Sheriff's Dept. Interviews Oksana's Mediation Lawyer

10/6/2010 8:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... L.A. County Sheriff's investigators have just interviewed the lawyer who mediated Oksana Grigorieva's case with Mel Gibson, in connection with the extortion investigation.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... two investigators went to the law offices of Eric George, a well-known L.A. attorney.  As TMZ has reported, the Sheriff's investigators are looking into whether Oksana tried to extort $15 million from Mel Gibson, in return for the infamous audio tapes.  TMZ has already posted the signed agreement that Oksana later disavowed.

Our law enforcement sources say ... among the topics investigators covered:

-- How involved Oksana was in the mediation
-- How involved she was in the money discussions
-- Why she ultimately rejected the agreement she signed

In addition to meeting with George, investigators met with his law partner, Sonia Lee, who was also involved in the mediation.

Our law enforcement sources say the extortion file should go to the L.A. County District Attorney shortly.  The D.A. will make simultaneous decisions on whether to prosecute Mel for domestic violence and Oksana for extortion.

i hope they lock this broad up so she can go away. i smelled a rat when all the audio was being released. not only that they were released but how they were released. to maximize the damage to mel. not to say that hes an angel, but come on. shes a common gold digger & not at all innocent in the matter. in my eyes shes just as bad as mel, if not worse. why doesn't this woman get a damn job instead of living off of these gossip magazines? what a nightmare.

I suspect, given how long this drama has been going on, my definition of "shortly" and yours are very different in reference to the case being turned over. If they interviewed today, I want it sent tomorrow!! Let's get the extortionist locked up and make the streets safer with one less criminal walking free.

I hope to see JUSTICE soon! Mel cleared, and Oksana charged and spending well deserved time in JAIL for all the grief she has caused.
Words can't describe the revulsion I feel for her.

Have no doubts, Oksana understands the in and out of the legal system better than some Lawyers. Wonder what her phone shows she contacted during that two day period

I don’t know about the law, but morally (IMO) abuse and bigotry is worse than gold digging and lying.

I was right, Eric George and Sonia Lee will be involved again, because of Oksana's interview with People Magazine.
Like she tried to exonerates herself from any wrong doing.

It will be fun if her previous lawyer sues her for defamation of their characters.
