Mel Gibson Took a Plea Deal

Mel Gibson won’t receive jail time after striking a plea deal in his criminal case. Mel will appear in court Friday to plead no contest to simple battery in his case with Oksana Grigorieva.

Instead of jail time, he’ll have to go to counseling. Because that obviously works so well. Supposedly, Mel decided to plea because he didn’t want to put a strain on his family and children from the prolonged court case.

Blair Berk, released the following statement to TMZ: “I know from almost 20 years as a criminal defense lawyer that sometimes justice can come for a client at too high a personal price. That is particularly so for Mel, whose right to due process can only be exercised in this case with an enormous media circus attached.”

Berk goes on, “Mel’s priority throughout all of this has been that the best interests of his young daughter Lucia and the rest of his children be put first in any decisions made. It is with only that in mind that he asked me to approach the District Attorney with a proposal that would bring all of this to an immediate end.”

What they’re saying is you can threaten to bury your girlfriend in your rose garden if she doesn’t blow you first before going to the hot tub in hundreds of voicemails and all you have to do is go to counseling? Excuse me. I have to make a few calls. Yes, operator. Please connect me to my third grade teacher who gave me an F. I have a rose garden with her name on it.
