Oscar Pistorius was handed a five-year prison sentence in the death of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. According to the AP, Pistorius was taken immediately by police on Tuesday after hearing his sentence. Pistorius had no reaction as he was handed his sentence by Judge Thokozile Masipa, who cited the “gross negligence” in the Valentines’ Day killing of Steenkamp in his bathroom.

Just last month Pistorious was found guilty of culpable homicide, but not guilty of premeditated murder. Now while he was handed a five year sentence, he could be out in about 10 months and serve the rest of teh sentence on house arrest, according to legal experts.
