Oscar Pistorius sentenced today

OSCAR Pistorius will find out his fate today, when his sentence is handed down for shooting girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The South African Paralympian was convicted of culpable homicide and may face jail time over the February shooting.

It is understood that gang leaders have threatened Pistorius should he receive any special treatment while locked up.


Pistorius’ legal team have called for the ex-athlete to be spared jail and placed under house arrest over fears for his safety.

Reeva Steenkamp was shot on Valentines Day by Pistorius, who claims he thought she was a home invader.
