Charlie Sheen attorneys call cooling off period

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) – Attorneys have called a cooling off period to try to work out the details surrounding a possible plea deal in Charlie Sheen’s domestic abuse case.

Attorneys had planned to meet Tuesday in Aspen, but attorney Yale Galanter says they’ll meet at a later date.

Galanter, who represents Brooke Mueller Sheen, said Sheen has worked out an agreement to plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in exchange for dropping more serious charges against him. That deal calls for Sheen to serve a 30-day sentence and to be able to leave jail during the day to work at an Aspen theater company.

Sheen had been expected to enter his plea during a Tuesday court hearing but, after some last-minute negotiations, prosecutors asked for more time. The judge set a new hearing for July 12.
