— Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to six years in prison — well below South Africa’s minimum sentence of 15 years for murder — and will be eligible for parole after three years, in a decision announced Wednesday morning at a courtroom in Pretoria, South Africa.

Pistorius was calm as the decision was announced, embracing family members before being led away.

Judge Thokozile Masipa said there were “substantial and compelling circumstances” that caused her to give the double-amputee Olympic runner a reduced sentence, citing the fact that he tried to help girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after shooting her multiple times through a bathroom door in the early morning hours of Valentine’s Day in 2013. Masipa also noted that Pistorius is a “good candidate for rehabilitation” who is not likely to re-offend.

A Pistorius spokesman said the 29-year-old would not appeal the decision. “The family accepts the judgment,” Anneliese Burgess said.

Prosecutors have the option to appeal in an attempt to get a longer sentence.

Pistorius, who claims he thought Steenkamp was an intruder when he shot her, was acquitted of murder by Masipa in 2014 after a seven-month trial, convicted only of manslaughter and serving one year in prison. His conviction was upgraded to murder last year by South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal.

— Jaguars running back Denard Robinson was not injured in a single-car accident over the weekend, despite being discovered asleep in his car partially submerged in a pond, according to reports out of Jacksonville, Florida.

Robinson apparently fell asleep at the wheel around 4:20 a.m. Sunday morning and his car crashed into a retention pond. A police officer helped a woman out of the car and woke up Robinson.

Authorities said Robinson was not impaired and should not face a DUI charge.

Robinson tweeted Tuesday that he was grateful to God. Wrote Robinson: I should not have been driving that late or when I was that tired, but again, I’m just glad that everyone was safe. God Bless.

— A group that includes 212 former Penn State football players petitioned the school to bring back a statue of disgraced former coach Joe Paterno. The statue was taken down in 2012 during the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse case, shortly before Paterno’s death from lung cancer.

The group delivered a letter to Penn State president Eric Barron and the school’s board of trustees on Tuesday, demanding the statue be returned and the administration apologize to Paterno’s widow, Sue.

“This a common act of decency, which is both warranted and long overdue,” the letter reads.

While victims’ advocates criticized the request, the school responded by repeating that “there will be a time and place to acknowledged Joe Paterno’s many contributions,” but any communication between the president and the Paterno family would be private.

Enormous shoutouts to Pete Blackburn for stumbling into this group while binging on CHVRCHES music. Apparently there is a group called Twinkle Twinkle Twinkle Rock Star that does lullaby versions of rock and pop songs. They don’€™t appear to be very popular, but that changes now.

At first I thought they just made this one CHVRCHES cover album, which seemed really weird, but since “The Mother We Share” nearly brought me to tears, I let it slide. A simple ol’€™ Google search revealed that their existence is not at all news and that they’€™ve been pumping out the hits for a while now.

Huge congrats to new parents, as they get to listen to this. Huge congrats to babies, as they get to listen to this. Huge “it’€™s definitely OK for you to listen; it’€™s not creepy” to everyone else.
