& # 39; I feel humiliated for my brother & # 39 ;: sister of a man killed in a pathogenic, unprovoked attack in broad daylight after learning that his killer could roam freely within three years
- Christine Jennings sobbed at the hearing of her brother's murderer
- Peter Lindsay Hill jailed for eight and a half years for killing Mrs. Jenning & # 39; s brother
- With time served, Hill could be back on the street within three years
The sister of a man who was killed in a nauseating daylight attack on a street in Sydney, sobbed outside in court after learning that her brother's killer could walk around in just three years.
Peter Lindsay Hill was imprisoned on Friday for eighteen years for hitting and kicking John Patrick Hill as he walked along a footpath near Sydney & Oxford Street.
But the murderer could be back on the street within three years, after he had received a minimum of five and a half years, including the time he had already done.

Out of court on Friday, Christine Jennings spoke to her tears as she described the sentence handed down to her brother's murderer, 9News reported.
& # 39; It's just wrong, totally wrong – it's not good enough & # 39 ;, Jennings said, wiping tears from her eyes.
& # 39; To hear what's going on inside, I feel humiliated for my brother, I'm just ashamed that it's no better for him. & # 39;
Jenning's brother was walking near his house when he was randomly attacked by his killer on Crown Street, Darlinghurst just after 10 am on November 3, 2016.
The 37-year-old murderer, who had never met his victim, shouted at Mr. Hill before slapping him in the head and kicking him in the trunk.
Hill fell back and hit his skull on the sidewalk, killing him in the hospital five days later.
NSW Supreme Court Justice Mark Ierace imprisoned Hill for eight years on Friday, with a minimum duration of five and a half years, for the & # 39; unprovoked, violent attack & # 39 ;.
Hill pleaded guilty of manslaughter on the grounds that at the time of the attack he had a significant limitation due to abnormality of mind, namely schizophrenia.

Justice Ierace said Hill had a history of non-compliance with medical advice and recorded several reports for the attack where Hill expressed the conviction that the general public was conspiring against him.
"It is clear that the perpetrator will need significant support from government agencies when he is eventually released into the community," he said.
Justice Ierace described how & # 39; missed opportunities & # 39; were to diagnose and properly treat the murderer's mental illness, 9News reported.
& # 39; We must do something to change the law, the law is wrong – it is suitable for the bad guy, & # 39; said Jennings.
Over time, Hill will be eligible for parool in May 2022.
