The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a California Appeals court has overturned the gun conviction against the illegal immigrant who killed the young American woman, Kate Steinle, in 2015. Jose Inez Garcia Zarate had already been acquitted of murder charges in 2017 related to the case after the court ruled his actions as an accident.

Zarate has been previously deported five times and was in the country illegally at the time of the incident. On Friday, the “1st District Court of Appeals…overturned a gun conviction against Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate because the judge failed to instruct the jury on one of his defenses.” . . .
Instead, it looks like justice for Steinle will go unanswered. (Read more from “California Court Overturns Gun Conviction Against Illegal Alien in Kate Steinle Murder” HERE)
