No appeal for Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius was denied the right to appeal by the South African Constitutional Court. His earlier conviction for culpable homicide was overturned in December 2015. He will be sentenced for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp on 18th of April and faces a jail sentence of a minimum of 15 years. Time already spent in jail may be included in the expected April sentence.
