Oscar Pistrious sentenced to 5 years in prison

For killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day in 2013, double-amputee athlete Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to 5 years in prison by Judge Thokozile Masipa.
The following was what she considered before imposing her sentence.
1. Culpable homicide - 5 years in prison
2. For the Tasha shooting which he was found guilty for - 3 years in prison, wholly suspended for 5 years with conditions. The two sentences will run concurrently. His family is not planning to appeal.
He will serve a minimum of 8 months, after that, he'll probably be sent home to serve the remainder of his sentence under strict supervision controls. This will be up to SA Correction Services.
