Inside The Prison Where Oscar Pistorius Will Serve His Sentence

Inside The Prison Where Oscar Pistorius Will Serve His Sentence

Oscar Pistorius has received his sentence for shooting former girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a toilet door on Valentine's Day in 2013 at his home in Pretoria.

The Paralympian was given a maximum sentence of six years, despite there being a minimum sentence of 15 years for murder in South Africa.

The 29-year-old has already spent one year in the Kgosi Mampuru II prison, also known as Pretoria Central Prison, and he is expected to serve the rest of his sentence there.

In the prison, gang members rule.

According to The Sun, they will rape other inmates, and use HIV infection as punishment, infecting those who don't obey them.

Pistorius will be given a standard issue orange prison uniform, and is thought to be put up in a cell with a grey metal bed with two prison-issue pillows and a stainless steel basin next to his bed.

In the disgraced sports star's first television interview after the shooting, Pistorius claimed that Steenkamp would not want him to spend the rest of the life behind bars.
