A judge has modified a protective order allowing actor Charlie Sheen and his wife, Brooke, to see each other as Sheen faces domestic violence allegations.
Prosecutors filed charges of felony menacing, third-degree assault and criminal mischief against Sheen stemming from his arrest Dec. 25 at his Aspen home. He faces up to three years in prison on the menacing charge.
He did not enter a plea Monday. Further proceedings are scheduled March 15.
Brooke Sheen sat in the front row of the gallery during the hearing. The couple hugged after the hearing and left the courthouse in separate vehicles.
Brooke Sheen's attorney, Yale Galanter, said the couple will head back to Los Angeles on the same plane.
