Attorneys for the killer illegal alien acquitted of murder and manslaughter in the death of Kate Steinle filed a motion Thursday seeking a new trial on the single conviction jurors returned for illegal gun possession.

Matt Gonzalez, an attorney for Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, is seeking a new trial for his client in San Francisco Superior Court after jurors found him guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm Nov. 30. Gonzalez claims the judge who presided over the trial improperly instructed jurors on the charge.

Whether the conviction stands could have an impact on the federal case against Garcia Zarate for the shooting at Pier 14 on July 1, 2015. The U.S. Attorney’s Office charged Garcia Zarate with being a felon in possession of a firearm and being an undocumented immigrant in possession of a firearm on Dec. 5.

Federal prosecutors filed the charges following outcry from President Donald Trump, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and conservative media over the verdict.
