Oscar Pistorius Returns To Court Today As Sentencing Starts

Oscar Pistorius was found GUILTY of culpable homicide over the shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, returns to court today for sentencing, which means he could face up to 15 years behind bars or judge Masipa could suspend the sentence and impose a fine.

She said that Oscar had acted “negligently” when he shot his girlfriend through a toilet door, but in the “belief that there was an intruder”.


Oscar was cleared of murder charges  and also acquitted of cleared of illegal ammunition possession.

However, this left Reeva’s family and friends majorly disappointed.

Judge Masipa last month, pushed the sentencing a few weeks ahead so she could review the case thoroughly and make her final decision.

There is no minimum sentence for culpable homicide and there is also still a possibility he could avoid jail time altogether. It is the judge’s decision to make.
