Washington: Charlie Sheen’s rehab sentence, which was ordered after he was found guilty of assaulting wife Brooke Mueller, will last only seconds, it has emerged.

Under the plea deal approved by the court, Sheen will get a 30-day sentence which will be "administered and executed" at Promises rehab facility in Malibu - where Charlie stayed either full or part-time for more than a month earlier this year.

But sources connected with the case tell that the actor will receive credit for "time served".

According to TMZ, Charlie will check into Promises on August 23 and will leave immediately.

And it gets even better for Sheen - he`s already completed his 36 hours of anger management, another element of the plea deal.

The plea bargain is a victory for Yale Galanter, who shockingly represents the alleged victim in the case - Brooke Mueller. Galanter ended up negotiating the plea with the Pitkin County DA.
