Will Oscar Pistorius Go To Jail?

Judge Masipa is currently reading files after files as she reviews evidences and testimonies before verdict.

As we countdown to the final hour before Oscar Pistorius' final verdict is pronounced in a court in Pretoria, South Africa today, Sept. 11, many question if he could walk free or be sent behind bars.

Judge Masipa is currently reading files after files as she reviews evidences and testimonies before verdict.

The Judge began with reading the charges of the victim which included illegal ownership and use of a fire arm/weapon, voluntary and/or involuntary murder as well as testimonies from witnesses.

The judge also explained the 'common case facts' on the murder charge. These are facts which aren't disputed. They include:

  • Sprinter shoots
  • Uses a criket bat to break the door
  • Emotional after shooting his girlfriend on Valentine's Day 2013.

The judge further looked into the issues of the case which she says are 'irrelevant' during the last hours in court.

Oscar Pistorius has been charged with four counts of murder and possession of firearm. It remains unclear if Judge Masipa will dish out the murder verdict first.

But will all these send Oscar to jail?
