Oscar Pistorius to be released after one year in Prison

Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympic runner who shot his girlfriend to death on Valentine?s Day 2013, can leave prison and move to house arrest next week, South Africa?s Department of Corrections said Thursday.

A parole board at the prison where Pistorius has served nearly a year of his five-year sentence for manslaughter made the decision. It came after an initial ruling to release the athlete in August was canceled at the last minute after intervention by the justice minister.

This time, the board ?approved the placement of offender Oscar Pistorius under correctional supervision as from 20 October 2015,? the corrections department said in a statement following the meeting of the parole board earlier Thursday.


Pistorius was acquitted of murder last year for the shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp, but prosecutors have appealed that trial verdict and will seek a murder conviction again at South Africa?s Supreme Court on Nov. 3.
