In a significant development, Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, has pleaded guilty to two counts of illegal gun possession in relation to the tragic shooting of Kate Steinle in 2015, Your Content has learned.

The incident occurred on a San Francisco pier while Kate was strolling with her father and a family friend. After being acquitted of murder charges in 2017, Garcia-Zarate now faces a potential 10-year prison sentence for possessing the firearm used in the shooting.

The case drew national attention and sparked widespread outrage. Garcia-Zarate had a history of being deported multiple times before the shooting, which intensified the debate on immigration policies and sanctuary cities.

These cities have been known to limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
