His first option includes pleading guilty to a misdemeanor and serving 30 days in an Aspen jail. If he enters the plea as early as June 7, he would immediately being serving his time, which could be lowered to 17 days with good behavior.
Other options include receiving a "deferred prosecution," which means the case would not move forward, however Charlie would have to agree to several conditions, including not breaking the law. And we all know how hard that is for Charlie, so option #2 might not be the best idea!!
The other option would have Charlie plead guilty to a misdemeanor, but instead of agreeing to a short jail sentence, he'd be on probation for 2 years, which is a concern for Charlie's reps because if he does slip up, he'd be serving a much longer sentence than just 30 days.
And finally, he can just take the case to trial and fight it, which might not be the best idea. Sources are saying that Charlie is upset that Tito Ortiz got away with what he thinks was a lot worse than what he allegedly did to his wife.
He should just plead guilty and do the time!
