WATCH Oscar Pistorius Granted Bail, Sentencing Postponed Until April

A South African judge released Oscar Pistorius today on bail of about $700 ahead of his sentencing in the 2013 slaying of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

The former Olympian has been under house arrest at his uncle's house in Pretoria since his release from prison in October, having served one year of his five-year sentence for culpable homicide.

The court today ordered Pistorius, 29, to return to the High Court April 18, 2016, for sentencing on the murder conviction. He was originally convicted of culpable homicide but that verdict was overturned earlier this month when an appeals court ruled that he should have been found guilty of murder, instead.

His legal team plans to appeal the murder conviction, which carried a minimum 15-year prison sentence, according to The Associated Press.

Court documents show the bail conditions to which he must adhere include being electronically tagged and only being able to leave the house between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. every day. Outside those hours, he would need permission from the investigating officer.

Restrictions on his travel have also been imposed by the judge, as agreed with both prosecution and defense lawyers. Pistorius may not travel more than 12 miles radius from the house. He must also not apply for travel documents.
