Pistorius want to dedicate his life to charity

By on June 23, 2016

Oscar Pistorius, who shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp dead through a locked toilet door, told
British broadcaster ITV she would want him to dedicate his life to charity, not waste it behind bars.

The paralympic gold medalist is awaiting sentencing for her murder on July 6. Prosecutors have asked for at least the minimum 15-year jail term.

“I don’t want to go back to jail. I don’t want to have to waste my life sitting there,” Pistorius told ITV, which issued excerpts from the interview on Thursday.

He said that if he managed to avoid imprisonment, he would like to help the less fortunate.

ITV said that Steenkamp’s family had declined an interview.

The athlete was originally jailed for five years for culpable homicide, then released on parole after serving less than a year. But the conviction was later upgraded to murder on appeal.
