Charlie Sheen could see jail time

HollywoodNews.com: Most people would choose probation over jail, right?

Not Charlie Sheen.

Actor Charlie Sheen seems to think jail would be a safer bet than trying to be good for two years.

The “Two and a Half Men” actor is working with his lawyers and the Aspen, Colorado, DA’s office to work out some sort of plea agreement. Originally, the agreement was that Sheen would plead guilty to a felony, but would face no jail time and would have been placed on probation for two years. At the end of the two years, his record would have been expunged.

Now, however, Sheen’s lawyers are reportedly considering changing the agreement so that Sheen pleads guilty or no contest to a misdemeanor and spends some time in the slammer, according to TMZ.com. After his jail time, he’d get a much shorter probation period, if any at all.

So why the change? TMZ’s source says that Sheen’s people are concerned that Sheen runs the risk of violating his probation sometime in the next two years, which would get him into serious trouble.

“There are a lot of ways to violate probation, and we don’t want Charlie doing something that in the next two years could land him in prison for a probation violation,” a source told TMZ.

Sheen was arrested in Aspen in December 2009 for charges of domestic violence against his wife, Brooke Mueller. His wife reportedly called 911 and told police that Sheen had put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.
