Oscar apparently 'lost it' over appeal ruling

2014-12-11 14:04

Convicted paralympian Oscar Pistorius ain't happy about the appeal ruling.

Judge Thokozile Masipa granted the state's application to appeal Oscar's conviction on Wednesday morning.  If the appeal on Oscar's conviction is successful his sentence will be converted from culpable homicide to murder and he could face a minimum of 15 years behind bars. 

Times Live is reporting that Oscar lost his temper after hearing about the state's victory. A fellow inmate at Kgosi Mampuru prison apparently told the paper that the Blade Runner 'lost it.'

"He was listening to it [Judge Thokozile Masipa's ruling] on the radio. He got up and stomped. He went straight to the gym. He started lifting weights like it was going out of fashion. He is p***ed off," the prisoner said.

"Who wouldn't be? He was definitely expecting to be out by August," added the inmate.
