Crowd Cheers As Convict Gets Unbelievable Sentencing

On Nov. 6, a judge told Joseph Anthony Hill that he'll never see the light of day again after being convicted of killing Sean O'Toole in 2013, in his Linda Vista, San Diego home.

Hill, 46, was given the maximum sentence for murder, which is 199 years to life in prison with an extra 48 years. Hill smirked while the courtroom cheered. The victim’s mother and brother were among more than a dozen of his loved ones attending the sentencing.

When O'Toole's family members addressed the courtroom, Hill could not keep from responding. O’Toole’s brother called Hill a coward, and he responded by yelling expletives and calling the victim a bully.

O’Toole’s mother said, “Sean was not perfect. He never claimed to be perfect. He made some pretty poor choices in his life, and he paid the ultimate price. But he did not deserve to be murdered.” At one point during the trial, a prosecutor said that Hill showed no remorse for his crime and Hill yelled out in agreement. Hill has a long criminal history, including six previous felonies.

In addition to murdering O’Toole, he also wounded Travis Bondurant on Dec. 29, 2013. The next day, he was involved in a shootout with officials from the U.S. Marshals Violent Crimes Task Force, who were attempting to take him into custody.

After being shot, O'Toole was dropped off at a local hospital where he later died. Hill said he shot O'Toole for allegedly "disrespecting" his girlfriend.
