Oscar Pistorius Trial PUSHED BACK 'Til August!

oscar pistorius postponed murder girlfriend awful trial sad represent self defense

Can you get a law degree between now and August??

For Oscar Pistorius's sake, we hope so!

Oscar represented himself in a pretrial hearing yesterday — for a whole 15 minutes — as Magistrate Daniel Thulare postponed the case ’til August so police can complete their investigation. Oscar is accused in the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

Interestingly enough, it wasn't Oscar's request for the extension — it was the prosecution. We guess they want as much time as possible to create an air-tight case against the double-amputee Olympian! Oscar only had one thing to say during Tuesday's hearing, and it was this:

"Yes, your honor."

With pretrial shizz still needing finishing, the trial itself is not expected to start before September at the earliest!

We wonder if he'll get a lawyer by that point or if he'll continue to represent himself!

    Pistorius did not represent himself - he was represented by Advocate Barry Roux, as he was during his bail application.
    There never was any intention to represent himself. He has retained the same legal counsel since the day of the shooting.
    The earliest a trial is expected to be set down is November, or early next year. When the mater returns to court in August an indictment is expected to be served on the accused, the matter will be transferred to the high court and a trial date will be set.
