While Charlie Sheen is still most likely headed to the slammer, he may not have to spend as much time there as originally planned.
According to TMZ, Charlie may not be serving 30 days in jail, only 30 nights.
Charlie is eligible for work release, an official at the Aspen, Colo., jail told TMZ, which means he could get a job in Aspen, where he would spend his days, and then come back to the jail to sleep at night.
Charlie is scheduled to appear in court on Monday to plea-bargain his case, and the judge may declare that he be on work release.
Following the judge’s ruling, the ball moves into the sheriff’s court — who is left to decide if Charlie meets the criteria for work release.
According to TMZ, a work release would require that Charlie work at a productive job in the community and would give him a daytime pass.
The Two and a Half Men actor will be sentenced to 30 days and will plead no contest to third degree misdemeanor assault, but according to TMZ that will be reduced to 17 days.
