Oscar Pistorius could be out of prison in just three years after he was found guilty of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, a source close to the trial has said.The Paralympian was sentenced to five years for manslaughter last October but he served less than a year of that before he was placed under house arrest in his uncle’s mansion.Pistorius, 29, could now be rearrested and jailed before Christmas day after five Supreme Court judges upgraded that conviction to murder.The minimum sentence for murder in South Africa is 15 years but ‘he can even get ten years and eventuallyonly serve 30 per cent, so three years’, said a source at Pretoria’s High Court.
