It looks like Brooke Mueller will not serve a single day in jail for her latest arrest for her felony drugs possession and assault in Aspen. There are a number of other options on the table for her, according to law enforcement sources.
Brooke allegedly had four grams of cocaine on her at the time she was detained by the police. That is no small amount in terms of arrests. In fact, she could get up to six years in jail for it. But law enforcement officers close to the case say she likely will not get a custodial sentence.
Because, get this, despite Brooke’s long and very well known history with illegal substances, this would be her first ever arrest for a drugs offence. Brooke had a 2001 coke arrest in Florida, but it was dropped.
Amazing really, isn’t it, that Mueller has never before been arrested in connection with drugs?
So, although serious, her drugs possession is still the lowest class of felony arrest. As a first time drug offender, at least in the eyes of the law, it is likely that Brooke will get nothing more than probation.
The Pitkin County DA has apparently stated that he would be willing to put that option “on the table.”
Even better for Brooke, she may get a deferral, which means if she stays out of trouble for an agreed upon probationary period, the charge will be dismissed and things will be as if it never happened.
Brooke’s attorney Yale Galanter says he is already pushing for the best possible outcome. He’s good at that. He got Charlie Sheen out of trouble in Aspen too.
