The court ruled that Pistorius is VINEN. Atlet goes to jail for 6 years

The athlete with an athlete, Oscar Pistorius, has been sentenced to six years in Pretoria for the murder of girlfriend Reeve Steenkamp. Judge Thokozile Masipa did not comply with the lawsuit that required a minimum of fifteen-year sentence.

It is therefore possible that the public prosecutor will ask for an appeal. The judge said that he would hear his possible arguments today. The defender of the South African paralympic champion, who has both legs under his knees, has announced he will not appeal. Although he originally applied for a public service jail, he would not risk torture.

Relatives are punished for reconciliation. “The family accepts the sentence,” Pistorius spokeswoman Anneliese Burgess said.The verdict was not criticized by the parents of the shot dead. “The family has already said that she wants to give her the right to go, and that’s what happened, and they will not comment on it,” Steenkamp’s De Bruyn’s representative said. “Judge Masipa, in reading the judgment, said she had found Significant and convincing attenuating circumstances that allowed her to go below the minimum age of fifteen for murder. In determining the amount of the penalty, it has taken into account the seriousness of the offense, the interests of society and the impact on the victim’s family. While Pistorius has an explosive nature, it is not aggressive and can be fully incorporated into society once it is punished.”Public opinion can be loud and persevering, but it can not play any role in the decision-making process,” Masipa said, referring to the public’s call for a minimum of fifteen-year murder rates. “I am of the opinion that a long prison would not serve justice in this case,” she added.

Pistorius was taken to a detention cell in a courthouse after the verdict was handed over to prison. According to BBC experts, he will have to serve at least half of the six-year sentence for grids before he can apply for conditional release. The time you have already served in jail after the first sentence will not be counted in the new sentence.According to other sources, he may ask for release after serving a third sentence, that is, after two years.

Pistorius on Valentine’s Day in 2013 shot Steenkamp through several wounds through the toilet door. In his defense, he defended himself by claiming he was a thief and shot himself in self-defense. He was originally recognized as guilty of negligent killing, and in October 2014 he was sentenced to five years in prison. After a year he was released into a home jail and lived in his uncle’s home in Pretoria. Last December, however, the Appeals Court reclassified his murder charge.
