Prosecutor Gerrie Nel criticised Dr Hartzenberg’s findings, saying Pistorius
would likely still have the chance to rebuild his life and possibly continue
his career.

Meanwhile, Joel Maringa, a social worker in South Africa’s correctional
services, suggested that Pistorius be placed under correctional supervision,
which would include periods of house arrest, for three years and that he
perform 16 hours of community service a month during that time.

Such correctional supervision would allow Pistorius to train and attend
athletics meetings again, Maringa said.

Nel said such a sentence would be “shockingly inappropriate” and
described it as “no sentence.”
