Oscar Pistorius Eligible for New Parole Hearing

Oscar Pistorius, the former Olympic runner, will have a second chance at parole after a previous ineligibility ruling mistake.

South Africa's department of corrections announced a parole board hearing on November 24, 2023, to reconsider Oscar Pistorius's case for potential early release. Initially convicted of culpable homicide for the 2013 shooting of Reeva Steenkamp, his conviction was later upgraded to murder with a sentence of 13 years and five months.
