Source: Mel Gibson Likely Faces Domestic Violence Charge; Oksana Grigorieva Off the Hook

by at . Comments

Mel Gibson will likely face domestic violence charges stemming from an alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva, while she will not be charged with extortion.

That's according to a TMZ report that is careful to note that this decision has not officially been reached. However, it looks like the D.A. is leaning this way.

Officials feel there's enough evidence to prosecute the actor, but not to prove beyond a doubt that Oksana tried to extort him using the Mel Gibson tapes.

The turning point for the D.A., sources say, is that prior to being accused of violence, Mel admitted slapping Oksana in the couple's family law/custody case.

He says he did this without brute force, but to make her come to her senses, as she was shaking baby Lucia wildly and he feared Shaken Baby Syndrome.

The likely charge against Mel is misdemeanor domestic violence, not a felony. That carries a max of six months in jail which he almost surely wouldn't get.

The extortion investigation is less clear-cut. Sheriff's investigators believe there is evidence to prosecute Oksana Grigorieva, but the D.A. doesn't agree.

A decision is expected in the next two weeks, possibly this week.

Part of the sentence for DV is always 52+ weeks of group therapy counseling. My social worker friend does this counseling. He relayed that in our area (Los Angeles) there are just as many 'abusers' in his female sessions as in the male sessions. Most of the men are low income, but the women tend to be high income! These DV laws were designed to protect women, but it seems the women are breaking the own laws that were there to protect them in the first place! If police are called for a DV, one person of the couple IS going to be arrested & charged.

Domestic violence will never end as long as the whole truth about it is misrepresented to comply with feminist ideology. V.P. Biden recently called violence against women, "the very worst abuse." The very worst abuse is valuing one life less than another for having been born the wrong gender. Under domestic violence law, the wrong gender is men. Shelter and services are virtually non-existent for male victims of domestic violence. Options out of a bad relationship, that women have, are often not available to men. Men wind up gender profiled by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry, because of gender feminist ideology controlling the d.v. industry. Men are often battered by domestic violence, and then battered again by the taxpayer funded, domestic violence industry as shown in "Los Misandry" at Youtube.
