Aspen – No decision on Sheen charges likely till February

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Prosecutors say they probably won’t decide until February whether to file charges against actor Charlie Sheen in an alleged domestic violence case in Aspen.

Sheen was arrested Christmas Day on suspicion of menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief. Authorities haven’t identified the alleged victim.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin said Monday the menacing charge is the most serious, usually carrying a sentence of two to eight years in prison and a fine of $2,000 to $500,000.



Mordkin says Sheen’s next court appearance is Feb. 8, and no decision on whether to prosecute him is expected until shortly before that.

The 44-year-old star of “Two and a Half Men” is free on $8,500 bond. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a call Monday.
