Lindsay Lohan might want to get the services of Charlie Sheen’s lawyers for her next run-in with the law – because even after Sheen pleaded guilty to domestic violence charges he is not likely to spend even a minute in jail or do any community service for the people of Aspen, Colorado.
Yes, the “Two and a Half Men” lead star pleaded guilty on Monday to misdemeanor third-degree assault in exchange for a deal with the prosecutors to drop two other more serious charges, including a felony charge of menacing.
Sheen was then sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management BUT he is not likely to spend time doing the first nor the third punishment.
According to Sheen’s lawyers, the actor has already spent 93 days at Promises Treatment Center in California and the treatment facility can choose to credit that to his sentence.
Moreover, his lawyers said Sheen has already spent 36 hours in anger management classes as well, so it will be up to the 9th Judicial District probation department to decide if it can be applied to his Colorado case.
The fate of Sheen’s 30 days probation is still unclear, but even if he went through it I’m sure it will be a breeze compared to what he could have been made to endure if not for the excellent work of his lawyers.
