ASPEN, COLO. (AP) - Charlie Sheen is expected to plead guilty to a charge stemming from a Christmas Day dispute with his wife in Aspen, Colo.

The “Two and a Half Men” actor is expected to appear in court Monday. Sheen attorney Yale Galanter has said that he agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in exchange for prosecutors dropping more serious charges.

But a spokesman for the Colorado court system says no paperwork on a proposed deal had been filed as of an hour before the hearing.

Galanter has said an agreement called for a 30-day jail sentence. Sheen was to plead guilty in June, but hit a snag over terms of a proposed work release program.

Sheen is charged with felony menacing, criminal mischief and assault against his wife, Brooke Mueller Sheen.
