It’s 6 Years Jail Term For Oscar Pistorius Killing His Girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp

South African Sprint Runner, Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius OIB has been sentenced to six years’ imprisonment for the 2013 murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

  • Judge Thokozile Masipa said there were “substantial and compelling circumstances” that meant he should not serve the 15-year minimum sentence for murder. The Judge also made it clear that “the continuing misperception that Pistorius had intentionally killed Steenkamp was something the court had a duty to correct “to prevent unjustified outrage from the public” – The Guardian
  • A statement on the Blade Runner’s official website, posted on Feb 14, 2014 reads the following:

No words can adequately capture my feelings about the devastating accident that has caused such heartache for everyone who truly loved – and continues to love Reeva.

The pain and sadness – especially for Reeva’s parents, family and friends consumes me with sorrow.

The loss of Reeva and the complete trauma of that day, I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

– Oscar
