Mel Gibson

Battery Conviction To Be EXPUNGED

Mel Gibson
will have his battery conviction ERASED from his record ... as if the Oksana Grigorieva mouth-punching incident NEVER happened ... TMZ has learned.

Mel's lawyer filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- asking the judge to expunge his no contest plea from his record.

Gibson was charged with battery for hitting Grigorieva in the mouth, knocking out several veneers.  He actually confessed to striking her in a sworn declaration in his custody case, admitting, "I slapped Oksana one time with an open hand in an attempt to bring her back to reality."

According to docs Mel has completed ALL of the requirements the judge laid down after he copped a plea in March, 2011.  Those requirements included 16 hours of community service and 52 weeks of counseling.  He was also required to maintain "peaceful contact" with Grigorieva.

Gibson was placed on 3 years probation, which ended in March.

The hearing is set for later this month.  The judge will allow Mel to withdraw his plea, the case will be dismissed and his criminal record will be expunged.

That's excellent, now nobody but Mel and his mail order bride will ever know it happened. It can be their little secret.

Counseling must have helped. We never see anything about him on TMZ anymore besides this story. Hopefully he stopped drinking.

Great news!! Now if Mel could just expunge OG out of his life forever. Have her stay in Santa Monica, or wherever the hell she's hiding out and let her walk into the ocean and drown in debt. Then he could get full custody of Lucia and his life would be complete. Keep up the good work Mel... Time is on your side. Why Harvey can not block these stupid ads off of these threads is beyond me...Does anyone ever read them?

How is this fair??? The justice system is working for those with rich lawyers as usual!
There are people who have been arrested for ONE non-violent crime and it affects their record (the one they often have to present after a job interview etc) for the rest of their lives. But Mel Gibson battered someone and has a history and he can just have it all forgotten?!!
