Amare Gebru tried to convince a regular customer to kill the woman, but this customer told her of the plan, leading to Amare’s arrest.

Amare’s lawyer Mike Cook had argued for a sentence of five months and 29 days because any longer sentence would trigger deportation proceedings. In making this argument, Cook said Gebru is “a good man who did a bad thing.”
