South African Athlete, Oscar Pistorius Received his Verdict!

“The state has not proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty of premeditated murder, “

With those words  the Judge Thokozile Masipa delivered her verdict, that found Oscar Pistorius not guilty of premeditated murdered. She called him “evasive”and “not candid with the court” during the process.


“There are not enough facts.” and add “is clear that his conduct was negligent.” Judge Masipa added.

The 27-years athlete shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 14, 2013 when he thought it was a burglary at his home, while the state’s argument was he shot her intentionally.

In tears, the South African double-amputee athlete receive the verdict. Blade Runner, as he is known, was found culpable of homicide, a lesser charge, and faces  a suspended sentenced to a long jail term. Sentencing by the judge is expected tomorrow, Friday.
