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.

This is confusing to me, there are many repeat offenders out there of these sort of crimes. It seems to me that laws were made to protect people, and no one is protecting the public from this woman or protecting herself from herself. If she would have done jail time the first time she was arrested maybe that would have been enough to set her straight and she wouldn't be a repeat offender. My son has the problems along the same line and there is no punishment so he is out there being a danger to the public. I have had him in rehabs, well they don't work for everyone. Sometimes you need something like so me jail time to scare someone straight.

Obviously this woman can't stay sober. Everyone knows what is going to happen. She will go to "rehab" once more, get out and start using all over again. As long as people bail her out and coddle her she will never get off drugs. Brooke comes from a very wealthy family and is well aware that the rules don't apply to her, that is why she will never get better. Maybe a good year in jail will wake her up.

No surprise. Another case of Hollywood justice. The sickening part of this is she still gets to raise her kids. We will be reading about their problems when they get older. Their future is bleak by having parents who use drugs and only care about themselves.

If this were a minority male who had been arrested with 4 grams of cocaine, not only would his bail be set at $250K cash only bond, he would face 2 - 4 years in prison after a speedy trial. Just saying -

Of course with the high price lawyer they get away with everything. The justice system is to blame. Rehab will not ever help her, she is just drug addict that will never learn until she kills herself!!! Brooke you are a disgusting loser, and a horrible mother.

A witness to the arrest who didn’t want to be identified, said Mueller was allegedly intoxicated and irate, yelling, “Call my attorney. .... Call the LAPD. ... Call whoever. ... I run this town,” as she was led down the pedestrian mall in handcuffs.

Sure Brooke, you never do anything wrong . . . . never have a part to play in anything! It's always everyone else doing you wrong. I have 20 years clean . . if I can get my sh-t together, you can too.
