26 Oct, 2014

Pistorius’s legal bills are reported to total 17 million South African rand, or about $1.6 million. A source says around $915,000 is still owing, raising questions over who will defend him if the prosecution appeals. Pistorius is said to have sold his $450,000 house to pay the costs. His legal team, which included two senior barristers and three additional lawyers attending the court, is rumored to have cost as much as $8,700 a day, and hired experts to help defend the case including an American forensic animation company called The Evidence Room.
