Oscar Pistorius Released Into House Arrest

Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympic runner who shot his girlfriend to death on Valentine’s Day 2013, will be leaving prison Tuesday and moving to house arrest, though the exact timing is unknown at this point. A parole board at the prison where Pistorius has served nearly a year of his five-year sentence for manslaughter made the decision.

But, Pistorius’ relative freedom might be short-lived. While “Bladerunner” was acquitted of murder last year for the shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp, prosecutors have appealed that trial verdict and will seek a murder conviction again at South Africa’s Supreme Court on November 3rd.
