A judge found Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide, the South African term for unintentionally — but unlawfully — killing a person.

The verdict comes a day after Judge Thokozile Masipa cleared Pistorius of murder in the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp — but he could still end up behind bars.

The maximum prison sentence for culpable homicide is 15 years.

Sentencing could be weeks away and will come after more legal argument.

The verdict also dealt with three other charges, all weapons-related.

He was found not guilty of two — a car sunroof shooting incident and illegal possession of ammunition at his house.

The judge found Pistorius guilty of the third: a charge involving a shooting at a restaurant.
