More details on Charlie Sheen's expected plea deal
Under the agreement, according to Sheen's attorney Yale Galanter, the actor would be allowed to participate in a work-release program, leaving jail every morning at 8 a.m. and returning by 8 p.m., L.A. Now reports. His work release would be with the nonprofit Theatre Aspen, as detailed earlier today on this blog.
TMZ adds that Sheen could do meet-and-greets for theater fundraising, in addition to coaching actors and helping with the summer season productions.
Total time likely to be served? About 17 days, TMZ reports, assuming time off for good behavior and a sentence of 30 days.
All that, of course, pending the judge's approval of the deal.
