D.A. in Mel Gibson Case -- No Decision Yet

1/19/2011 3:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County District Attorney says he still hasn't decided whether to file domestic battery charges against Mel Gibson.

Mel Gibson

D.A. Steve Cooley says the case is "actively under review."   Prosecutors met with Mel's lawyers -- Blair Berk and Jim Asperger --  yesterday.  Law enforcement sources tell us the meeting had been planned for weeks.

Well-placed sources in the case tell us ... the D.A. has not made any decision on whether to file charges, partly because Mel's case is directly tied to the extortion investigation of Oksana Grigorieva, and that case has not yet been presented to the D.A.

And law enforcement sources tell us ... if the D.A. files criminal charges against Oksana, it could so compromise her credibility that any case against Mel would be futile. 

Bottom line ... the D.A. can't make a filing decision until both cases are presented reviewed.

He is responsible for the well being of his child, she forced his intervention when she began to toss the child around like a bean bag. She should be locked up for using an infant as both a shield and a weapon.

Reminds me of an old saying of my Grandmother's, when we children hemmed and hawed around: "S**t, or get off the pot." It may take a somewhat more seasoned mind to understand the connection.

If slow and steady means Oksana will answer to charges, so be it.
Just try to make the correct decisions.

Hey buddy, she didn't HAVE to blow him up. That was entirely UP TO HER. All she needed to do was to pack up and LEAVE before she got pregnant and back to her thousands of dollars value job. How old is she? Or she was 39 at the time. Mature enough with an extensive prior abuse experience she KNEW better than a silly 18 y o, didn't she?

ha, I figured tmz was quiet until they found out what was really going on. They won't post a story until they know it is true or not.

Jaffe is still working with Ox I think and ROL is Jaffe.....therefore (finish the thought)
