Charlie Sheen will enter a NOT GUILTY plea when he returns to court in Colorado next month, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
While both Sheen and his wife Brooke Mueller’s lives continue to unravel in California, his lawyer in Colorado Richard Cummins believes that he can prevent the actor from going to jail.
The Two And a Half Men star was charged with a felony misdemeanor charge of menacing and misdemeanor charges of third degree assault and criminal mischief after an alleged Christmas Day assault and could face years in prison.
But Cummins says Sheen did nothing wrong and told a RadarOnline source he won’t even accept a plea bargain.
He said: “We have not entered a plea yet but we would be entering a plea of not guilty and certainly would not enter into any disposition that contemplated a felony because no felony occurred.”
Mueller originally told cops that her husband had threatened to kill her and held a knife to her throat during the early morning attack on Christmas Day.
She has subsequently checked back into a rehab while her husband refuses to get help amid rumors that his boozing is getting out of control.
Cummins added: “If she is seeking some kind of treatment, my understanding is that both Brooke and Charlie are in the same camp working towards the same goals and working in the same direction.
I don’t think we look at anything she is doing in regard as any advantage because they are not adversarial toward one another.”
“They’re working toward keeping their family together and they are working on their relationship,” Cumming revealed. “The District Attorney is making every effort to treat this case in the same way he would treat every other case – he has done that and I think that will continue to be the case.
Hopefully, there will be a disposition that worked out that advances everyone’s interest.”
Despite everything Cummins is saying, RadarOnline.com has learned that Colorado District Attorney Arnold Mordkin is concerned about reports that Sheen is drinking again and by doing so could be breaking his bail bond arrangements.
