Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller have a date with a judge sooner than they thought.
We've learned the judge in the case will hear the motion to modify the protection order on January 20. The hearing is set for 9:00 AM.
As we first reported, Brooke and Charlie want the order -- which now prohibits any contact whatsoever between Charlie and Brooke -- to be modified so they can have contact.
Also, as we reported, Brooke wants to come back to L.A. to try and work things out with Charlie -- something we're told he wants as well.
The prosecutor has not decided if he will file domestic abuse charges against Sheen.
