss' stable and never even got charged.
This guy always seems to skate from any serious charges, even tho he is a repeat offender.
Chris Brown got a much worse punishment as a first time offender - and he didn't even use a gun like Charlie did!!
Boycott 2 1/2 Men. I think the cast would be just fine w/o Charlie.
Charlie Sheen will be another O.J. in a few years - and everyone will be saying "Well gee, maybe we should have punished him back then!"

He drinks, so what! He smokes, so what! He likes prostitutes, so what! He's the highest paid actor on television because he's hilarious! And he's laughing all the way to the bank! He's never tried to be anybody's role model! All of you Charlie bashers are just jealous! And this is coming from a 53 year old woman. My husband and I are looking forward to the 8th season of Two and a Half Men, which we will eventually buy the DVD to add to our complete collection! Go! Charlie!

Absolutely disgusting. The man is an abuser, but because he's a celeb he gets off easy. Sickening.

@15

He has not been accused of beating multiple women. Denise Richards openly admitted that Sheen never hit her.

Where is the justice?
