Oscar Pistorius gets 6 years Jail term for killing girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp

South African Paralympian, Oscar Pistorius has been given a six-year jail term for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp - but could be out in 2019 after a judge outlined his 'special circumstances'.


Judge Thokozile Masipa said the athlete would receive less than the mandatory 15-year minimum jail term for a murder conviction. She said had already spent 12 months in jail, was a first time offender and that he was 'not likely to re-offend'. It means the 29-year-old could serve just three more years in jail.
