The trial started 90 minutes late in a South African courtroom on March 3. After over a year of conflict and speculation, the time had come for Oscar to plead his case. He former athlete pleaded not guilty to charges of murdering his girlfriend Reeva, as well as several other counts relating to shooting guns in public in unrelated incidents, and illegal possession of ammunition, reports Fox News.

Oscar looked serious during his court appearance, wearing a dark gray suit, and black tie. The once decorated paralympian wrote in a pad and sometimes passed notes to his defense lawyers. At one point he smiled to a person sitting behind him.

The Olympian’s murder trial is being broadcast live on TV in South Africa and throughout the world.

Oscar’s defense lawyer, Kenny Oldwadge, laid out the athlete’s legal strategy, reading a statement that Oscar had written. The statement says the killing was an accident and that there were inconsistencies in the state’s case against him.

On Valentine’s Day in 2013 Oscar shot and killed then girlfriend, Reeva while she was in the bathroom in the couple’s South African compound.

If Oscar is convicted of the murder he could be sent to prison for at least 25 years before the chance of parole.

What do you think HollywoodLifers, did Oscar do it, did he pull the trigger on purpose, or did he honestly make the biggest mistake of his life? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
