#Pistorius In summary: Defence wants OP to be placed under house arrest with no jail time. Prosecution wants a minimum of 15 years in jail

#Pistorius Nel going through Defence's heads of argument and picking holes in it - Roux will be given another opportunity to counteract Nel


Geoffrey York @geoffreyyork
While defence argues that Pistorius is in "constant pain" from killing Reeva, Nel notes that her father has such pain that he self-harms


Debora Patta @Debora_Patta
#Pistorius Nel explains Reeva's dad didn't say court must send OP away forever just that he should pay for his crime - that is not anger


Liezl Thom @liezlthom
#OscarPistorius GerrieNel Mr Steenkamp didn't display anger or hatred, just said leave it to the court


Debora Patta @Debora_Patta
#Pistorius Nel:  It's unclear how OP has punished himself but I know how Barry Steenkamp punishes himself - that is a broken man


Robyn Dixon @RobynDixon_LAT
#Pistorius' brother, Carl, expresses revulsion at idea photos could be released. Says it's distasteful.  https://twitter.com/carlpistorius/status/743068025985871872 …

#OscarPistorius Nel again stresses the court should hand down a 15 year sentence.

Michelle Craig @MichelleL_Craig
Nel: Reeva's family has seen the photographs and they want to pursue the lifting of the ban. They believe it is time #OscarPistorius.


Michelle Craig @MichelleL_Craig
Nel: we apply for the lifting of the order banning the publication of the crime scene photos and that of Reeva Steenkamp's body.


Karyn Maughan @karynmaughan
Nel: 15 years imprisonment should be imposed as a minimum. The life of Reeva Steenkamp wasn't a minimum. #OscarPistorius


Karyn Maughan @karynmaughan
Nel argues "it can't be mitigating factor" that #OscarPistorius thought he was shooting intruder"unless you're saying life of intruder less"


Karyn Maughan @karynmaughan
Nel: Reeva Steenkamp will never realise her dreams..she died a horrific death. She was standing facing the door when #OscarPistorius fired.


Debora Patta @Debora_Patta
#Pistorius Nel:  When the accused fired the shots Reeva was standing behind the door as bullets ripped through her body one by one


Karyn Maughan @karynmaughan
Nel: the fact that Reeva Steenkamp was killed in case of mistaken identity is irrelevant to #OscarPistorius guilt.


Karyn Maughan @karynmaughan
Court normally ends at 3pm. But Judge Masipa yesterday said court would run until #OscarPistorius sentencing argument complete.

Pistorius walks on stumps in court as seeks to avoid jail

PRETORIA  |  By TJ Strydom and Tanisha Heiberg


Oscar Pistorius shuffled through a Pretoria court without his prosthetic legs on Wednesday to show how vulnerable he is as the Paralympian seeks to avoid prison for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

The 29-year-old faces a minimum 15-year jail term for the Valentine's Day killing in 2013 in a case that has attracted worldwide interest and divided South Africa. He will be sentenced on July 6.

Pistorius has always said he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder when he fired four shots through a locked toilet door in his Pretoria home, killing her almost instantly.

During his closing arguments, defense lawyer Barry Roux asked the gold medalist, known as the "Blade Runner" for his carbon-fibre prosthetics, to walk on his stumps to show the difficulty he faced dealing with the threat of an intruder.

Nel did a masterful job reinforcing the SCA judgement which states that sentencing STARTS at 15 years minimum and then reduces IF, and ONLY IF, there are mitigating factors strong enough. He pointed out that you cannot be remorseful for something you haven't explained! Pointed out that OP did a iTV interview due to air June 24th, but opted not to speak to the court...Nel said that is an affront to the court, the victim and the victim's parents. He also got 5 of the crime scene photos released to the public (not sure when this will occur).

IMO, he was talking/listening to his cell phone seen clutched in his right hand.

Evening news showed OP hobbling with effort about the court on his stumps.
I recall how he could walk with ease .... and how he could play kickball !
I call BS and believe he tried to pull an OJ on this court.

M-Net to screen exclusive Oscar Pistorius interview

2016-06-19 22:27



Cape Town - M-Net and SuperSport have secured the rights to screen the much talked-about ITV documentary Oscar Pistorius: The Interview, featuring the former Paralympic athlete’s first television interview since the tragic events of Valentine’s Day in 2013.

M-Net viewers will be able to watch the interview as part of a Carte Blanche special minutes after its world-premiere on the UK television network on Friday, June 24.

The Carte Blanche special, which will include an in-depth panel discussion, will start at 22:55 on both M-Net and its sister channel M-Net City (channel 115), which is also on DStv Compact.

Soon thereafter (exact details to be confirmed) the documentary as well as the Carte Blanche special will become available on all the DStv Catch Up platforms, while SuperSport will broadcast further screenings for those who didn’t stay up late for the express delivery to M-Net on Friday night.

“We will have the Oscar Pistorius interview on our screens literally as the end credits are rolling on ITV,” says Jan du Plessis, Director: M-Net Channels.

From the above video posting, I see Reeva has a badly bruised right eye.
That had to have happened prior to death due to blood flow needed for bruising.
Is this what he used his cricket bat for? To smack her in the face?
He is certainly bathed in blood.
Hard to believe all the blood came from OP shooting her thru the door and then kneeling by , if that is what he claimed. (IIRC, he carried/dragged her body down the stairs. Was blood evidence shown from that incidence.)
Wish forensics would explain the blood transfer onto OP. Some of that appears to be blow back, drip as well as smudge.

I still want an accounting of:
1. The blood found on the wall above the bed
2. OP was reported to have accessed a porn site early that morning prior to the killing.
Is this the reason why the cover  of his electronic device was found torn off?
Did Reeva come unglued, destroy his property, and OP was so enraged he killed her?
3, What explanation for the belted pants found directly beneath the second floor bathroom?

'I can smell the blood - I can feel the warmness of it on my hands':
Oscar Pistorius goes into graphic detail about killing Reeva Steenkamp in TV interview despite being 'too ill' to speak at his sentencing

"....null, less than a minute ago

Those tears are tears for himself. I wasn't there. However, the impression I get from him is not good. There is something twisted inside of him. I am pretty convinced that they had big issues. He has a God complex. And if she wanted to leave him, the only scenario he would allow was exactly what happened. I don't doubt he had abused her. Both mentally and physically. And she was simply trying to get away from him. It's amazing how he'd never be seen without his prosthetics in the past - yet now, every time I see a photo of him, he's on his stumps. It's completely contrived to make him look like a pathetic, little crippled man who is practically helpless and vulnerable. And how he must despise walking on those withered stumps, standing four feet tall. What a joke. The crying, throwing up, depression....It's because Oskar is sad for Oskar. He executed her. He knew what he was doing...."

Oscar Pistorius sentenced to six years in jail for murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp

Reuters | Jul 6, 2016, 02.08 PM IST

PRETORIA: South African Paralympic gold medallist Oscar Pistorius was sent to prison for six years on Wednesday for the 2013 murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, the latest twist in a trial that has gripped the world.

The state and large sections of the South African public had called for him to receive no less than the prescribed minimum 15-year sentence for murder, saying Pistorius had shown no remorse for the killing.

Judge Thokozile Masipa disagreed, accepting the defence's arguments for a lesser punishment.

"Public opinion may be loud and persistent but it can play no role in the decision of this court," Masipa said. "I am of the view that a long term in prison will not serve justice."


It was not clear whether the state would appeal the verdict.

~Snipped~

In her ruling on Wednesday, Masipa said that although the Steenkamp family had suffered great loss, Pistorius' life and career was also in ruins.

"The life of the accused shall also never be the same. He is a fallen hero and can never be at peace," she said.


~Snipped~

Members of the Women's League of the ruling African National Congress (ANCWL), who have attended the trial in support of the murdered Steenkamp, said the sentence handed down by Masipa was not sufficient.

"First five years, now six years? She is an embarrassment to the justice system," ANCWL spokeswoman Jacqueline Mofokeng said of Masipa. "It is an insult to women in this country."

~Snipped~

Steenkamp's father Barry, who said during sentencing hearings that Pistorius must pay for his crime, declined to comment on the prospects for an appeal.

Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 4m  
If the State does not appeal the sentence by #JudgeMasipa, #OscarPistorius will be out of jail in exactly 18months from today.


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 8m  
However, #OscarPistorius can, on completion of 1/4 (18months) apply to Judge Masipa to convert his sentence ito 276A(3).


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 10m
#OscarPistorius will become eligible for consideration to be placed on parole at the expiry of half of the term imposed, which is 3 years.


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 11m
People the section of the Correctional Services Act which prescribed 2/3 or 4/5s prior to consideration has been repealed. #OscarPistorius


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 36m  
So, immediately #OscarPistorius has served a quarter of the said 6yr sentence it can be converted to correctional supervision.


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 37m  
If the 6 yr sentence stands then in exactly 1 yr and 6 months #OscarPistorius will be back before #JudgeMasipa to apply to have it converted


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 42m  
A 9 year departure from the prescribed minimum. #JudgeMasipa you are truly one of a kind. #OscarPistorius


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 59m  
Besides #JudgeMasipa there is a time frame for appeals. Why insist on waiting in your chambers? Were you applying pressure?


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 1h  
In everything said in aggravation #JudgeMasipa agreed with one. #GerrieNel might as well have been at home, leaving it to her to decide.


Brenda Wardle ‏@BrendaWardle  · 1h  
All I am going to say is, if the State appeals, #JudgeMasipa would have done #OscarPistorius a disfavour not a favour. The SCA isn't blind.

LIVE: 'From now on, a dignified silence' - lawyer advises Steenkamps

2016-07-06 12:30

Paul Herman, News24

Barry and June Steenkamp's lawyer has advised them to remain dignified in their silence following the sentencing of Oscar Pistorius for the murder of their daughter Reeva.

Pistorius will not appeal sentence

A member of Oscar Pistorius's legal team said outside the High Court in Pretoria that they will not appeal his six-year jail sentence for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.

"We respect the decision of Judge Masipa and are not lodging an application for leave to appeal. Oscar will serve his sentence as handed down," Andrew Fawcett told reporters.

Advocate Dali Mpofu weighed in on that decision on Twitter, saying it was "wise", as an appeal could backfire on Pistorius.

Oscar Pistorius Is Sentenced to 6 Years for Murder of Girlfriend

BY NORIMITSU ONISHI JULY 6, 2016

~Snipped~

Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa of the High Court in Pretoria cited “mitigating” factors in handing out a sentence that was significantly shorter than the 15-year minimum requested by prosecutors.

Mr. Pistorius, the judge said, had shown genuine remorse in trying, repeatedly and unsuccessfully, to apologize in person to the victim’s parents.

~Snipped~

In handing out the six-year sentence, Judge Masipa surprised many legal experts who had predicted that a term of at least 10 years would split the difference between guidelines that call for at least 15 years in prison for murder but that also allow for a reduction based on other considerations.

Both sides can appeal the judge’s sentence, leaving the possibility that the case may not be over. Mr. Pistorius’s lawyers said they would not file an appeal.

Perhaps anticipating a challenge by prosecutors, Judge Masipa said in her ruling Wednesday morning that she would be available to receive a request for an appeal that same day.


Among other mitigating factors, the judge said she considered the circumstances of the shooting and Mr. Pistorius’s disability.

She also noted that Mr. Pistorius was a first-time offender who had shown himself to be a good candidate for rehabilitation. “I am of the view that a long-term imprisonment will not serve justice,” Judge Masipa said.

~Snipped~

Marius du Toit, a criminal defense lawyer, former prosecutor and judge who has closely followed the trial, said the sentence, though “erring on the side of leniency,” clearly reflected the judge’s belief that Mr. Pistorius was guilty of what amounts to an accidental murder, not one with intent.

Mr. du Toit said that prosecutors could decide to contest the sentence by asking Judge Masipa to grant leave to appeal or, failing that, by petitioning the Supreme Court of Appeals directly.

“But is it something that another court will interfere with? I somehow don’t think so,” he said. “I think we may have reached the end of this matter.”

It seems that Oscar has one heck of a loyal fan-girl in Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa. Sad. Not much justice for Reeva, again. I hope he doesn't get early release like the last time.

Rigged? Yep. Makes me dislike him even more...

I laughed at his pathetic hobbling in the court.
He had already demonstrated how well he could get along on his stumps...!
A "poor, pathetic me" mentality had been his best friend all is life.

Revealed, Playboy model planned a '£12million plot to free drug dealing prison pal of Oscar Pistorius' involving a pistol hidden inside a treadmill and a private jet ready to fly them to new life in Argentina


"...A playboy pin-up will today appear in court over her role in a daring £12m jail break for Oscar Pistorius’ prison mate in a plot worthy of a Hollywood script.

Marissa Christopher was to act as paymaster for a string of corrupt officials colluding with her lover, gangster Radovan Krejcir, in the audacious heist that would involve an armed gang storming the prison compound and a private plane to a new life in the Argentine sunshine.

The bold conspiracy was foiled when guard uniforms, guns, ammunition and plans of the jail house were found during a raid on Krejcir’s cell earlier this year. ...."

"....The double amputee’s tiny cell (pictured) was searched, prison bosses revealed, and a computer hard drive was seized during the time he was was imprisoned alongside the gangster...."

He is totally unbelievable. This info should be used to ADD to any sentence he will receive. Even the one currently on appeal.
This was known PRIOR to his last sentencing!!! Never released until now????

'Blade Runner' Oscar Pistorius treated for wrist injuries, denies suicide attempt

Published August 07, 2016

"....Oscar Pistorius was treated for minor wrist injuries at a hospital and has been returned to a South African jail where the Olympian is serving a six-year sentence for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, prison officials said Sunday.

The report of injuries to Pistorius, who denied he had attempted suicide, came as athletes compete at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Pistorius and his coach said before Steenkamp's 2013 killing that they wanted to retire together at the Rio games.

Pistorius told officials that he suffered the injuries after falling out of bed, said Singabakho Nxumalo, a spokesman for the South Africa's correctional services department. ..."



".... During Pistorius' sentencing hearing in June, a psychologist testified for the defense that the athlete was a "broken" man whose mental state had deteriorated over the last two years, and that he should be hospitalized and not jailed. Prosecutors have challenged such assessments, saying Pistorius has an aggressive streak and may have played up vulnerabilities in an attempt to win leniency from the judge presiding over his case.

Commenting on the decision to send Pistorius to a hospital, Nxumalo, the correctional services official, referred to past reports of tension between the convicted murderer and a prison nurse who testified about alleged confrontations over medication and other issues while the runner was serving an earlier manslaughter sentence. Pistorius' defense team suggested those reports were exaggerated....."

Thank goodness the prosecution filed to appeal....AGAIN....the woefully little 6 year sentence. Hopefully they can obtain the justice that Masipa denied the Steenkamp's. IMO

Yes, Oscar seems to be having a difficult time accepting consequences for his actions. He could have been at the Olympic games right now instead of sitting in prison. No pity from me.
