Oscar Pistorius Granted Bail By Judge


Cape Town: A judge at a court in South Africa on Tuesday granted bail to Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius after he was convicted of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Judge Aubrey Ledwaba said the double-amputee had proved that he is not a flight risk at a hearing in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.

Last week, the Supreme Court of Appeal found Pistorius guilty of murdering Steenkamp, overruling a previous manslaughter conviction.

Pistorius is currently under house arrest after spending a year of a five-year sentence in jail.

Steenkamp was killed on Valentine’s Day in 2013 after Pistorius shot her through a bathroom door. He says he shot her because he thought she was an intruder. Prosecutors believe he became enraged after the couple quarreled.
