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.
