    From this CNN article:

    http://edition.cnn.com/2016/06/13/wo...ing/index.html

    A defense source told CNN that Pistorius is a "broken man," and they would have put him on the stand to defend himself, but he is psychologically incapable of it (we will have to wait and see if that turns out to be the case). It will be the first time the public gets a good look at Pistorius since sentencing part one. The defense will likely focus on the media coverage and public treatment of Pistorius as one of their arguments.
    On the prosecution side, we may see a family member or close friend of Steenkamp brought as a witness in what could be a harrowing testimony

    Seems like he won't be taking the stand.

    Hello everyone.

    It's nice to have the forum open again to discuss things and it will be good to finally get some 'closure' on this case.

    I'm interested to see whether Pistorius testifies or not - I somewhat doubt it, but it would be interesting and far more of an indicator as to how he's doing than a controlled and edited TV interview. I wonder whether Gerrie Nel has been able to see his TV interview and if he might be able to use it against Oscar in some way?

    I'm not optimistic that he will get anything close to the 15 year minimum sentence however. My guess is that it will be around 10 years minus time served, but we'll see how the arguments play out.

    Oddly, he was perfectly "psychologically capable" of standing up and giving his version when Roux was questioning him.....he only became "broken" when directly faced with the contradictions & improbabilities of his story. Even Masipa noted that.

    He's run out of excuses, as far as I can see. Roux is going to have his work cut out.

    It looks like it's a little chilly there. Everyone is bundled up.

    I'm not looking forward to seeing/hearing Masipa, again. I'm sure she's a very nice woman in real life but, as a judge in this trial, she really drives me nuts.

    Pistorius family member tells me they hope he will escape with a non-custodial sentence,which technically can happen due to degree of murder. "The facts haven't changed, they have just applied a different term (murder) to what happened," the #OscarPistorius family member said.

    to all of us. Finally.

    Great to see posters have returned, to hopefully see some justice for Reeva,

    I'm with this live feed, anyone else got a better one?

    KMaughan doesn't appear to be tweeting, BB is though

    Defence will start proceedings. Expect psych reports and evidence to shows he's remorseful and rehabilitated.
    Barry and June Steenkamp are here. OP’s brother, father, two uncles, three aunts and other relatives too. BB
    Steenkamp’s cousin Kim Marten is also here. She testified during culpable homicide sentencing. BB
    prosecutor Andrea Johnson and another prosecutor are in court. No sign yet of defence team. BB
    Hawks forensic expert Francois Moller is here. So is Chris Mangena. BB
    the hope is that the sentence will be handed down by Friday.
    #OscarPistorius could testify himself, but it's risky and unlikely. Will he submit himself to Nel cross-examination? BB

    Outrageous. Presume that is Arnold.

    Hi All & Cottonweaver,
    I'm travelling & on iphone but will try to
    watch online while trying to follow the thread here...because our commentary is the best, true. Incredibly curious about Masipa's new sentence and I also suspect a very dramatic Pistorius mitigation concerto later too. Thanks all for the posts to come!

    Barry is supposed to be testifying and saying a final goodbye to Reeva.
