Prosecutor To Fight Sheen And Mueller Protection Order AppealBy WENN
Thursday, December 31, 2009
The prosecutor in CHARLIE SHEEN and BROOKE MUELLER’s domestic dispute case is planning to fight requests from both parties to dismiss the protection order which has been put in place to prevent the pair communicating.
The Two and a Half Men star was arrested on Christmas morning (25Dec09) after a nasty argument with Mueller in Aspen, Colorado.
Sheen faces charges of second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief over the incident, in which he is alleged to have threatened his wife with a knife, and he is due in court in February (10).
But Mueller is reportedly refusing to give up on her marriage and has asked a U.S. judge to grant them permission to contact each other “so they can work on resolving the conflicts in their marriage.”
However, Arnold Mordkin, Chief Deputy District Attorney in Pitkin County Colorado, is opposing lifting the order because officials want victims in alleged domestic violence cases to be protected.
Mordkin tells OK! magazine, “In the case of domestic violence, we do want the victim to have a safety plan in place. We always oppose lifting the protection order.?
A hearing will be held on Monday (04Jan10), although it is unclear whether the court date will result in a decision on the motion, or will set a date for the ruling.
