Charlie Sheen escaped going to the slammer for a whole month!
He was expected to plead "no contest" to a misdemeanor assault today and be sentenced to 30 days in jail.
But, according to TMZ, the prosecutor wanted more time to iron out the fine print of the plea deal, and the hearing has been postponed until next month.
Prosecutor Arnold Mordkin said in court, "We need more time than is available for us to complete some of the finer points [of the plea deal]."
Sheen will now return to court on July 12th at 4pm.
Charlie's estranged wife Brooke Mueller was nowhere in sight, but than again we haven't seen them together for months!
Interesting turn of events! We thought Charlie was getting a pretty cush plea deal, so maybe the prosecutor decided they were being a little too easy on him! We'll have to wait and see what happens next month!
