A judge has granted bail to Oscar Pistorius, the double amputee athlete who has been charged in the shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day. Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair announced his decision on Friday to grant Pistorius bail at the amount of $113,000, with only $11,000 due up front. His decision was based on the fact that the state did not provide enough evidence to prove a watertight case.

The judge ruled that Pistorius was not a flight risk but he must stay away from his home and witnesses, he is prohibited from drinking alcohol, he must turn in his passport and firearms,  and must report to the police station twice a week.

Be sure to tune in at 3 p.m. for the latest with the Pistorius.
