Jose Inez Garcia Zarate, also known as Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez or simply Francisco Sanchez, is more likely known to millions as the illegal Mexican immigrant who shot and killed Kate Steinle on Pier 4 in San Francisco on July 1, 2015. Those millions will remember that Zarate had been deported five times and had returned a sixth time, that he has a rap sheet including seven felonies, and that San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” status allowed him to go free even when the sheriff knew that ICE had put a “hold” on him.
They will remember that Trump made this case a cause célèbre during his run for the presidency last year.
They will shortly learn where Zarate is going to spend the next 15 years of his life: dodging border patrol agents once again, or inside a cell in a U.S. maximum security prison. He’s charged with second degree murder which carries a sentence of 15 years to life.
The trial, which began last week, is entering its final stages.
