Oscar Pistorius Found Guilty Of Manslaughter


I definitely knew he will be charged guilty of manslaughter!....Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of manslaughter over the Valentine's Day shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. He was also found guilty of second degree fire arm. He could be jailed for up to 15 years or escape jail with a community service order. The convicted paralympian will be sentenced on Monday, October 13 and was released on bail until that date.
Yesterday the judge cleared Oscar Pistorius of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Oscar was accused of shooting the 30-year-old model during a furious row at his Pretoria home on Valentine's Day last year. But he maintained during the trail that he shot his girlfriend in self-defence after mistaking her for an intruder.


 Judge Thokozile Masipa said there was not enough evidence to support prosecution claims that Pistorius intended to kill the law graduate-turned-model.
The athlete, dubbed Blade Runner due to his prosthetic limbs, has always admitted he shot Miss Steenkamp, though he told police he simply mistook his girlfriend for an intruder.
