Getting on with it….
Charlie Sheen pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor assault charge in his domestic violence case and was ordered to 30 days in rehab as part of a plea deal at a court hearing in Aspen, Colo. In exchange, two other charges were dropped.
The actor was also sentenced to three months probation and must complete 36 hours of domestic violence counseling.
Sheen appeared upbeat in the courtroom. Asked to enter a plea, he told the judge, “Guilty as charged your honor.” Asked why he was submitting that plea, Sheen replied, “Because I’m guilty.”
The actor added in a statement following the sentencing: “I’m very grateful to the court and to the people of Pitkin County. I look forward to complying with the court’s decision, getting on with my life and putting this behind me.”
Sheen’s lawyer, Yale Galanter, is pleased with the case’s outcome, saying, “Charlie got a great sentence, and I am privileged to have been able to do this for him.”
The Two and a Half Men star, 44, will be back at work on the set of his hit sitcom Tuesday working on the first episode of the new season. So probably he got a raise, and decided to say yes to more work after all…..?!
Earlier this year he said that being on set reminded him of being a lost cause… (or did he remember?)
