    The lawyer for the undocumented immigrant who was found not
    guilty in November 2017 for the 2015 fatal shooting of a woman
    on the San Francisco pier-- but convicted for illegally
    possessing a weapon-- has appealed the conviction, arguing that
    he had fired the gun by accident and "momentary possession" of a
    gun is not a crime.

    Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 46, a previous felon and undocumented
    immigrant who served nearly two years for felony re-entry into
    the U.S. from Mexico, was sentenced to three years in prison for
    the gun conviction while he awaits deportation.

    In July 2015, Kate Steinle, 32, was walking on San Francisco
    pier with her father when a bullet ricocheted off the pier’s
    concrete floor and fatally struck her in the back. Garcia Zarate
    was reportedly holding the gun after it "unexpectedly" went off
    and threw it in the bay, prosecutors said.

    Garcia Zarate was acquitted of murder, manslaughter and assault
    charges, but convicted of illegally possessing a firearm. The
    case sparked a national fervor about illegal immigration run
    amok, with President Donald Trump calling the verdict “a
    complete travesty of justice.”

    The Kate Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly
    protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being
    violent, and yet this info was not used in court. His
    exoneration is a complete travesty of justice. BUILD THE WALL!

    The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Garcia Zarate’s
    lawyer, Cliff Gardner, filed a motion on Friday with the First
    District Court of Appeal in San Francisco, asking the court to
    overturn his client’s conviction and order a new trial because
    Superior Court Judge Samuel Feng did not instruct the jury that
    “momentary possession” of a gun is not a crime, and the jury had
    no choice but to convict Garcia Zarate.
