Spotlight on SCA as State to appeal Pistorius conviction
Pistorius is currently under correctional supervision after spending under a year in prison.
JOHANNESBURG - While Paralympian Oscar Pistorius has been spending the past two weeks at his uncle's home in Pretoria, the Supreme Court of Appeal will on Tuesday consider the state's application to appeal his conviction.
Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide last year after shooting and killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Prosecutors believe Pistorius should have been found guilty of murder.
Pistorius was released into correctional supervision last month, a day earlier than expected, after spending less than a year behind bars.
While the precise conditions placed on Pistorius have not been made public, his family say they are strict, and he will abide by them.
On Tuesday however, the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein will hear arguments as to whether or not his conviction should stand.
Unless the court changes his sentence, Pistorius could be under correctional supervision until 2019.
