Six-time Paralympic champion, Oscar Pistorius, will reportedly leave prison in three months’ time after initially being handed a five-year sentence for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
The South African, who is currently being held in the Kgosi Mumpuru Prison in Pretoria, was convicted of culpable homicide (manslaughter) after shooting dead his model partner.
Pistorius fired four gunshots through a toilet door in his home in the early hours of Valentine’s Day two years ago.
According to the Sunday People, the double amputee intends to work with disadvantaged children when he is released from prison in August on strict parole.
Pistorius’s solicitor, Barry Roux, told the newspaper: “[Oscar] walks free in August and then has 10 months on parole. The parole conditions will be at their discretion, don’t drink, go to church, no drugs, he’ll have a psychological programme, an anger management course.
“They will set the parameters and he will keep to them. He will leave prison in three months’ time and wherever he goes he will be Oscar Pistorius.”
At London 2012, Pistorius became the first amputee runner to compete at an Olympic Games.
