ASPEN – A hearing on a possible plea deal for Charlie Sheen in his domestic abuse case in Aspen has been delayed until next month.

Lawyers met Monday at the courthouse, with prosecutors saying they needed more time to work out the agreement.

Pitkin County Chief Deputy District Attorney Arnold Mordkin didn’t elaborate.

Yale Galanter, a lawyer for Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller Sheen, says Sheen had reached a deal to plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge.

Galanter says the deal would include a 30-day jail sentence, and that Sheen would be able to leave during the day to work at a theater company.

Mordkin wouldn’t confirm details but didn’t dispute media reports about the work release arrangement.
