Oscar Pistorius

Call for community service

13 Oct, 2014

Defence witness Joel Maringa, a social worker in South African prisons, says Pistorius should clean a museum in Pretoria for 16 hours a month as part of correctional supervision in place of a jail term. Maringa:

We are basically saying that Oscar Pistorius should not be destroyed … he will get an opportunity to restructure and modify his behaviour

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel responds that Maringa does not understand the seriousness of the charge, after gaining an admission that he does not have an in-depth knowledge of the case.
