Pistorius back in court for sentencing hearing

first_img#OscarPistorius during break OP, still looking like he’s hardly slept, shares a moment with uncle and brother. Photo via @johnrayitv Oscar Pistorius returned to court Tuesday a day after being described as a “broken” man who should be hospitalised rather than jailed, as he attended sentencing for the murder of his girlfriend three years ago.The double-amputee killed Reeva Steenkamp, a model and law graduate, in the early hours of Valentine’s Day in 2013, saying he mistook her for an intruder when he fired four times through the door of his bedroom toilet.Pistorius tried to greet Steenkamp’s relatives as he entered the court on Tuesday but they did not respond.On Monday, the 29-year-old “Blade Runner” was red-eyed and tearful on the first day of his sentencing hearing at the High Court in Pretoria.“He has developed a serious psychiatric condition which has become worse in the past two years,” psychologist Jonathan Scholtz, called by the defence, told the court on Monday. Pistorius has shunned the media during years of intense coverage since Steenkamp’s killing, but his family have revealed that he has given his first interview, due to air on British broadcaster ITV later this month.The interview drew a sharp attack on Monday from state prosecutor Gerrie Nel, who said it proved that Pistorius was capable of testifying.“He would rather give his version to the TV than to court,” said Nel, who accused psychologist Scholtz of being biased.Pistorius was released from jail last October to live under house arrest at his uncle’s mansion in Pretoria after serving one year of his five-year sentence for culpable homicide.Since being convicted of murder, Pistorius has been on bail and allowed to leave his uncle’s house at set times, but not travel further than 20 kilometres (12 miles) without permission.The hearing — held in the same courtroom as the original trial — is scheduled to last one week.Pistorius has always denied killing Steenkamp in a rage and, during his dramatic seven-month trial in 2014, sobbed in the dock as details of his lover’s death were examined in excruciating detail.The year before he killed Steenkamp, Pistorius became the first double-amputee to race at Olympic level when he appeared at the London 2012 games.Share on: WhatsApp Steenkamp’s parents were both in court, and her father Barry may take the witness stand to ask the court to impose a lengthy punishment.If he does, it will be the first time that one of Steenkamp’s parents has testified in the case. “Further imprisonment would have a detrimental effect on him.”Scholtz said that during recent interviews Pistorius had displayed signs of “post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorder and depressive disorder”.In March, Pistorius’s lawyers failed in their legal bid to reverse a Supreme Court of Appeal judgement that upgraded his original conviction from culpable homicide — the equivalent of manslaughter — to murder.The original trial judge Thokozile Masipa is expected to pass a new sentence after hearing arguments from both prosecution and defence.Pistorius faces a minimum 15-year jail term for murder, but his sentence could be reduced due to time already spent in prison and mitigating factors, including his disability.last_img read more

Ward comes back to honor ‘Positive Athletes’

first_imgby Malik VincentFor New Pittsburgh Courier In his first public appearance in Pittsburgh since his retirement, former Steeler Hines Ward stood in front of 26 student athletes that were honored from around the area and their families at the Heinz History Center. Ward established a partnership with Positive Athlete, a national organization based in Atlanta, to help recognize the accomplishment of those in the Greater Pittsburgh area.“I started this positive athletes program, just to inspire kids,” Ward said. “I like to encourage (youth) on taking on a new role of joining positive sportsmanship, hanging around positive people, and trying not hang around with negative people all the time. Really, just for them to be encouraging to others and to be a leader in the community.”A third round draft pick of the Steelers in 1997, Ward has served as an international model of what can be deemed a “positive athlete.” Known as one of the toughest wide receivers in NFL history, Ward is also noted for keeping a smile through the game’s toughest moments.“Hines is one of our lead guys for, not only what this program does in the city of Pittsburgh, but all over the country,” Positive Athlete Executive Director Scott Pederson said.More than 170 nominations from coaches, principals, athletic directors, teachers, and parents representing 75 different Western Pa. high schools, some as far away as Erie, Pa., were submitted through the Positive Athlete and MSA Sports websites.The event was emceed by KDKA sports anchor Bob Pompeani, with assistance from MSA Sports broadcasters Lanny Frattare and Don Rebel, and featured a special appearance by Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jeff Karstens.Three youth from the Pittsburgh inner-city were honored at the April 21 event.Ben Swaby is a senior baseball star from Allderdice. He’s developed a reputation for being an ‘all-around’ athlete, with his 3.8 GPA and is known for always being positive.“I was initially surprised when I first won this award,” Swaby said. “When my coach first told me, I felt really fortunate and I’ve been looking forward to ever since.”He is torn between attending either the University of Maryland and Allegheny College to play baseball and major in pre-medicine.Christian Joiner, a senior at Central Catholic, is a multi-sport performer in basketball and track and field. His relaxed demeanor has helped his basketball team compete for a WPIAL championship and in the PIAA playoffs. In track, he participates as a long and triple jumper for the Vikings.“I’m in a positive, upbeat environment at my school,” Joiner said. “That’s one of the key things for me to have had on the way to this honor.”He is hoping to attend the University of Akron or Duquesne University in the fall.Brittany Jackson is a sophomore basketball player from Westinghouse. She was a guard on the city’s runner-up that competed with Allderdice all the way to the wire in the Feb. 25 championship game.“Usually, kids from the inner-city are automatically kind of put behind the eight-ball,” Ward said. “They get a misconception that they come from a bad environment and that they’re bad people. You have so many great people that live within the inner-city school district borders. I just think that sometimes it’s a little harder for them (because of) that negative connotation that they’re bad people because of where they come from.”“Hines told me when we selected him for this, that the kind of athletes he was looking for (to be honored) was the kind that would keep smiling after anything, both good and bad,” Pederson said. “I think that’s what we were able to do.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected] or on Twitter @malikvincent.)

Utd help Solskjaer bring in six players -Giggs

first_img0Shares0000Utd should help Solskjaer bring in six players. Photo/TEAMTALK MEDIALONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 29 – Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs believes the club will need to add another “five or six players” to the first team squad in order to compete with the best.A 3-1 victory over Norwich City saw United leap up the table to seventh after a disappointing start to the season that has seen Solskjaer come under pressure. A draw against leaders Liverpool last weekend as well as back-to-back away wins over Partizan Belgrade and the Canaries has seen that pressure ease slightly.The Red Devils brought in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James and Harry Maguire during the summer transfer window and Giggs has urged the club to bring in more.“We need to bring quality in,” Giggs told the United Stand.“Ole has brought three in who are all doing well. His dealings have been very good so far. Give him the money other managers have had to get Manchester United players.“Get another five or six players like that in, we will see a real difference. They are missing that creative player.“It is no coincidence, the best performances have been against good teams. The lesser teams are always harder to break down.“We are probably just a bit shy of them creative players and I think Ole recognises that.”0Shares0000(Visited 43 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bluebird jet boat floats again 51 years after fatal crash

first_imgLONDON – The famed jet boat Bluebird returned to the water Saturday for the first time since a 1967 crash that killed pilot Donald Campbell during a world speed-record attempt.Watched by well-wishers including Campbell’s daughter Gina Campbell, the sleek blue hydroplane was lowered into Loch Fad on Scotland’s Isle of Bute, where it will undergo low-speed tests.Campbell had already set eight land and water speed records when he attempted to break his own 276.3 mph (445 kph) water-speed record on Jan. 4, 1967 on Coniston Water in northwest England’s Lake District.The jet-powered Bluebird roared past 300 mph (482 kph) before it vaulted into the air, flipped and crashed into the lake, breaking in two and killing the 45-year-old Campbell.It was 34 years before divers managed to raise the Bluebird’s wreckage from the bottom of 150-foot (45-meter) deep lake in March 2001.Human remains were found near the boat and confirmed by DNA testing as belonging to Campbell. In September 2001, his body was taken on a final boat trip around the lake where he died before being buried in a nearby churchyard.A team has been working for 17 years to restore the vessel and hopes to return it to the Lake District next year.The plans to rebuild the Bluebird faced some opposition, but gained support from Gina Campbell, who was 17 when her father died. On Saturday, she held her father’s mascot — a stuffed bear named Mr. Whoppit that was recovered from Coniston Water after the crash.She said she was “overwhelmed” by the occasion.“I hope my dad’s looking down from above and telling everybody what a good job was done,” she told the BBC.last_img read more
