Mel Gibson has had more than a year to wait to find out what was going to happen in his battery case with Oksana Grigorieva, and now it seems the wait is over. Â Prosecutors have offered a plea deal with a reduced charge (battery rather than corporal injury), and mandatory counseling without any jail time. Â In other words, he’s basically getting no punishment at all.
Mel is reportedly glad about the plea deal, as he claimed he was worried about the effects a lengthy trial might have on his children. Â I can’t imagine the effects of a trial would be any worse than the effects of having an abusive rageaholic bigot for a father, but hey.
