Extortion Probe Could Derail Case Against Mel

9/23/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva could be checkmated into silence ... silence that could make it impossible to prosecute Mel Gibson for domestic violence -- sources tell TMZ.

Mel Gibson extortion case.

As we first reported ... the L.A. County Sheriff's Department is conducting what we're told is a "serious" extortion investigation.  Our law enforcement sources tell us investigators have "numerous" emails, texts, documents and witness statements that could lead to criminal charges.

If the D.A. files extortion charges against Oksana ... sources familiar with the case tell us it virtually forces her to take the Fifth -- in other words, she'd refuse to testify against Mel Gibson because what she says could incriminate her.

Although the D.A. often prosecutes domestic violence cases with uncooperative alleged victims ... sources involved in this investigation tell us Oksana's testimony is critical, particularly because the physical evidence is shaky.  For starters, we've already told you about her dentist changing his story, not reporting the alleged violence to authorities and failing to get pictures that show injury.

We're told the D.A. considers the two investigations "connected."  If the D.A. files extortion charges, our sources say there's a good chance it could flat-out torpedo a domestic violence prosecution.

And ... if the D.A. decided not to file an extortion case against Oksana to preserve a domestic violence case against Mel, his lawyers would have a field day in court.

The plot thickens.

I hope they file the extortion charges against the gold-digger and give Mel back his life.

As Mel had excused his meltdown rants in January & February, Oksana negotiated with him on rather comfortable terms in early spring. It is evident from the recently leaked e-mails, that Oksana worried about the illegitime status of Lucia. She felt that Mel & his relatives would eventually try to put her down or even fabricate stories about her lack of ability to take care of the child. Therefore her evidence of Mel’s abusive behaviour was still very important. Even tough there was no longer an immediate threat against her, something might eventually happen, that could actualize her evidence again, as clearly stated by Horowitz.

Considering Oksana’s worries about Lucia’s status, the sudden appearance of Violet Kowal & her public testamony of all details about her relationship with Mr. Gibson during Oksana’s pregnancy, made it uncomfortably clear how little he had ever cared about her. It was a shocking revelation & all her worries about the unreliability of Mel suddenly came alive again. No wonder that she stepped back from the agreement, that would not allow her to ever reveal anything abort his behaviour in the future.

If Violet Kowal’s testamony is true, it adds volumes to the evidence concerning the dishonesty of Mel. The spokesmen of camp Mel immediately denied the story, but it dosen’t seem to have vansished yet. Alternatively, as Sweethearts theories are going, Violet Kowal could have been planted by Oksana intending to damage the reputation of Mel. If so, it would strongly support Mel’s allegations of extortion.

Anyway, the truth about the Violet Kowal affair seems to be a central point in this case & more is hopefully to be revealed during the process in court, or eventually by further confessions in public.

Yes it proves he was not serious with Konsie. So she got pregnant to trap him. That is what it is in a nutshell. He did not love her. He might of cared for her but I feel she is not the type girl you bring home to mom.

Sorntolc Violet or no Violet Oksana had played all her aces by flapping her mouth and tells all.
All her evidence from the beginning are flimsy, not enough to convice a 10 years old.

We Mel supporter knew that without being told by the DA.

It all about money "nothing for me" by Oksana.
She fabricated so much lie so Mel will pay up big. Due to her greediness and kept releasing private information after another to completely humiliated and destroy Mel was her downfall.
