Oscar Pistorius Given Six Years

OSCAR PISTORIUS: AT THE BEGINING OF HIS MURDER SENTENCE HEARING

South African Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to six years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

The verdict comes after his initial five-year conviction for manslaughter was changed to murder last December on appeal.


Pistorius, 29, shot Reeva Steenkamp four times through a locked toilet door in February 2013.

He admitted shooting her, but said he mistook Ms Steenkamp for an intruder and acted out of fear.

It is thought that Oscar will most likely be out in 3 years rather than staying for the full 6.
