Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to 5 years in Prison
Oscar Pistorius has been jailed for 5 years in prison, after being charged with manslaughter for the February 14th killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. The defense asked for a house arrest while the prosecution asked for 10-5 years in imprisonment.
According to legal experts, he may not spend all 5 years in prison as the commissioner of correctional services could convert the sentencing to community service at anytime they deem fit. He was calm through and after the sentencing and it’s unsure if he would appeal. All the drama expected was absent. No words, no reactions as the judge handed the sentence.
