At exactly 9: 34am today South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to jailed for five years for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Judge Thokozile Masipa, issuing the ruling in court in Pretoria, also gave Pistorius a three-year suspended sentence for a firearms charge. Pistorius has been taken to the cells.
The prosecution had called for a minimum 10-year sentence; the defence for community service and house arrest.
Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide but cleared of murder.
Masipa said there must be a balance between retribution, deterrence and rehabilitation and also that she was sure prisons were equipped to cater for the requirements of a special needs inmate.
Details of the sentencing will be updated later......
