Federal Grand Jury Indicts Illegal Alien Acquitted of Kate Steinle Murder

Jose Ines Garcia Zarate acquitted last week of killing Kate Steinle in San Francisco now faces federal gun and immigration charges

Garcia-Zarate is a seven-time convicted felon and had been deported from the USA five times.

Zarate, formerly identified by one of his aliases, Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, made a jailhouse confession to local ABC news affiliate that he fired the shot that killed Steinle on San Francisco's pier 14 while walking with her father on July 1, 2015.

Phil Van Stockum said in an interview Wednesday that there was no evidence Jose Ines Garcia Zarate planned or meant to kill Kate Steinle on July 1, 2015. Shortly before, Zarate had been released from jail where he was being held on drug charges, despite federal immigration authorities' desire to detain him.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a grand jury's indictment of Jose Inez Garcia Zarate on Tuesday for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and for doing so as an illegal alien. Now, he is facing federal firearm charges that carry a maximum penalty of ten years in prison.

Legal experts have said prosecutors overreached by asking for a first-degree murder conviction because the fatal shot ricocheted off the ground, supporting Garcia Zarate's defense that the shooting was an accident. Garcia Zarate is to be sentenced in state court December 14. He said he still believed Garcia Zarate should have been convicted of Steinle's murder.

Ronda Rousey's Appears Headed to the WWE
Rousey appeared at WrestleMania 31 and was spotted in the crowd during WWE's Mae Young Classic tournament. According to two sources speaking with USA Today , Rousey is finalizing details of her move to WWE .

Garcia Zarate said he didn't know he had a gun in his hands until it fired.

President Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from cities with similar policies.

Rather than turn him over to federal immigration officials.

And he is convinced that based on all of the available information presented during the trial, the jurors did not botch the case, as President Donald Trump has suggested in an angry tweet slamming the verdict as a 'miscarriage of justice'.
