Mel Gibson Sentence -- The Chris Brown Factor

3/11/2011 8:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Although Chris Brown's name was never mentioned in Mel Gibson's hearing today -- Brown's sentence may have been a factor in determining Mel's fate.

0311_oksana_rihanna_TMZ_WM

One of the reasons Mel didn’t get jail time is because the L.A. County District Attorney has to show  some kind of consistency in their plea bargains.  Chris Brown's case is notable because he pled guilty to felony assault -- for beating the crap out of Rihanna -- and was sentenced to 5 years probation ... no time behind bars.

Even if Mel did knock Oksana's veneers out -- something he has not admitted -- it would be impossible to justify sending Mel to jail and Chris to community service.

Do you agree?

Gibson slapped Ox he didn't beat the crap out of her like she wanteds everyone to believe.

Im a little tired of females being able to hit males and when the males hit back they scream domestic violence. The guys get arrested and or go to jail. And it's the poor female. That's not always the case at all.

You are comparing apples and oranges. Rhianna is a violent person - she engaged in a physical fight with her partner.

Oksana - she is an annoying, vile, liar who has an agenda to enrich herself with Mel's money.

A physical interaction with Oskana is Domestic Violence - You cannot physically engage someone b/c you dislike their conduct. Sure she is an evil woman, the worst of the worst - but beating her? No, you can't do it.

In no way an I saying Mel actually beat her. This woman, in her picture, looks like she was having an ordinary dental exam and her veneer, which is common to fall out, showed a picture that intended to mislead a person. The truth? That picture just shows this vile woman's veneer fell - no damage whatsoever. If Mel punched her, bruising would be more apparent.

Rhiana - she is just a violent person. She got into a physical fight with her boyfriend. She got her butt handed to her from that fight - She should NOT be treated like a woman. She initiated the physical contact by throwing blows with her boyfriend. She lost.

We all know that woman is nothing more than a talentless abusive woman who likes to brawl.

MEL'S TACTIC TODAY DOES NOT STOP OKSANA AT ALL FROM USING ALL EVIDENCE IN CIVIL CASE!

FROM TMZGossip's post:

nothing from today stops Oxy from filing a civil suit.

the only thing she can't do is claim that he "admitted" to the battery by pleading no contest.

any collected depositions and legal do***entation can be used.
witnesses can be called

the 2 biggest differences are

1. that Gibson can't refuse to testify in a civil trial (and you might want to look at what happens if he tries to avail himself of the '5th amendment) -- and

2. she is only required to tip the scales to 51%

Although, I'm team Mel, I think he foolishly got himself into this mess. I don't feel sorry for all the money he will lose. He entered into this relationship for her looks...she was a pretty looking person but in reality, and as demonstrated by this picture, she is actually a retarded ugly looking female who had one thing in mind - money.

Mel is a smart cat. He knew what he was getting into. You snooze you lose.

Only fools and trolls see this outcome as fair. Mel doesn't even wear a tie to court just to show his further contempt for the LA DA's office.

If you want to get away with murder -- literally and figuratively -- be a celebrity and do the crime in LA.

Hooray for our two-tiered legal system.

Duh!

TMZ likens Mel's DV case to Chris's DV case and then wants to know if Mel's judgment was fair? Hell NO! Neither Chris's judgment nor Mel's was fair! Both should have been booked and served at least 10 days in the general population of the LACJ. I think they both got of lite and easy, especially Mel. Mel's plea bargain just makes me sick in that he chose his own community service at he and his wife's charity. Disgusting.
