    Oscar Pistorius - Discussion Thread #67 *Appeal Verdict*

    Pistorius could return to jail with appeal ruling this week

    Sports | Tue Dec 1, 2015 12:47pm EST

    South Africa's Oscar Pistorius will find out if he will return to jail when the Supreme Court of Appeal announces on Thursday if it will scale up the track star's conviction for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp from manslaughter to murder.

    The Paralympic gold medallist was released on parole in October after serving a fifth of his five-year prison term for the "culpable homicide" of Steenkamp, whom he killed by firing four shots through a locked toilet door on Valentine's Day 2013.

    Prosecutors said Pistorius, 29, should be convicted of murder and sent back to jail because he knew the person behind the door could be killed when he fired. A murder conviction would result in a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison.

    "The judgment will be delivered at 09:45 (0745 GMT) on 3 December 2015 at the Supreme Court of Appeal," the court said in a statement on Tuesday.

    Mfaku said NPA regarded #OscarPistorius house arrest as a form of detention, wouldn't ask that he be jailed pending sentence - if state won

    Court can however make its own order on #OscarPistorius detention - require he hand himself over to prison authorities within specific time

    Defense expected to send Bloemfontein attorney to observe #OscarPistorius appeal. Barry Roux won't be here. Neither will Gerrie Nel @eNCA

    #OscarPistorius Case could theoretically still go to the Constitutional Court. All of this would take more time.

    Mandy Wiener ‏@MandyWiener · 4m4 minutes ago
    #OscarPistorius Fact that Leach is reading judgment being seen as a big negative for OP. Made his position very clear during argument.

    What’s at stake in the Supreme Court of Appeal judgement in the Pistorius appeal.

    A spokesman for the athlete warned the media that it would be futile to gather outside the Pistoriuses' Centurion, Pretoria, home.
    "To save all of you the trouble of camping out at the Pistorius home tomorrow (today), I thought it best to let you know in advance that there will not be an on-camera statement made tomorrow.

    #OscarPistorius Justice Leach will read a summary of the judgment. Anywhere from 2 to 15 pages, depending on who you ask.

    Morning all,

    yes Giles, it's odd I feel almost an anti-climax already as it has seemed like a foregone conclusion BUT should prepare myself in case of a disappointing surprise really!
