Charlie Sheen's plea deal with prosecutors allowed him to avoid jail time for a Christmas Day assault on his wife and also won't require him to do public service around the tony resort town of Aspen.
The actor pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor third-degree assault in exchange for prosecutors dropping two other more serious charges, including a felony charge of menacing. He was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management, according to The Associated Press.
His career was affected because of this. In February, this year, he announced that he would take a break from "Two and a Half Men" to enter a rehab facility. This decision was made after Brooke entered a rehab clinic.
On May 18, 2010, Sheen signed an agreement to be back on set for "Two and a Half Men" for another two years, Execte News reports.
