Oscar Pistorius Sentenced To Five Years In Prison For Killing His Girlfriend
South African Olympian Oscar Pistorious was sentenced to five years in prison after shooting his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year. Pistorious claims that he shot Steenkamp by accident after mistaking her for an intruder in his Pretoria home. Earlier this year, Judge Thokozile Masipa found Pistorious guilty of culpable homicide and one firearm-related charge, of reckless endangerment related to discharging a firearm in a restaurant.
Pistorious is expected to serve 10 months behind bars with the rest of his sentence under house arrest. He was also sentenced to a three-year suspended sentence for a firearms charge.
