Charlie Sheen pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor assault charge in his domestic violence case and was ordered to 30 days in rehab as part of a plea deal at a court hearing in Aspen, Colo. In exchange, two other charges were dropped.
The actor was also sentenced to three months probation and must complete 36 hours of domestic violence counseling.
Sheen appeared upbeat in the courtroom. Asked to enter a plea, he told the judge, “Guilty as charged your honor.” Asked why he was submitting that plea, Sheen replied, “Because I’m guilty.”
