(CNN) — A judge found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide — the South African term for unintentionally — but illegally — killing a person. In three other weapons charges, he was found not guilty of two — a car sunroof shooting incident and illegal possession of ammunition at his house. But she found him guilty of one weapons charge involving a shooting at a restaurant.

The maximum prison sentence for culpable homicide is 15 years. Sentencing could be weeks away and will come after more legal argument in the Oscar Pistorius case.
