Oscar Pistorius convicted of culpable homicide in death of girlfriend

By

Paralympian Oscar Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide on Friday after being acquitted of murder charges in the death of girlfriend Reeve Steenkamp.

Culpable homicide carries a maximum sentence of 15 years. Pistorius was also acquitted of two of three firearms charges after a judge said state prosecutors “failed to establish that the accused is guilty.”
