The father of a woman killed in the San Bernardino terror attack says he’s afraid the man who pleaded guilty to providing weapons to the shooters will get a “slap on the wrist” as part of a deal with prosecutors.
Gregory Clayborn, whose daughter Sierra was among 14 killed, opposed the deal in remarks to the judge before the hearing and again to reporters afterward.
Clayborn said he believes Marquez knew about the December 2015 attack ahead of time.
United States Attorney Eileen Decker says there was no evidence that Marquez was aware that husband-and-wife assailants Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik were planning the shootings.
The plea agreement between 25-year-old Enrique Marquez Jr. and prosecutors was accepted Thursday by a federal judge in Riverside, California.
Husband-and-wife assailants Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik were killed in a gunfight with authorities later that day.
