Mel Gibson, Oksana Grigorieva -- Package Deal

8/18/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the L.A. County District Attorney will treat the Mel Gibson domestic violence investigation and the Oksana Grigorieva extortion probe as a "package deal."

Our sources say the D.A. will make filing decisions on both investigations at the same time.  And, we've learned the L.A. County Sheriff's Department is still a ways away from sending the extortion case over to the D.A.

Bottom line -- don't expect to know whether Mel and Oksana will be prosecuted for a while.

Genna...thank you for sharing what your cousin did with you. It sounds like what she stated in capacity as a professional, lends credibility to what most all of us have stated at one time or another on these posts.

Well, given they are still married, she can't testify or be diposed if I am not mistaken...so if that is true, Oks(anon)a's camp is duing this to piss them off(mel's camp) or again to show they are doing their job and earning their money.

Which of course looks like they are stretching to find some reason to be paid.

It's pretty silly.

Robyn provided the affidavit, so opposing council has the right to cross-examine the witness. Robyn is not testifying AGAINST Mel in crimminal court, this is a civil court matter before the family court and that's different.

Something jumped out at me when I read this. In my state, if there is 50/50 joint custody, nobody gets child support. Don't know the laws of California, but it would be a hoot if Mel didn't even have to pay child support.

Let me clarify this. If there is 50/50 joint PHYSICAL custody...where the child spends half the time at each parents' house....no child support is awarded.

Thanks Who, and Truth…

She has a lot more experience in these matters. It was a fascinating discussion. I learned a lot...especially about the incidents surrounding the reporting of DV, and the cir***stances. I wasn't aware of the number of false DV accusations, either.

Who's going to make the agreement? If there is credible evidence of a crime and the DA's office feels they can prove it, it'll move forward. I can see civil cases ending with an agreement and life moving on, but criminal cases are a whole different ball game.

What agreement are you talking about?

I don't think Mel will settle for any agreement with OG after what she has done. What about Mel suing OG in civil court for damages in leaking the tapes?

Oxa lived with Tim Dalton for a decade, most of her adult life hitherto. She is not just a hooker.

Dalton wanted to marry her. She was sooo in love with him that she turned him down when he had a prenup drawn up. Hmmm... yup, not just a hooker, but a heartless gold digger as well.

So does that mean that the cases will be determined on the lack of merits or on the merits? And why will they be determined simultaneously where alleged crimes may or may not have taken place?

Huh? Lack of merits? What in the world are you talking about?

Investigators in the LA Sheriff's Department are going to pass along the file (evidence and all) to the PA. The PA will need time to review and talk with witnesses. The PA will determine if the evidence is there and strong enough to prosecute. If the evidence is weak or not there, the PA will drop.

The domestic violence and extortion go hand in hand. She claims domestic violence in order to extort from Mel.

I don't like to see an innocent man thrashed in the media and depicted as guilty based on a proven tampered tapes that his EX GIRLFRIEND leaked because the media is clearly biased against him ...

Posted at 5:49 AM on Aug 18, 2010 by Hahaha

That is fair enough, but I don't believe Mel is quit innocent in his relation to Oxy. I didn't say she is a hooker, that's twisted out of the original context:

"Oxa lived with Tim Dalton for a decade, most of her adult life hitherto. She is not just a hooker. Only going for the best, it must have been sad to realize the hidden Mel. Wonder how he will explain himself in court."

I will not bother to judge her deeper motives in choice of men, but you willingly see what you want to see: A hooker. Must have been hard for Dalton ten years!

Lucky enough Mel found out after only a year or two.

No backing out of the criminal case. Full steam ahead! lol

I don't think Mel would back out of any potential litigation now. And there won't be a settlement of any kind for that money hungry whore. Wants to strip Mel of all his custody rights to Lucia, but she damn sure wants his money. He is good enough for that, isn't he.

Posted at 6:20 AM on Aug 18, 2010 by fuddyduddy
===============================================

No, I don't think anyone will back out now. That was a thought I had in response to one of sorntolcs posts. Sorry. I need to be more clear in my postings. lol

During the time she was living with Dalton she was banging a rich guy on the side and he was buying her expensive gifts. She broke up his marriage. Then she refused to marry Dalton without a prenup. How does one describe a person like that? High moral fiber, paragon of virtue....more like dam.n expensive hooker.
