Mel Gibson: Charges of Domestic Violence Imminent?

January 19, 2011

After all the craziness, it looks like Mel Gibson may actually be sentenced. Yesterday there was a meeting where domestic violence charges against the accused were discussed. Will he face felony or misdemeanor charges? For the full story, with more photos and videos, keep reading below.

The actor’s attorney Blair Burke had one last chance Tuesday afternoon to convince prosecutors not to accuse him. Before the meeting however, some officers said that it was “inevitable” that he would be charged.

Since the get together was so late in the afternoon, we still have not heard the outcome. Stay tuned though, as we will update you when we find out. This all stems back to the incident that left Oksana Grigorieva with some messed up teeth. With the audio recordings that followed I can see why officials think that it is an easy decision to accuse Mel Gibson of domestic violence.

If he is blamed of the charges, he could face some serious legal consequences. He is facing either a felony or misdemeanor offense. If he is convicted of the latter, her could be in jail for a year. However, if they find him guilty of a felony, it could be up to 4 years in prison.

Either way it seems that the end of the battle may be near. How many times in the last year have we heard news from these two about fights, custody battle and money issues? They are still battling over lawyer costs and who should pay them. The most recent was a $163,000 bill sent to the actor from his baby’s momma!

What do you think about all of this drama possibly coming to an end? Whether the charges are dropped or not, it seems like the battle should end soon. Do you think Mel Gibson should be accused of domestic violence? Check back soon to see the outcome of the meeting. Also, I want to hear all of your thoughts after you check out these pictures and a video of the actor’s newest movie.

    What the ….?

    It seems Oxy and her camp has paid off the DA!

    How else can the DA justify charging a man for ONE slap that happened over a YEAR ago?? (it is already proven that Oxy’s ‘evidence’ is false–that means mel’s story is likely true.)

    Is the DA nuts?? This will open the doors to many other frivolous claims of DV based on a slap that happened long ago!

    Is he NUTS? No. He’s obviously been paid off and that wasn’t Mel paying to get himself arrested. The DA cares NOT about the financial status of CA. This move alone could sink the whole state by making spending state dollars on every little case that comes along.

    It’s true that hopefully by the end of the month, the DA will decide whether to charge Mel Gibson with domestic violence for slapping Oksana when she was allegedly shaking a two month old. The DA might also decide that Mel Gibson was acting within the law in protecting his daughter from possible Shaken Baby Syndrome.

    At the same time, the DA will determine if Oksana Grigorieva will be charged with extortion, possible perjury as related to her depositions, possible falsification of evidence as related to the altered recordings and photos of Lucia’s chin. According to CA law code, extortion/bribery, perjury and falsifying evidence are felonies. As such, Oksana Grigorieva will face deportation.

    There are various speculations as to why Attorney Berk visited with the ADA. According to RadarOnLine, she was there to present evidence that Oksana Grigorieva may have attempted to bribe a potential witness; a denial of that by Oksana Grigorieva was published on ROL within an hour.

    The DV investigation of Mel Gibson was wrapped up by LAPD in six weeks over the summer; the DA is waiting for the Sheriff and FBI to conclude their investigation of Oksana Grigorieva before deciding what action to take on both cases. Meanwhile, DFCS has reported Mel Gibson to be a good father and the family court judge had no qualms in increasing his visitation with Lucia.

    This despite Oksana Grigorieva’s claim on Larry King Live that Mel Gibson was dangerous and that on the night of infamous phone calls, she truly felt in fear for her life. She was so afraid in fact, that she disabled her phones and went to bed.
