    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.

    Good morning all from a blue sunny autumn day in the Balkans. I'm a bit nervous so can imagine how all the participants are feeling at this moment. Anyway, here's hoping for a 'good' decision by M'lady and if not, an appeal from the State. I'll just repeat from the closed thread a couple of tweets to get us going.

    David Dadic @DavidDadic
    The only way this matter doesn't carry on is if Osacr gets a long enough sentence to keep the state appeal at bay & he accepts it. Unlikely.

    AND

    #OscarTrial if he receives a custodial sentence, the Defence is expected to appeal. BB

    If he gets 8 years...even if the last four are suspended (with him on probation) I will personally feel that some kind of justice has been done for Reeva. It's not enough, but it will do. Four years incarceration for a 27 year old will feel like a lifetime.

    What's making me really nervous is that he'll be granted immediate bail and will go home to Uncle Fester's luxury home tonight.

    It really is time for him to start paying for what he did.

    Good morning :-)

    Consensus on the street outside the #Pistorius courthouse is that the runner should get 10 years

    In case you didn't see it, JudgeJudi - I just mistakenly attributed your OW thread to Voltaire. Then realised what I'd done.

    Apologising here, in case you missed it there

    Good morning/afternoon/evening from Bonnie Scotland!

    Somebody posted that if he got any kind of prison sentence, he'd be handcuffed virtually immediately so I do hope he doesn't get preferential treatment as far as that's concerned too. The Steenkamp's at least should be given the satisfaction of seeing his photograph beamed around the world and 'going down'.

    Brenda Wardle:

    1. The recommendations for correctional supervision must deal with limitations & rights of movement, employment and domestic arrangements.

    2. It remains to be seen to what extent #GerrieNel went in rubbishing the reports of #Vergeer & #Maringa. #PistoriusTrial

    3. If #JudgeMasipa rejects the reports & the recommendations therein, then correctional supervision ito of 276(1)(i) & (h) can't be imposed.

    A few questions:

    - Do the lawyers find out the verdict before JM proclaims it?

    - Does OP find out too? or is it really a bombshell she drops right then and there?

    - Will we ever know the truth about certain elements, post-trial (when it seems more people are interviewed etc.)? Like where Frank went? What about those jeans outside? etc.?
