The Paralympian will hear his fate from the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein today.

It is D-Day for Oscar Pistorius!

He will find out whether the sentence handed out by Judge Thokozile Masipa will be overturned resulting in him going back to jail.

The state argued that Oscar should have been convicted of murder instead of culpable homicide and that Judge Masipa did not correctly apply legal principles as well as consider all circumstantial evidence.

His defence however, argued that the appeal should be dismissed as Masipa’s ruling was correct.

Oscar was released on parole after serving only 10 months of his five year sentence. He is currently serving the remainder of his jail term at home.

Two years ago he shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day.

Today’s Supreme Court of Appeal’s ruling will be binding for all other courts in the country
