Charlie Sheen has been ordered to enter a rehabilitation facility for 30 days in his trial. The actor, who was charged with a misdemeanor assault after a domestic violence incident on Christmas Day while holidaying with his wife in Colorado, pleaded guilty to the charges in exchange for a plea deal, FOX News reports. The more serious charges against Charlie, namely felony menacing and criminal mischief misdemeanor, were dropped.
In light of his pleading, the judge in the case has sentenced the 44-year-old actor to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, as well as 90 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management.
“I’m very grateful to the court and to the people of Pitkin County,” RadarOnline.com quotes Charlie as saying in a statement. “I look forward to complying with the court’s decision, getting on with my life and putting this behind me.”
Charlie is reportedly set to begin his stint in rehab at the Promises Clinic. According to his lawyer, Charlie has already spent 93 days at the institution this year.
“Credit for time served is absolutely on the table,” his lawyer said. “How much credit he gets is up to Promises.”
This isn’t the first time the ‘Two And A Half Men’ star has been in trouble with the law in regards to domestic violence with his partner. He famously accidentally shot ex-girlfriend Kelly Preston in the arm in 1990, and his divorce from Bond Girl Denise Richards in 2005 became messy when details like the fact he reportedly threatened to kill her and mentally and physically abused her surfaced.
