On Friday afternoon, Mel Gibson was in the courtroom and plead ‘no contest’ to a misdemeanor charge of spousal battery stemming from his domestic abuse charge from last year with Oksana Grigorieva.

While he received no jail time, he was placed on 36 months probation and must undergo 52 weeks of counseling, plus 16 hours of community service at Mending Kids International.

Mel Gibson got one heck of a deal from his charges of spousal abuse against his ex Grigorieva in 2010. He avoided jail time, but must complete counseling and probation as part of his plea deal, plus pay about $500 in fines.
