Oscar Pistorias has been cleared of murder......is he lucky or what?
sort by best latest
He still may very well be sentenced to time in prison for the crimes he has been convicted of. From my understanding he could serve 15 years.
15 years is the minimum sentence for murder. Culpable Homicide could be up to 15 years in prison, although there is no minimum sentence and previous cases have been punished with community service and fines. I don't think he will be jailed.
Really? What a travesty. This is South Africa's OJ Simpson. It seems to be the case one can get away with murder if they have enough money in the United States and now South Africa. A normal citizen would be serving life in prison for this crime.
Indeed, JThomp - Although OJ was more brutal, and his planning, too, exposed a criminal mind. Oscar doesn't have a criminal mind. He is simply... let me suffice it to say, too full of himself.
