    At least he got some jail time plus three years' suspended sentence for firearms offences but it's not enough for the killing of Reeva.

    Oscar Pistorius Will Be Released on Parole After 10 Months in Jail

    After being sentenced in October to five years in prison for the death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, the parole board at the South African prison he’s incarcerated in has recommended that Oscar Pistorius be released on parole in August.

    The AP reports that the recommendation was made because of Pistorius’s good behavior in prison, and that any more information about the details of his parole will not be shared. The prosecution isn’t letting Pistorius go quietly, however; the BBC reports that South African Supreme Court of Appeal will hear the state’s argument for appealing the dismissal of his intentional murder charge in November. (Pistorius was found guilty for culpable murder.)

    A lawyer for Steenkamp’s parents told the BBC that the family is “shocked” Pistorius is leaving prison, adding that 10 months is “not enough for taking a life”.

    Not surprised. South Africa is still deeply corrupt regime, including law enforcement and the judiciary. You can be sure that Oscar's freedom has been purchased by his wealthy Boer friends and family. I am also sure that he will be hailed as a hero by certain sections of the community and will put himself out there as an "ambassador" for overcoming disability in adversity, resilience, self esteem, blah blah and make a lot of money in the process.

    With early release from prison, what's next for Oscar Pistorius?

    After serving 10 months for shooting his girlfriend to death, Paralympic runner Oscar Pistorius is expected to be freed from prison in South Africa and go into house arrest Friday.

    From globally acclaimed athlete to convicted killer, Oscar Pistorius' fall from grace culminated with a five-year sentence in the shooting death of his girlfriend. The judgment was imposed for the charge of culpable homicide.

    Pistorius was sentenced to five years in prison in October 2014 after he was convicted of killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine's Day two years ago.

    He was convicted of culpable homicide -- killing her unintentionally but unlawfully -- after he said he mistook her for an intruder.

    Here is what's next for the man known as the Blade Runner.

    When will Pistorius be released?

    He is expected to be released Friday to correctional supervision after serving one-sixth of a five-year prison sentence. Public outrage has followed a parole board decision to recommend early release. But legal experts say Pistorius' early release was a virtual certainty from the day he was sentenced.

    Why so soon?

    South Africa's prisons are overcrowded and underfunded, so parole boards often consider correctional supervision, said Stephan Terblanche, an expert in sentencing and a professor at the University of South Africa.

    Pistorius was sentenced under a specific section of the Criminal Procedure Act. It entitles the parole board to place the prisoner on corrective supervision at the one-sixth mark of a sentence -- in his case, 10 months into his five-year sentence.

    Early release is a norm in the nation as long as an inmate behaves well in prison and isn't considered a danger to society.

    What will be the conditions for his parole?

    A Correctional Services representative told CNN the terms of his supervision will not be released. But they typically include some form of house arrest, electronic monitoring, community service, required employment -- and no alcohol, drugs or firearms. We know that after his release, Pistorius will serve out the rest of his sentence at his uncle's house in an affluent Pretoria suburb.

    Will he race competitively again?

    It's highly unlikely. Regardless of the conditions of his release, the International Paralympic Committee has said he can compete only after his five-year sentence is completed. Banned from the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics, the next Olympic Games he would be eligible for would be Tokyo in 2020. By then, he will be 33 years old, making a return that much more difficult.

    What are the Steenkamps saying?

    Reeva Steenkamp's parents submitted a letter urging the parole board not to release him early. "Incarceration of 10 months for taking a life is simply not enough," the letter read in part. "We fear that this will not send out the proper message and serve as a deterrent it should."

    In the same letter, June and Barry Steenkamp wrote that they had forgiven Pistorius, but that a person found guilty of a crime must be held accountable for his actions.

    Is this over?

    Far from it.

    The National Prosecuting Authority presents its written arguments Monday to the Supreme Court of Appeals in Bloemfontein. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel won a chance to appeal Pistorius' conviction of culpable homicide (manslaughter). The prosecuting authority has steadfastly maintained that he should be convicted of murder. The state's appeal is set to take place in November.

    What does the appeal involve?

    The state's appeal is based on a question of law -- specifically: Did Judge Thokozile Masipa correctly interpret the principle of dolus eventualis, or intent to kill in regard to the evidence presented during trial? The appeal is based on a narrow question of law, so no new witnesses will be called and there will be no new evidence presented.

    The judges will instead make their ruling based on written and oral arguments, and the hundreds of pages of documents and pertinent sections of the transcript from the previous trial.

    What happens if the state wins its appeal?

    It would open the door for a potential resentencing. But regardless of what happens, the drawn-out legal battle will continue to cost Pistorius financially. His lawyers are some of South Africa's most well-known -- and the most expensive. The sponsorships are gone, and many of his cars and property have been sold as the legal battle continues. This is not just a legal fight for him; it will be a financial fight as well.

    Oscar Pistorius leaves prison after 12 months

    © Mirrorpix / Splash NewsOscar Pistorius leaves court.


    Oscar Pistorius walked out of a South African prison on his prosthetic legs Monday after serving just 12 months of a five-year sentence for killing girfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

    “Yes it is true,” his lawyer, Brian Webber told The Citizen, a South African newspaper. “He is at home already.”

    Home being his uncle’s Pretoria mansion, where Pistorius will serve out the rest of his sentence under house arrest.

    As part of his probation, the double-amputee Olympian will be required to meet with Steenkamp’s parents “if and when they agree to meet him,” said correctional services minister Michael Masutha.

    The goal of the meeting is to help Barry and June Steenkamp cope with their loss, said Masutha.

    Pistorius, a gun nut, will also be barred from owning firearms and be required to see a shrink, said Masutha.

    The Steenkamps have expressed a desire in the past to meet with Pistorius, who was nicknamed Blade Runner because of the scythe-like prosthetics he uses to run. But only on their terms.

    Pistorius was set to be released Tuesday from a Pretoria prison after serving 12 months of a five-year sentence for killing Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day 2013.

    The short-fused 28-year-old athlete was convicted of culpable homicide by a judge last October for fatally shooting Steenkamp through a locked bathroom door in his Pretoria home.

    Pistorius claimed he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder and feared for his life.

    Prosecutors say Pistorius shot the 29-year-old bikini model in a jealous rage. And next month, they intend to appeal to South Africa’s Supreme Court for a murder conviction and a tougher sentence.

    If convicted of murder by a panel of judges at that appeal, Pistorius would face a minimum of 15 years in prison.
