FIVE YEARS in prison for Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius was dramatically jailed for five years today for killing his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp – but could spend as little as ten months behind bars.

The disgraced Paralympian wiped his eyes as he was handed a five-year prison term after the judge ruled that a non-custodial sentence would send the ‘wrong message to the community’.

As he was led down to the cells, Miss Steenkamp’s mother, June, smiled as she told of a sense of ‘closure’ after a seventh-month trial, but said it ‘would not magic Reeva back.’
