Yale Galanter, one of Sheen's attorneys, has previously said that Sheen has agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in exchange for prosecutors dropping more serious charges.

Galanter previously said the agreement calls for Sheen to serve 30 days in jail.

Sheen had been scheduled to plead guilty at a hearing in June, but that hit a snag with a disagreement over terms of a proposed work release program.

Sheen, star of "Two and a Half Men" on CBS, is charged with felony menacing, criminal mischief and assault against his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen. He is the highest paid actor on TV.
