charlie sheen abuseDuring Charlie Sheen's CNN interview Monday night, he dismissed charges of having abused women in his past.

"No, women are not to be hit. They're to be hugged and caressed, you know?" Sheen told Piers Morgan after denying he had ever hit a woman. "I'm sorry, there was an incident years ago, and everybody thought I hit her. I was trying to contain her. I had her arms, and we both went to the ground ... her initials are B.A."

Now celebrity attorney Gloria Allred tells RadarOnline.com that Sheen's comments are "revolting and despicable."

In a statement to Radar, Allred says: "[Sheen] failed to state that he was charged with one count of battery with serious injury of my client, Brittany Ashland, Penal Code Section 243(d). He entered a plea of no contest to that charge. No contest has the same effect as a guilty plea for his crime."
