Mel Gibson Extortion Investigation Headed to D.A.

2/4/2011 7:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Mel Gibson extortion case will go to the L.A. County District Attorney next week, and we're told the D.A. could decide days later whether to charge Mel with domestic violence and Oksana Grigorieva with extortion.

Mel Gibson Case

L.A. County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ the extortion case will be presented to the D.A. next week.

As TMZ first reported, the D.A. has been waiting for the file and wants to make a joint decision on both the domestic violence case and the extortion case.

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ ... the D.A. is expected to make a quick decision.  If the Sheriff presents the file early next week, Mel and Oksana could learn their fate by week's end.

Stay tuned ...

is it possible the authorities have enough on her that they no longer need Kris' deposition at least at this time? If charges come down the pike for extortion, they can take it any time prior to trial, right? If no charges for extortion come down, then there is no point in taking it anyway..

TEAM MEL ~ If Jodie Foster waits untill the DA drops the case against Mel and charges OXs, I bet the "Beaver" will be the number one movie opening weekend, and I can't wait 'till the XXX parody.

A deposition is different than a sworn statement. Depositions the lawyers on both sides can question the person offering their account.

YES!!! This is the first half of the Steve & Steve Show. Things will probably move quickly now.

Off subject - - KH and Dr. Davis - - Waaaaaayyyyy back when, a Richard Davis posted on TMZ, and I think he was a neighbor or across the street from the Bobstone house. Wonder if it's the same guy. Anyone have the exact Bobstone address handy? Thanks

realist: same Dr. '****' Davis, the source of the videos we all commented looked like they were taken by a neighbor.

I'd would really like to see Steve Whitmore write a book about his experiences as spokesperson! Great escape read, don't you think?
