Very powerful testimony today from Kim Martin, Reeva's cousin. Another dignified, quality lady from that fine family. Hopefully her very emotional testimony will make it harder for that judge to give OP house arrest'. It will certainly make the outcry even louder if OP 'walks'!

Fingers crossed for good news on your birthday John!

He is going to walk........oops sorry no pun intended.

I think it will be a travesty of justice, knew this would be the outcome from the beginning, he is a CELEBRITY, they can get away with everything as they bring money into the country.

If he does I hope the parents can do something anything to make this man pay for what he did.

I had great respect for Barry Roux up until I heard his pathetic crawling speech on behalf of Pistorius this morning.  He is totally wrong about the penalty, the sentence is nothing to do with punishment but everything to do with the deprivation of liberty.  Pistorius intended to kill, this was not an accident.

Gerrie Nel on the other hand has a point, a house arrest sentence is a farce considering what he did.

Nothing less than a custodial sentence will do!  His disability should not be a factor in sentencing him.

I thought Gerrie Nell started off with a great closing argument then half way through just lost his thread! He finished off like a damp squib and didn't have an answer ready when the judge asked how long the sentence should be! I expected Gerrie to be demanding a prison sentence and to close the case quoting the words of Kim Martin!

I really like Gerrie Nell but he should have done better today!

Glad to see the judge asking questions of the prisons official yesterday and "what sentence" today. It seems like she is actually considering prison for Oscar! I do hope so!

I do believe it will be prison now, but we will have to wait until tuesday to know for sure

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to the number of years the honourable judge might impose?

My guess is 5 years with 2.5 of those suspended .... so 2 yrs 6 months in prison. Woefully inadequate but the best I can guess judging that judge!

No idea really as I don't know how these things work.  Culpable homicide and negligently discharging a firearm.  The prosecution have called for 10 years so they must think the max for culpable homicide of 15 years is out of the question.  I cant recall the maximum sentence for the firearm offence - 5 years I think.  So out of a max of 20 I think Tim's 5 is a little on the low side.  I would go for 10 years max to 7.5 min for the two offences.

I find it hard to second guess this judge, she isn't giving much away.  I will go for three years if she even sends him to jail at all.

If he goes to prison(not sure he will) 2 to 5 years. Difficult to estimate with this Judge. We'll know tomorrow and I hope my computer lasts that long.  8(8-)) New one coming tomorrow  ?{)(**
