Oscar Pistorius sentenced to 6 years in prison

Oscar Pistorius has just been sentenced to 6 years in prison for the
murder of Reeva Steenkamp. He faced up to 15 years in prison but the
judge said there were “substantial and compelling reasons” to deviate
the 15-year minimum sentence, citing as one factor, the
continuing misperception that Pistorius had intended to kill his
girlfriend. She said a a long-term imprisonment will not serve justice
as Oscar is already a broken man…a fallen hero.

The Steenkamp family looked stunned that Oscar only received 6 years but
said nothing. And Oscar can be paroled for good behaviour after serving
a 3rd of hissentence, which is just 2 years.
