After nearly two hours in a room adjacent to the court, both sides talked with Judge James Boyd. Both parties, including Sheen, left the meeting “stern-faced.” Later, Judge Boyd addressed the actor in open court, asking whether he would wave his right to a speedy trial. Sheen responded, “yes.”

Sheen was arrested in December after Brooke Mueller called 911 regarding a fight she and Sheen had. She told police the actor pinned her on a bed, put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her saying: “You better be in fear. If you tell anybody, I’ll kill you.” Sheen was formally charged with felony menacing and two misdemeanors: 3rd degree assault and criminal mischief. Menacing, the most serious charge, carries a sentence of one to three years in prison.
