Parole hearing to determine prison time for freeway shooter

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 08:23 a.m. HST, Mar 27, 2014

A man convicted of murder in a 2011 Honolulu highway shooting spree will appear via video conference before a parole board.

The board will determine how many years Toby Stangel must serve before being eligible for parole.

A judge last year sentenced Stangel to three consecutive life terms in prison.

Paroles and Pardons Administrator Tommy Johnson says Stangel is serving time in an Arizona facility. Stangel's minimum sentencing hearing is scheduled for Thursday afternoon in Honolulu.

Johnson says the board will publish its decision in approximately two weeks.

Stangel was convicted of the murder of Tammy Nguyen. The mother of 10 was shot in her minivan as her 16-year-old daughter watched. He then shot and injured two motorists on the H-1 Freeway, kept driving and shot at two police officers.

So, everyone should get more than one chance to kill again? Is that how this works? That's how justice protects law abiding citizens?

I read a story once that said the majority of people sentenced to life with parole do in fact get out. Something like 70%, the rest die in prison for a variety of reasons. This is not a Hawaii thing it was a nation-wide thing and its been that way for a while. I think there is a erception in the public that life in prison means life in prison, but in reality unless the convict gets life without parole, he/she will eventually get out.

Isn't consecutive life terms mean he should be rot in jail? Jail is too good for this scum. He is an example why Hawaii needs a death penalty.

He was sentenced to three life terms in prison. Okay, let's be generous and make him serve ONLY ONE LIFE TERM before being eligible for parole.

This just means when will he get the first parole hearing. That doesn't mean he will get parole. For example, Charles Manson has parole hearings too, but gets denied everytime. Manson is not getting paroled... He just has to be given the hearing.
