Actor Charlie Sheen will spend 30 days at a rehab center in Malibu after pleading guilty to third-degree domestic violence for a confrontation with wife Brooke Mueller in December 2009.
Sheen pleaded guilty to a domestic abuse assault charge in exchange for the withdrawal of two other charges, including a felony.
Thanks to Sheen’s attorney, Yale Galanter, Sheen is only getting a 30-day stay at Promises (aka celeb rehab central) in Malibu, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of domestic violence and anger management counseling. Considering Sheen was facing jail time, this is a pretty sweet deal. Even better – Sheen has already completed the 36 hours of the domestic violence and anger management counseling. Oddly enough, Galanter also represented the victim in this case, Brooke Mueller, in the aftermath of Sheen’s arrest.
Sheen is expected back at work tomorrow on the Two and Half Men set. He has 30 days until he has to check into rehab.
