Brooke Mueller

Options to Avoid Jail

'On the Table' in Aspen

12/7/2011 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There's more than a good chance Brooke Mueller will not see another day in the pokey for her felony drug bust in Aspen ... according to law enforcement sources.

We're told that although Brooke allegedly had four grams of cocaine on her -- nothing to sneeze at, for sure -- it's still the lowest class of felony arrest. Also weighing in her favor is the fact she's a first time drug offender ... in the eyes of the law, anyway. Brooke had a 2001 coke arrest in Florida, but it was dropped.

It all adds up to the very real possibility of Brooke getting nothing more than probation -- instead of the max six years behind bars -- and, in fact, our sources say the Pitkin County DA would be willing to put that option "on the table."

Also possible -- and even better for Brooke -- is a deferral, which means if she's a good girl for an agreed upon probationary period... the charge will be dismissed as if it never happened.

Brooke's attorney Yale Galanter tells TMZ he's already pushing for the best possible outcome ... something he's familiar with in Aspen. Galanter famously pulled Charlie Sheen's bacon from the fire after his arrest there.

Honestly for a first time drug charge she should get a year in rehab as its clear she has issues and the chance to have the felony reduced AFTER completing probation. Now that’s how it should work for EVERYBODY but we all know that’s not the case. Especially due to mandatory minimums for possession of crack which sends thousands of poor citizens packing to prison. Talking about have the felony reduced after completing probation that’s what should of happened to Lindsay Lohan but we all know she is the poster child for buying the system.

I really dont know why cops bother arresting any celebrity. A bunch of paperwork for nothing. Just so a stupid D.A. can cut a deal. where is the incentive for a cop to do his job. They bust em....the DA cuts em. Brilliant waste of time and money. I guess coke is ok??

Once again it seems as long as you have at least slept with a celebrity that you can get off on drug charges with nothing more then a slap on the wrist. If this was an everyday run of the mill woman she would be behind bars in a split second. I guess the great state of Colorado is taking judicial tips from California.

This must be why the stars keep flocking to Aspen--the law there allows them to get away with everything.

When will people wake up and realize jail is the best rehab program for addicts like Lohan and Mueller?

Her attorney will get her informal probation so Brooke wont even have to be bothered with the probation dept.

It’s a recipe for disaster when you’re rich enough to feed your addiction, and the only people in your life are enablers and co dependents.

Brooke’s mother is as bad of an enabler as Dina Lohan.
This is what Brookes mother had to say about Christmas morning 2009 when Brooke blew .14 …
“Come on, man,” she said, “it was Christmas Eve. Of course, they’ll have a drink.”

NICOLE - where are you? Here's a new cause to champion. Linds is old news - try defending this little angel for a while. Us "little people" enjoy your psychosis, but Linds is in hiding until the Playboy check clears. Has there been some kind of eclipse in your world? Hope not.... we need entertainment. Please don't disappoint.

On Sept. 13, 1996, a Palm Beach police officer spotted a 19-year-old Mueller driving erratically, according to the police report obtained by E! Online. Driving with three other passengers, Mueller crashed her Chevy Corsica into a road sign. She was arrested for driving under the influence and causing damage to property, but the case against her was ultimately dropped, according to the entertainment website.


Mueller was arrested again in Florida on March 2001 for cocaine possession, according to a police report. That charge was eventually dropped as well, as tests showed she had no drugs in her system, according to E! Online.

CELEBRITIES get away with everything! Normal people would get the 6 years. This IDIOT obviously has a drug problem and she will get away with it. She will never learn until she is dead.... Snort away Brooke!

No. Brooke wasn't dealing coke. She can do 4 grams up one side. She uses cocaine as a condiment. Just like Linds and DUIna.
