A judge just GRANTED Oscar Pistorius bail, saying the Olympian is NOT a flight risk.
Pistorius was in court — along with 2 members of Reeva Steenkamp“s family — as the decision went down.
Before ruling, the judge asked the prosecutor an interesting question — If Pistorius” story was that he believed an intruder was in his bathroom, why didn”t he “stage” a break-in to make his story more believable The prosecutor conceded, “The fact that we have only one survivor of that tragic night is difficult for the state.”
The prosecutor argued … proving premeditation doesn”t mean Pistorius had to plan the murder the night before … “He planned it that night when she locked herself in [the bathroom].
Pistorius” lawyer suggested that the charge should be lowered — to “culpable homicide” — meaning the Olympian didn”t have the intent to kill Steenkamp at all but that it was a “tragic mistake.”
And Pistorius” running coach said before today”s hearing if he gets out on bail, he”ll train Pistorius to “get his mind kind of clear.”
