Oscar Pistorius Will Leave Prison Next Week Just 1 Year After Manslaughter Conviction
Shamed Olympian Oscar Pistorius will be moved from a South African prison to house arrest next Tuesday.
Olympian and Paralympian Oscar Pistorius will be moved from prison to house arrest next Tuesday, nearly a year after he was convicted of killing his girlfriend, a South African Parole Board says.
Pistorius, 28, has been jailed for 12 months and will spend the rest of his sentence under what South African law calls “correctional supervision,” according to the parole board.
According to reports, a lawyer for the victim’s family says they believed he would get an early release and are opposed to it. The lawyer also mentioned that the family said nothing could bring their daughter back.
While under house arrest, the runner will face restrictions such as gun ownership and will continue psychotherapy, reports BBC.
Pistorius, also known as “The Blade Runner,” shot to fame at the 2012 London Olympics as the first double-amputee to ever participate in the event.
He also gained more notoriety following the 2012 Paralympic games in London setting a Paralympic record in the men’s 400 meters and winning a Gold medal for the race.
