Honolulu highway shooter to be sentenced

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 05:25 a.m. HST, Aug 14, 2013

A Wahiawa man convicted in the highway shooting death of a mother of 10 is expected to learn his sentence.

Toby Stangel is scheduled to be sentenced today.

A jury found him guilty of second-degree murder in May. Jurors also found him guilty of second-degree attempted murder for shooting and injuring a woman on the H-1 freeway and for shooting at a man at the start of the early morning 2011 rampage. He was found guilty of reckless endangering for firing at two police officers and a man shot in the thigh on the freeway.

The jury couldn't agree on whether he deserved an extended term of life in prison without parole.

Prosecutors are expected to ask for consecutive life sentences.

The judge will make the final decision.

That's way too much. I propose a 99 year sentence and one year off for being ugly.

Judge wasn't bleeding heart mental Perkins by any chance was it? Otherwise Stangel will get time served and another month in jail and then be placed on probabtion for 5 years.

Or even worse than Perkins, Judge Michael Towne. Yikes! The best thing to even happen to Hawaii was the forced retirement of Towne at age 70 thanks to the provision in the state constitution.

If anyone is interested, the judge in this case is the Hon. Glenn Kim. According to the state judiciary's website: "Kim was sworn in as a Circuit Court judge on May 1, 2007. He was a deputy prosecuting attorney with the Honolulu Prosecutor's Office from 1993 till his appointment to the bench in 2007. While at the Prosecutor's Office, he was primarily a felony trials attorney, also serving as the head of both the domestic violence felony and misdemeanor units. Prior to his work at the Prosecutor's Office, Judge Kim served as a law clerk for Ronald T.Y. Moon, Chief Justice of the Hawai`i Supreme Court from 1992 to 1993. He also worked as a law clerk in the Office of the Public Defender, and as a legal extern for Judge Alan Kay at the federal district court."
