The undocumented immigrant acquitted of murder in the shooting death of Kathryn Steinle has been sentenced to time served for a gun charge, The Associated Press reported Friday.
Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a native of Mexico, was sentenced on Friday to serve the remainder of his sentence for illegal gun possession in federal custody, and a judge denied his attorneys’ request for a new trial. It was unclear how much time Zarate has remaining on his sentence.
Zarate was acquitted in November for the killing of Steinle, a San Francisco woman who was fatally shot on a pier in 2015. Steinle’s slaying was widely politicized, as Zarate was released from a San Francisco jail before her death despite a federal request that he be kept there until his sixth deportation.
