D.A. Ready To Charge Mel Gibson - But Not Oksana

| Filed under: Legal MattersMel Gibson

After months of litigation, sources are reporting that it is finally looking like Mel Gibson will be charged with domestic violence.

Though nothing is set in stone yet, insiders close to the case explain that the District Attorney feels there is plenty of evidence to bring up a formal charge against Mel, the least of which being the declaration Mel had his lawyers file in which he admits to slapping Oksana Grigorieva because she was shaking their baby Lucia "wildly."

However, the charge will most likely be filed as a misdemeanor, not a felony, which could result maximum penalty of six months in jail.

Furthermore, the same source reports that it DOESN'T look like Oksana will be charged with extortion. Though Sheriff's investigators believe there is sufficient evidence, the D.A. does not and doesn't seem interested in pursuing anything further in the case.

We're told the official decisions on both matter should be made in the coming weeks.

Neither one of them seems really innocent in this situation, but we're glad to hear Mel will face some kind of punishment for his violent actions, no matter how minimal it may seem. Violence is never the answer and unfortunately, some people have to learn that the hard way.

    I don't believe his violent actions were minimal.

    He's gonna get away with it, he's rich and famous and the priority nowadays is not to disturb the gays. Rapists and wife-beaters are low in the agenda chain.



  3. 3

    They should both be charged its disappionting to know that she would get away with it considering there are emails by her which suggest extortion.



  4. 4

    once again it seems a woman will get away with it . anyways mels should be charged with a felony .

    Here's another case of an entitled tantrum-throwing baby, who, just when you think he's hit rock-bottom, opens up a trap door and keeps falling. If it had been one of us 'commoners' who'd done this CRAP, we would've been in jail a lot sooner.

    It's about bloody time.. If he were anyone else he would have been charged long ago.. The case they thought they had against her has nothing today with
    the assault against her. Why they were connected is beyond me.
    Gibson has the sheriff in his back pocket, he got an officer to change his
    report about the anti jewish rant he made when stopped for drunk driving. That case is going to court.
    The sheriff will reduce anytime he gets and it won't amount to anymore than a slap on the wrist.

    Speaking of emails … There was one shown on another site to her lawyer that exonerated her of extortion.. She said she would walk away from everything and take her chances in court because of the terms he wanted regarding the child custody. This was the smoking gun that cleared her of any extortion attempt claims made by Gibson.

    I can't believe she's going to get away with this! It makes me sick how some women treat the system!

    I thought it was inevitable he'd get charged. But Charlie Sheen only got what? 45 days in the slammer? So I doubt the punishment will be severe. The case against her always seemed iffy. That case was tabloid invented and between all her depositions and all the waste of tax payers money if there was the teeniest case they would have found it. The greatest case against her is that she was with Gibson, something no mentally sound woman would do. The baby sure has complete messes for parents, that's the biggest crime.

    "Mel had his lawyers file in which he admits to slapping Oksana Grigorieva because she was shaking their baby Lucia "wildly."

    So if it is true, who protects the baby here? I think shaking a baby wildly is more violent than a slap. The DA needs to understand DV laws need to protect everyone. If true, I don't believe her violent actions were minimal.

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer

    If the report is accurate, I don't think defending a baby constitutes rape or wife-beating.



  12. 12

    they should charge her lying ass with something - like lying to the police?



  13. 13

    This woman's story changes so much and lawyers I wouldn't charge either one



  14. 14

    How does slapping a woman while holding a baby constitute trying to protect the baby ? She could have dropped the child just from a reflex reaction to a slap that was hard enough to break her veneers. That was just a bogus
    excuse to try to justify his brutality.



  15. 15

    both are effin freak$.



  16. 16

    I think they need to move on to bigger and more important things other then Mel Gibson's personal life!

    Sources aren't nearly as impressive as the real thing on the wire. I'll wait.

    It is sick and disgusting that such a misogynist man can commit a violent crime and that it took this long for charges to be considered. It is also sick the way that Mel tried to subvert the attention by insisting on the false extortion charges. This is typical misogynist behavior. They believe that everything is someone else's fault, not their own. Mel should be ashamed of himself for treating the mother of his child this way.

    The best punishment for these two would be to force them to stay together. I really don't care that he hit her. For gold diggers, I'll make an exception. Sorry Perez, sometimes violence IS the answer.

    i dont condone violence but if someone is shaking a baby they deserve to be punched and knocked the eff out .. NEVER SHAKE A BABY

    im still watching joaquim phoenix 'im still here' movie its not bad lolllll

    i like to see him just 'as himself' even if he does look unwashed FALLING off stage is hilarious hahahaha
    i do hope he ends up acting again he truelly is a beautiful person.

    Oksana committed several felonies:illegal recordings, extortion, conspiracy to extort, tampering with evidence, submitting fake evidence,… plus making people listen to her unbelievably terrible singing. If she gets away without being charged it will be because she has powerful criminals backing her !
    Mel shouldn't be charged since she was shaking his baby at the time and threatening to give the baby brain damage and he only slapped her to bring her back into reality.
