Would you stay with your husband if he allegedly held a knife to your throat?
Apparently Brooke Mueller will. High-profile lawyer, Yale Galanter, appeared on Larry King Live last night, Dec. 30, and insisted that the incident that occurred on Dec. 25th between the pair, was just a “bad marital moment.”
Despite the fact that Charlie was charged with 2nd degree assault, menacing, and criminal mischief, Galanter, who repped OJ Simpson in his Las Vegas memorabilia-heist case, insists, “They want to reconcile. They want to work on their marriage. They have two beautiful babies that they are trying to raise.”
This is also despite the fact that Brooke admitted to the police in her affadavit that this kind of incident had happened before. Allegedly Charlie had pushed Brooke down to the floor where she hit her head a few months ago, during another raging argument, according to RadarOnline.
In the Dec. 25 incident, she alleged to police that Charlie choked her and held a knife to her throat.
Brooke’s lawyer told Larry King that he has gone to court with Charlie’s lawyers to have the domestic violence restraining order modified — so the two can have contact again. The two are now prohibited from talking, texting and emailing, as well as seeing each other in person.
“We are very hopeful that there is a non-litigation resolution to this. We’re hopeful for an amicable settlement.”
“In the case of domestic violence, we do want the victim to have a safety plan in place.”
The DA said he is particularly opposed to lifting the portions of the order that forbid Charlie from possessing a firearm (or any other weapon), consuming alcohol or using drugs.
He emphasized that “domestic violence is a serious crime.”
Sorry Brooke and Charlie. Despite your lawyer’s attempts to minimize what happened, Colorado legal authorities are seeking this for what it really is — a very serious and potentially dangerous situation.
Good for them! — Bonnie Fuller
