Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen's plea deal hit a snag on Monday when the case was postponed to July.

Sheen had been expected to plead guilty at an Aspen court to a reduced charge of misdemeanor assault against his wife and sentenced to 30 days behind bars.

The deal would have seen Sheen leave jail by day to coach actors at a local Aspen theater and would have allowed him to fulfill his sentence in time to start filming the new season of Two and a Half Men in early August, The Wrap notes.

But, the chief prosecutor told the judge on Monday that the two sides had been unable to reach an agreement, says TW.

TMZ reports that sources say a woman who works in the Pitkin County Jail derailed the deal because she refused to honor the agreement even though her own boss signed off on it.

TMZ says it has been told the Pitkin County Sheriff signed off on the deal, as did the undersheriff, the lead prosecutor and Pitkin County District Attorney Marty Beeson. But the woman who supervises the work release program at the jail said she wasn't going to honor the deal because she had problems with the way it was structured.

Although Sheen's legal troubles have had little effect on "Two and a Half Men," continued rescheduling of the court date could impact the show's shooting schedule, opines The Hollywood Reporter.
