Brooke Mueller to Avoid Jail in Drug Case

by at . Comments

Felony, schmelony. Brooke Mueller is unlikely to spend any time in jail due to her recent arrest for cocaine possession.

Sources tell TMZ that Mueller's attorney is hammering out a plea bargain with Colorado prosecutors that will result in a "deferred prosecution" for his client. Translation: she will be forced to perform community service and take drug education classes as the result of her December 2 arrest - but will avoid prison altogether.

Mueller was arrested in late 2011 for allegedly assaulting a woman in a nightclub. A count of felony possession of cocaine with intent to distribute was tacked on last week, but Charlie Sheen's ex-wife is simply due in court on April 2, insiders confirm.

At that point, unless negotiations between lawyers fall apart, she will enter a plea and receive a light sentence. Raise your hand if you're surprised.
