Philippines deports US Marine pardoned in 2014 transgender killing | Marine Corps Times

Lance Cpl. Joseph Scott Pemberton, a former US Marine, killed a woman in 2014 at a motel after learning that she is transgender. Pemberton is now being deported back to the United States. In a statement he reveals he is sorry for murdering the women and expresses gratitude towards the Philippines for releasing him. The U.S. Embassy stated that Pemberton will not be serving any time in any US prison because he has fulfilled his sentencing in the Philippines and “all legal proceedings in the case took place under Philippine jurisdiction and law. “
