Two and a Half Criminal Charges

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

After a 911 call police showed up on Christmas day and arrested actor Charlie Sheen while he was on vacation in the ski resort town of Aspen, Colorado. According to the Associated Press the wife of the Two and a Half Men actor called regarding an incident with a knife and threats. An affidavit states that the wife was held down on a bed while Sheen threatened to kill her. An argument had developed after Brooke Mueller Sheen told him that she wanted a divorce and custody of their children. The possible charges are criminal mischief, menacing, second-degree assault and domestic violence. The AP article explains that the menacing charge can lead to two to eight years in prison and a fine of $2,000 to $500,000. Sheen was out on $8,500 bond. If this case had occurred in California the actor could have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon(Penal Code Section 245(a) (1)) for use of a knife and felony domestic violence(Penal Code sections 273.5 or 243(e) (1)). His exposure to prison time would have been similar to Colorado. Such an allegation could also effect child custody and visitation issues.
