Oscar pistorius dating russian model brian holden meredith stepien dating

The shamed athlete filed applications in eight international trademark categories – which include endorsements for sportswear, mental health services and prosthetic limbs – following his conviction for killing Reeva Steenkamp.

According to legal observers, Pistorius could spend only ten months in jail and, provided he poses no trouble to the prison authorities, could spend the remainder of his sentence under correctional supervision at home.

After a summary of the evidence in the case and related legal issues, judge Thozile Masipa said: 'Having regard to the circumstances of the matter, I am of the view that a non-custodial sentence would send the wrong message to the community.

The double amputee had been space in the hospital wing following an assessment which concluded Pistorius was 'vulnerable'.

Two nurses observe the wing around the clock, which is also heavily guarded by prison officers, Mr Monama said.

Any prisoner who could claim to have harmed the 'Blade Runner’ while in transit would undoubtedly win welcome notoriety within the prison gang culture which rewards acts of violence.
