Repeat offenders Sheen, Sizemore and Penn — what got them in trouble, what could happen to them
The coming weeks are going to be mighty busy for the old guard of Hollywood’s bad boys.
On Monday, at 2:15 p.m., the day before he returns to work on "Two and a Half Men" after a stint in rehab, Carlos Estevez (Charlie Sheen’s real name) will be in Aspen facing domestic violence charges. They stem from a Christmas Day confrontation between the actor and his wife, Brooke Mueller. If found guilty, he could face up to five years in jail.
Then, on March 18, Tom Sizemore goes on trial in downtown L.A. on domestic battery charges as the result of an incident near downtown on Aug. 5. Sizemore was on the last season of “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew” and appears in the new season of VH1’s “Sober House,” which debuts Thursday night.
Sean Penn — who starred in 1983’s reform-school drama "Bad Boys" — was scheduled to be arraigned on March 22 on misdemeanor charges of battery and vandalism from a heated encounter with paparazzi last October. On Tuesday, his lawyers were granted a continuance to have that arraignment pushed back to April 22 at the Airport courthouse near LAX.
Each is a repeat offender.
