Mel Gibson

Charged with Crime

3/11/2011 4:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County District Attorney has just filed a single misdemeanor battery charge against Mel Gibson.

Mel Gibson Charged
The misdemeanor specifically targets someone who either cohabits or has a child with the alleged victim.

TMZ broke the story, Mel will plead no contest today to the charge and will not receive jail time ... but will undergo continued counseling.

The no contest plea is not an admission of guilt.

Mel must appear in court today for the arraignment and the plea, which will take place at 1:30 PM PT ... which TMZ will broadcast live.

"Mel Charged with Crime"

TMZ has the most stupid headlines ever. What crime?

And for retarded haters - get a grip. Okskanka is 14 years Mel's junior, which is not such a huge age gap, especially since she is over 40 and no spring chicken. How could she be young enough to be his daughter? Your math sucks.

Interesting how low key the DA is over this. He did some serious injury to that woman and they are making it seem like it wasn't a big deal at all with "simple battary". I was once charged with this offense and I didn't touch anyone, some mentally ill black woman's statement held a whole lot of weight against me.

This is politics, he's guilty as hell and they release this news story on a huge news day to distract from the gravity of this man's crime.

I'm waiting to see if she works out a deal with Mel for a Confidentiality agreement, large enough to cover her legal fees.

I'm sure Mel's guys would make it Iron Clad, so she could't talk about the Mel or the case anymore.

Yea, that will never happen. Especially since the big money is in Civil Court, just like David has been bragging about for a year.

Of course there's always the risk they could assign her a female judge, Gasp!

Charged for stopping a woman from shaking a baby??? Really sick in my opinion.

Mel and Oksana were together at an appt. for their child. Days later he is copping a plea. She is charged with nothing. What I am trying to get at, Mel and Oksana are together again. It is made to look as if they aren't, but they probably are. After a year of her dragging him through the mud with vile accusations, he tires and starts to think of his family. Bull! Mel copped to this plea so that he and Oksana can get together again, if they aren't already. This way if they do get back together it wouldn't look so bad. His wife is finished with him and seeing someone else. She spoke up for him but doesn't want him back into her life. He took the fall for them both by copping this plea. What's wrong with this case is exactly this. You can see she is not being charged. Mel is getting older. Through his rants it shows a man who was in love, hence his rage to find out she was playing him. I can only be happy for him if this is what he wants to do and if this is the person he wants in his life. This is his new family!

All you Oxie haters need to remember the following:

1). Mel picker her as partner.
2). Mel professed his love for her -- repeatedly.
3). Mel impregnated her, cared and provided for her and the baby.
4). Mel just admitted he was guilty of battery. He hit a defenseless woman.

All this is on Melvin, and all of this is his fault!

The little Jew-hating fidget is finally getting some small measure of justice, although to be candid, counseling is worthless, especially with a lying sociopath like Mel.

And congrats to TMZ for being his counsel's puppet and trying to make the victim the guilty party.

Mel hit a woman holding his own child. Psycho!

Losing!

Duh!

Ox is a low life extortioner. Selling those doctored recordings to ROL was deplorable. I wonder what Lucia will think of it when she grows up.

Harvey, you ****tard. I checked in here to see if you actually might drop the Gibson/Sheen/Lohan crap for a day given how many people have like, you know, died and stuff. Perhaps a running story stuck to the top or something...

Not you eh, Harv?

She could write a book on how to sleep your way to victory.

Except, there would be far too many famous names [and powerful legal minds] involved, so that probably can't happen.

I guess she'll just have to keep her regular day job, recruiting future ex-boyfriends with big wallets and foolish intentions. How do you say "I'm pregnant again" in Russian?
