Oscar Pistorius murder sentence increased from 6 to 13 years
Oscar Pistorius jail sentence has being increased from six years to thirteen years and five months for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
The south supreme court of appeal increased the jail term after state argued that his original term of six years was “shockingly lenient”.
Meanwhile some quarters have argued that he should have been issued a lifetime imprisonment.
According to newsmen, the athlete was in jail as at the time of the recent ruling.
Recall that Pistorius was jailed in July 2016 after being found guilty in the murder of 29-year-old Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day 2013.
It’s very strange Pistorius has not being given a life sentence following the murder of an innocent woman. Who actually issued him licence to possess a gun? What a wicked world we live in!
