Charlie Sheen Ready to Cop a Plea to ... Something

by at . Comments

Charlie Sheen is prepared to plead guilty following his drunken Christmas melee with wife Brooke Mueller. The only thing left is to hammer out the logistics.

The prosecution in the assault case is reportedly not looking for jail time, but wants Sheen to either cop a guilty plea to a felony or stand trial for the attack.

The Two and a Half Men star is more than willing to plead guilty or no contest to a misdemeanor with no jail time, which means this boils down to one issue:

Whether Charlie pleads to a misdemeanor or a felony. Charlie's position is that Aspen, Colo., prosecutors routinely accept misdemeanor pleas in such cases.

Charlie and Brooke have been through a lot lately.

Sheen also wants the case dismissed outright at the end of the probationary period, which is likely to span a year or more. So what's the hangup here?

The Aspen D.A. is reluctant to let Charlie already off too easily.

In 1997, the troubled star pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery in a domestic violence case involving then-girlfriend Brittany Ashland. That's an issue.

The Aspen D.A. feels that given Charlie's history, a felony is appropriate. So his fate in the Brooke Mueller incident may involve more legal wrangling yet.

Stay tuned ...
