Charlie Sheen Squeaks By With No Jail Time

Charlie Sheen has avoided the slammer and probably won’t need to go to rehab or counseling to boot! The actor pleaded guilty to 3rd degree assault after a Christmas-day incident with ex Brooke Mueller, accepting his lesser charge. He faces three months’ probation,
counseling and a 30-day inpatient st
ay in a rehab facility…well, sort of.

He’ll still get the probation (already reduced from a 30 day stay in jail) but the counseling he’s off the hook for! He’ll get credit for anger-management counseling he did at Promises previously. Sheen, pictured at the Pitkin County Courthouse in Aspen, Colorado yesterday, will begin work on Two and a Half Men as early as this week! So while his previous plea deal hit a snag, looks like he came out just fine. Yuck.
