Charlie Sheen could serve jail time for domestic violence case

Hollywoodnews.com: Charlie Sheen has a few options now that his lawyers have hammered out agreements with prosecutors in his ongoing domestic violence dispute. And with the four options on the table, one of them includes jail time. Now it’s up to Sheen to decide which avenue he’d like to pursue.

TMZ reports that Sheen would have to serve 30 days in an Aspen jail if he decides to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge. He could enter the plea as early as June 7 in Aspen. However, the time spent could be reduced to 17 days with good behavior. The benefit? Sheen would not receive probation.

The other options, spelled out on the site, carry at least 2 years probation, and Sheen — according to his people — is afraid he might slip up and face more serious charges and potentially longer prison sentences.

So what should the “Two and a Half Men” star do? Serve the time? Accept probation and avoid a life of crime? Decisions will have to be made quickly, so stay tuned for further developments.
