Charlie Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller got help from the Aspen non-profit group Response, which assists victims of domestic violence, has confirmed.

Mueller, who told police she was assaulted by Sheen on Christmas Day, visited the group before going to court Monday to come-up with a “safety-plan” aimed at rebuilding the couple’s shattered relationship.

Formed in 1993, Response provides assistance for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

It states that its mission is: “To end interpersonal violence by providing support and direct services to survivors of domestic violence and / or sexual assault and to educate the community on related issues.”

A spokesperson for Response told “I cannot speak about specific cases or people but we do have ‘safety plans’ which help couples who have experienced violence or other problems in their relationship.”

At Monday’s court appearance District Attorney Arnold Mordkin filed three charges against Sheen: felony menacing, third degree assault (a misdemeanor) and criminal mischief (also a misdemeanor).

Interestingly, Sheen wore his wedding ring while his wife did not, as the pair arrived and left separately from Pitkin County Court.

But it’s clear the couple has decided to stay together, even though multiple sources told they are miserable in their marriage.

Judge James Boyd agreed to modify the existing restraining order acknowledging that it was ‘her desire’ (Mueller) for him to do so.

But Judge Boyd left in some provisions of the order, prohibiting Sheen from intimidating or harassing Mueller. Sheen also cannot consume alcohol, illegal drugs or possess firearms; the actor was told he would be held in contempt of court if he breached any of these provisions.

Judge Boyd asked Mueller’s lawyer Yale Galanter if his client was comfortable with the “safety plan”.

He responded: “She is. She met with Response (a local organization for battered women) this morning. She is satisfied.”

Outside  court Galanter added: “Brooke’s position is she would like the charges to be dismissed and the case to be over.

“What happens after today is anyone’s guess – we all need to let them get on with their lives.”

The lawyer also told reporters outside the court that the couple would start living together ‘right now’ and that he did not know why Mueller was not wearing her wedding band while Sheen was.

Sources have confirmed to Radar Online that Mueller has been staying at her mother’s home in Colorado and it’s expected that Sheen will stay with her at this house Monday night before they fly to Los Angeles together and try and rebuild their troubled marriage.

Mueller told police that Sheen held a knife to her throat on Christmas and threatened to kill her. Police discovered that Mueller had threatened to divorce Sheen and never let him see their infant twins.

Both had been drinking in the morning and both have been through rehab. Sources who know Charlie and Brooke tell that need is keeping them together.

“Charlie needs Brooke right now because if she turns on him she can send him to prison,” one source told “And Brooke needs Charlie because without him she can’t live the lifestyle of a celebrity, plus she has a prenuptial agreement that won’t pay her a lot of money.”

Mueller hired Galanter to help her out of the situation. She doesn’t want to face charges of lying to the police but she also doesn’t want to send her husband to prison and cripple herself financially.
