Oscar Pistorius will be committed to the hospital wing of one of South Africa's toughest prisons if the double-amputee Olympic track star is sentenced to jail time for killing his girlfriend, the head of the prison service said Thursday.On the fourth day of Pistorius' sentencing hearing, Zach Modise, who has worked in the prison service for 35 years, was questioned by the defense about conditions at the Pretoria Central Prison, Pistorius' most likely destination because of its disabled facilities.However, Modise said the reality of the prison was a long way from the popular perception and said Pistorius' disability – his lower legs were amputated as a baby – would ensure he was kept in a separate wing.
