ASPEN, Colo. — Charlie Sheen is expected to plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in his domestic violence case and work at a local theater company during a 30-day jail sentence, his wife’s attorney said today.

In exchange, prosecutors would drop felony menacing and criminal mischief charges stemming from an argument he had with his wife, Brooke, on Christmas Day at an Aspen home where they were on vacation, said the attorney, Yale Galanter.

Galanter said the deal calls for Sheen to serve a 30-day jail sentence and serve three months probation. During his jail term, he said Sheen will be released during the day so he can work at a local theater company.

Prosecutors confirmed last week that Sheen reached a plea agreement in the case, but no details have been released.

Sheen is expected to appear in a Colorado court for a hearing later today.

The star of the hit CBS show “Two and a Half Men” has pleaded not guilty to menacing, criminal mischief and assault charges. The menacing charge is a felony that carries a prison sentence of up to three years.

Sheen agreed last month to return to “Two and a Half Men” for two more seasons.
