Mel Gibson Case

8/9/2010 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the L.A. County Sheriff's Department will turn the Mel Gibson domestic violence case over to prosecutors in 2 weeks.

L.A. County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore tells TMZ investigators are "nearing the end of the investigation," adding, "The goal is turning the case over two weeks from today."

We're told all of the interviews -- including those of Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva -- have been completed and the Department is waiting to receive certain documentation.

Whitmore says the L.A. County District Attorney's Office has had "extensive involvement" during the investigation so the D.A. will not be in for any big surprises when the case is referred.

  Whitmore says his Department will not make any recommendations as to whether Gibson should be charged with any crime.  The investigation centers on three possible crimes -- domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon and child endangerment.

Is a about time, he should be penalized. There are two legal systems in this country, one for the rich and famous and another for the average and poor.

She was smart to tape him, otherwise no one in law enforcement or in any court would believe her.

Women should run away, from anyone that is violent with them or is emotionally abusive, because the most important thing is her life and her child.

Wow, the past few days worth of posters have been unkind. Thank goodness I live in the Midwest where police response is usually 1 min or less and nosy neighbors call police when someone is concerned for someone's health or safety. As always, I am totally astonished at some of the oddness coming from the west coast. Just call me wide-eyed and for TEAM TRUTH!

It is disgusting to me that with all of these allegations people are still supporting Mel. He clearly has a history of erratic behavior. This is exactly why women continue to allow themselves to be victims of domestic violence. Because we as a society doubt and blame them!! This is sick to me. Mel chose to have a child with this woman. The biggest victim of all is that poor child. We need to stop letting our children think that we are supporting this or that it is ok to hit women as long as you are a successful movie star; or whatever the excuse may be.

I am going to get crucified, but here goes: Mel did not CHOOSE to have a child with this woman. He was involved in getting her pregnant, but once a woman conceives a man has NO RIGHTS. If he wants an abortion, but she want to have the child. She has the child. If he wants the child, but she wants an abortion, she has an abortion. I have male friends who were on both sides of the situation and what they wanted neither mattered or was considered.

Mel supported do not thinking hitting a woman is okay. We think he didn't hit her. The "You deserved it." was spliced into her recording herself saying that he hit her while holding the baby. We have no idea what he was saying "You deserevred it." about. Heck, he could he responding to a delivery person complaining about a bad tip. I also find it interesting that she's not being brought up on domestic vilolence charges because he said that she was hitting him on one of those tapes. Why isn't her domestic abuse against Mel being investigated? Whatever.

I don't get it - Chris Brown gets prosecuted to the fullest when he is barely out of diapers and these GROWN MEN, Mel and Charlie Sheen look like they are going to get a slap on the wrist. Should he be charged? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

I'd hate to see people convicted of hate crimes while in a drunken stupor. People drink, get drunk and say stuff.
His rants should be thrown out of the mix. And she should be
deported to Russia to take some more "classes".

Gayle -

It would have been a very smart move to tape him if she was in fear of her life.

But why were the recordings subsequently doctored? Pretty much makes them inadmissable as evidence now.

TEAM TRUTH!!!!

WOO HOO!!!!!

Oh, and for those of you who think it is all the guys fault, and that is why women who are truly abused won't go to the police, WRONG!!!

Look at Gloria Allred. She is the reason. Her and all the money grubbing lawyers who down-play this cr^p that happens and make deals and let people get away with stuff.

She PROMOTES this garbage. She has signed on as the lawyer to all the bottom feeders of the past 15 years!

How can you take women seriously when they do that? All that shows the world is you want attention and money.

Perfect example is that nasty Bombshell girl, U(gly)tel and the rest of the lot.

Again, i am not in defense of Mel, just THE TRUTH!!1

I do not believe in condemning people for what they say in a heated moment of anger or rage. I accept that all individuals have temporary moments of insanity where they say things that are cruel to one another...particularly when the break-up of a relationship is going on. Saying things and doing things are 2 different things. Whoopi said she has known Mel for years and knows for a fact he is not a racist. He chose a bad term for expressing his displeasure with Oksanas choice of clothing and her flaunting her body. However, he has a point. She is a 40 year old woman and some of the outfits are a little too revealing...in one you can see her underwear. Even if you have a beautiful body, modesty is a virtue when you have a young son and a new boyfriend and baby.

KM- I agree with you to an extent. But who cares what she did or didn't do. Why do people automatically believe the things being said about Oksana but not Mel? Many woman stay with their abusers long after they should. Still, she covered her ass. Doctors reports, e-mails to her attny, photos, texts from Mel, etc. This is alot more than most people do. Kudos to her for being proactive!

Paula- your an idiot. Why would you automatically believe the things being said about Oksana but not Mel? Educate yourself! The law is not black and white. Who cares if he didn't beat Robyn. Not relevant. Their divorce is not final yet, and there are apparently witnesses who claim they saw abuse in the relationship. Many women stay with an abuser long after they should. She took steps to cover her ass after the incident. Doctors, phone calls, photos and e-mails to attorneys. If was about money don't you think she would've used these things against him earlier? Kudos to her for being pro-active.
