    Brooke Mueller Strikes a Plea Deal Over Drug Charges, Avoids Jail Time

    Crime may not pay, but for Brooke Mueller it also doesn't seem to cost her all that much.

    Sources confirm to E! News that Charlie Sheen's ex-wife has successfully struck up a plea deal with the district attorney over last year's felony drug possession, intent to distribute and misdemeanor assault case, for which she will serve (ready for this?) not one day in jail.

    So what will happen?

    Rather than spend any time behind bars, Brooke will be placed on 12 months' probation in exchange for her plea, apparently so doled out thanks to her decision to enter into an intensive rehabilitation program (rather than undergo outpatient treatment) following her December arrest on the three charges.

    In exchange for her guilty plea on the possession charge, which is expected to be entered during her Monday hearing, the other two charges against her will be dropped. The plea will also be entered as a deferred judgment, which means that if she manages to stay out of trouble for the duration of her yearlong probation, the sole remaining charge will also be dismissed.

    Since nothing good ever seems to happen to the extended Sheen clan in Aspen, she may want to find somewhere else to holiday this year. Just for good measure.

    UPDATE: Mueller pleaded guilty on March 19 to felony drug possession in exchange for charges of assault and possession with intent to distribute getting dropped. Aspen District Attorney Arnold Mordkin tells E! News that she cannot violate her probation "anywhere in the world" if she wants to stay out of jail.

    Official sentencing is scheduled for May 7.
