  • At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Pistorius became the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics
  • On Valentine's Day in 2013, Pistorius fatally shot his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, in his Pretoria home

  • At his trial the following year, Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide
  • He received a five-year prison sentence for culpable homicide and a concurrent three-year suspended prison sentence for a separate reckless endangerment conviction
  • In November 2014, prosecutors asked the sentencing judge for permission to appeal the verdict
  • Permission was granted in December, and the case was presented to a five-person panel at the Supreme Court of Appeal
  • He was released on house arrest, and on 3 December 2015 the Appeal Court overturned the culpable homicide verdict and convicted him of murder
  • Pistorius appeared in court on 13 June 2016 to start the sentence hearing for the murder conviction which concluded on 15 June 2016 after Judge Thokozile Masipa adjourned the sentencing until 6 July 2016 when she extended Pistorius' sentence to six years imprisonment for murder
