"He took the life of a young, vibrant, beautiful, cherished woman by the name of Kate Steinle", she said. "There was a lot of misinformation and bad publicity".
Adachi added, "Despite the unfairly politicized atmosphere surrounding this case, jurors focused on the evidence, which was clear and convincing, and rendered a just verdict".
"Both sides fought very hard", prosecutor Alex Bastian said. This is really about the Steinle family. [The] Assistant District Attorney [-] spent much of the trial seeking to prove the gun that killed Steinle couldn't have fired without a firm pull of the trigger, while establishing that Garcia Zarate tossed the weapon into the bay before fleeing the scene - an implication of his guilt, she said.
Jurors during deliberations considered first-degree murder, second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter.
Prince William presents Santa with letter from son George
First, Prince George made sure to confirm that yes, he was good this year. "This year, I have been naughty/nice (circle one)". The adorable young prince's letter appeared to ask for just one gift this year - a toy police vehicle .
Steinle, a medical equipment saleswoman, was out for a July afternoon walk with her dad on San Francisco's Pier 14 when she was struck in the back by a single bullet.
Federal authorities announced that Zarate will be deported for a sixth time. He had been deported five times before.
The gun was stolen four days before the killing from the parked auto of a visiting Bureau of Land Management ranger.
Garcia Zarate's case triggered national controversy over San Francisco's Sanctuary City policies when it became known that he had been released from city jail several months earlier without notification to federal immigration authorities.

As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump cited the Steinle killing as a justification for his intended crackdown on immigration.
Zarate's defense lawyer, Francisco Ugarte, remarked that the death of Steinle was an "incomprehensible tragedy" but also commented that the ruling was a vindication for immigrants. "Nothing about (Garcia Zarate's) ethnicity or immigration status was relevant in this case".
Since taking office as president in January, Trump and his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, have sought to cut federal funding for sanctuary cities but have encountered setbacks in court. "Let me remind them that they're themselves under investigation by special prosecution in Washington, D.C". "San Francisco's decision to protect criminal aliens led to the preventable and heartbreaking death of Kate Steinle". Languishing in seventh behind his Republican competitors at the time, just two weeks into his campaign, Trump used Garcia Zarate's past-he had been deported from the USA five times and had seven felony convictions, including drug charges-as proof of his campaign's anti-immigrant operating thesis.
The Justice Department continues to assert that sanctuary policies risk the safety of residents in those communities, according to a statement issued in response to the ruling.
