Oscar Pistorius Gets 6 Years In Prison For Girlfriend’s Murder


I’m speechless … I remember his amazingly brilliant future. Only 6 years?

End Stand Your Ground

Even though he faced a minimum of 15 years in prison, Paralympic gold medallist sprinter Oscar Pistorius was sentenced today (July 6) by a South African judge to six years in prison for the 2013 Valentine’s Day murder of his girlfriend, 29-year-old model Reeva Steenkamp. It is the latest ruling in a drawn-out case that transfixed the nation.

Pistorius, now 29-years-old – who claimed he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he fired a gun four times through a bathroom door – had been originally convicted of manslaughter in 2014. Pistorius served 12 months of that sentence, but a higher court reversed the charge to murder in 2015.  He had been on house arrest since then.  See the full story on CNN.com
