The convicted murderer is now eligible for parole, after serving more than half his sentence in prison. But what could the future possibly hold for the golden-boy athlete who fell from grace so spectacularly?
Criminal lawyer Ulrich Roux told DM168 that the usual conditions for parolees would apply to Pistorius if parole is granted. These include having to check in with the Community Corrections Office regularly, potentially carrying out some form of community service, and being confined to home if not at work. It is also likely that he would be prohibited from drinking alcohol.
