    Oscar Pistorius: South Africa gears up for its 'trial of the century'

    (CNN) -- He was one of South Africa's favorite sons, an amputee track star who defied all the odds and sprinted into the hearts of millions during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was a staggering beauty with the brains to match, a law graduate and model whose star was on the rise.

    Trial Discussion Thread #51 - 14.11.9, Day 41 ~announcement of the verdict~

    The last lap in the marathon murder trial of South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius gets underway Thursday.

    And when the race is run, Pistorius will either be a free man with a ruined reputation — or a fallen Olympian facing years behind bars.
    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crim...icle-1.1933398

    Clues about the looming verdict could emerge during the reading, but Pistorius will only know the judgment for or against him at the end of what is likely to be a long reading that will grip the world's attention.
    http://www.people.com/article/oscar-...us-verdict-due

    The judgement at his trial is likely to be well over 100 pages. The judge will go through each charge, summing up the prosecution and defence cases and analysing the evidence.
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-29143540

    Regardless of the verdict handed down on Thursday, it is likely to be appealed by either the defence or prosecution if either disagrees with it. Even after the four months of the trial, and over a year and a half after Steenkamp was killed, the trial could last even longer.
    http://www.channel4.com/news/oscar-p...what-to-expect

    After the sentence is delivered, Pistorius will have a chance to appeal both conviction and sentence. He can also be granted bail at the judge's discretion. However, these bail conditions will come with heavy conditions such as house arrest or reporting to a police station once a week.

    Justice for the most important person in this trial.
    Any trial, is less a quest for the truth than a struggle between “two competing narratives”. It’s simple: “the story that can best withstand the attrition of the rules of evidence is the story that wins” Janet Malcolm.
