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.”
