Judge Thokozile Masipa looks on during the resentencing hearing of Paralympic gold medalist Oscar Pistorius ,for the 2013 murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, at Pretoria High Court,A South African judge said on Friday she would not grant permission to state prosecutors to appeal Oscar Pistorius' six-year murder sentence, saying their petition had no reasonable prospects of success. Judge Thokozile Masipa Masipa had sentenced the Paralympic gold medallist in July for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in 2013, but the prosecution had said the decision was too lenient. Pistorius' defence had earlier argued the state was prejudiced and had dragged the case on for too long "I'm not persuaded that there are reasonable prospects of success on appeal or that another court may find differently," she said in her ruling.

Thokozile Masipa -- the same judge who imposed the sentence last month -- said in the High Court in Johannesburg that she was not persuaded there was a "reasonable prospect of success on appeal". The prosecution had been pushing for a longer sentence against the fallen 29-year-old sprint star over the 2013 murder of Reeva Steenkamp.
