Alternate juror supports murder acquittal in pier shooting

Alternate juror supports murder acquittal in pier shooting

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.

The undocumented immigrant acquitted last week in the shooting death of a San Francisco woman is now facing federal charges.

He said acquitting Garcia Zarate of involuntary manslaughter was a closer call. The evidence didn't show that Garcia Zarate meant to kill anyone'.

In the piece, Van Stockum agrees with the defense's opnion that murder charges should not have been brought against Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a Mexican man in the United States illegally.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon on Tuesday defended his office's handling of the case.

His public defender Matt Gonzalez said Garcia Zarate will ask a judge to toss out the state conviction.

Clair College Takes A Hit As More Students Dropout
Clair officials were happy at the start of the year, thanks to a record enrollment in the fall semester of 10,000 students. The college says 73 per cent of the 964 students who took up the province's offer are in their first semester.

The presumption of innocence, as stated in the jury instructions, according to Van Stockum, required the jury to select an interpretation of the facts that favors the defendant: that Garcia Zarate found the gun, picked it up out of curiosity, it accidentally fired, and he then dumped it in the water because he was wanted by immigration authorities.

President Donald Trump frequently brought up the case a year ago during his presidential campaign to criticize efforts in the U.S.to combat illegal immigration.

Rather than turn him over to federal immigration officials.

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

After Zarate's acquittal, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement also announced last week that they planned to take Zarate into custody and remove him from the U.S. after the case was completely over.
