Sky Sports reporter. A lover of Olympic sports, with a particular love of cycling. Usual disclaimers.
If you enjoy grand tales of Grand Tours I'll be chatting to @richardmoore73 @mrtimmoore & @m_xl at Lord's on Sun, 8pm tinyurl.com/om9bndk
RT @richardmoore73: Come and hear @SkyOrla @mrtimmoore & @m_xl and me tell tales from the Tours, this Sunday at 8pm at Lord's: http://t.co/…
And so back to the company of the three scribes keeping me company on my first week off work #lswf2014 #cyclingtales pic.twitter.com/ROoumGss4U
According to terms of sentence, after 10 months in prison Pistorius could serve remainder of sentence under house arrest.
Spokesperson for Pistorius' legal team confirms to Sky has to spend at least 1/6 of term in prison. Could apply for release after 10 months.
@matthewcpinsent From my long drawn-out days studying law in this land, no legal system swift. Not familiar with SA but not surprised slow.
Pistorius jailed for 5 years for culpable homicide. 3 years suspended sentence for firearms offence.
RT @AlexCrawfordSky: #PistoriusTrial Judge: 'non custodial sentence wd send wrong message but long sentence also not appropriate'
Also interesting how many impatient with judge and clamouring for news of Pistorius sentence. This shouldn't be made-for-telly justice.
Some still tweeting 'sentence' of Oscar Pistorius when judge speaking about another case as process of referring to case law.No sentence yet
