PISTORIUS FACING ANOTHER LEGAL CHALLENGE
Oscar Pistorius spent Tuesday at his uncle’s mansion after being moved from jail to house arrest, but the former track star faces another legal challenge next month when prosecutors argue at an appeals court that he should go back to prison for a much longer period for killing his girlfriend. Pistorius, a double-amputee who ran against able-bodied athletes in the 2012 London Olympics, does not have to attend the Nov. 3 hearing. Pistorius, who was acquitted of murder but convicted of the lesser charge of culpable homicide, or manslaughter, had spent a year of his five-year sentence in a Pretoria prison. If the appeals court rejects the manslaughter conviction and in- stead rules that Pistorius is guilty of murder, he faces going back to prison for 15 years.
