OSCAR PISTORIUS SLAPPED 5 YEARS

Date:

The South African athlete, Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to five years imprisonment for a capable homicide of his girl friend Reeva steenkamp.

He was also sentenced to three years, suspended for five years, for firing a pistol under a table at Tasha’s restaurant in Johannesburg in January 2013.

The sentences would run concurrently.

Masipa said that Oscar Pistorius’s defence team’s suggestion that he should serve three years community service for killing Steenkamp “would not be appropriate”.

Delivering her verdict, Masipa said the suggestion by defence witnesses would not be in the interest of justice.
