Convicted killer Oscar Pistorius has been handed a sentence of five years in prison by Judge Thokozile Masipa in the High Court in Pretoria.
He was sentenced to five years for culpable homicide and three years, wholly suspended for the Tasha’s shooting.
The two sentences will run concurrently.
Senior lecturer in the Public Law Department at the University of Cape Town Kelly Phelps spoke to John to unpack the sentencing.
Phelps says Judge Masipa has not been lenient on Pistorius, she has used what was legitimately available to her in law.
