D-day has finally come for Oscar Pistorius as he is sentenced to six years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
After a dramatic three-year court case, Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to six years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. While his imprisonment does not come as a shock, the length of the sentence does. Judge Thokozile Masipa ruled that there were, "compelling circumstances" which merited a deviation from the minimum 15-year sentence for Pistorius. Paul Hoffman from The Institute for Accountability in Southern Africa (IFAISA) said it was clear Judge Masipa has had sympathy towards Oscar. "The fact that she had her culpable homicide conviction overturned and substituted with a murder conviction seems to have made very little impression on her approach to sentencing." Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius will serve his time at Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre in Pretoria. He spent his first night in the correctional facility last night.

Andrew Fawcett, director of Ramsay Webber and a part of Pistorius' legal team said they would not appeal the sentence, "We respect the decision of Judge Masipa and are not lodging an application for leave to appeal. Oscar will serve his sentence as handed down." The Steenkamp camp also spoke to reporters following the sentencing in Pretoria and said they would not appeal the ruling.
