Oscar Pistorius convicted of culpable homicide

Oscar Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide today for shooting his lover Reeva Steenkamp, but walked free on bail ahead of what could still be a stiff prison sentence. He faces from a "fine to 15 years in prison".

South African Judge Thokozile Masipa acquitted Pistorius of murder, but found he acted "negligently" in killing the blonde law graduate and fashion model by firing at her through a bathroom door, claiming he mistook her for an intruder.

The judge didn't believe the 27-year-old athlete whose journey from disabled infant to Olympic sprinter inspired the world will attempt to run despite the fact that he has sold all his property (to pay his legal fees).

Oscar will remain in the custody of his uncle until October 13th when he will return to court for sentencing.
