Oscar Pistorious Freed From Prison; To Serve 5-Year-Sentence Under House Arrest At Uncle’s Villa


Oscar Pistorius leaves prison early after he was jailed for killing Reeva Steenkamp

The Paralympian star’s lawyers successfully argued that he should be released on house arrest after serving a year of his five-year jail sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. Pistorius was initially due to be freed in August, but intervention by the minister of justice led to a series of delays before a parole board decision last Thursday. However, he still faces an appeal in the Supreme Court next month, which if successful, will upgrade his charge to murder and see him re-jailed for a minimum of 15 years.
