Marissa Alexander Case Comes To A Close
(Hat tip to Mindyme, our reporter on the ground in Florida)
In 2012, Marissa was convicted of three counts of aggravated assault. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Last year around this time, Marissa Alexander was released on bond and was home for Thanksgiving. Her conviction was overturned on appeal because of an error in jury instructions. Her new trial was scheduled to begin on December 1, 2014.
Since that time, Marissa’s lawyer has zealously fought for her. The Appellate Court ordered a new trial. She petitioned the court for, and was denied, another stand your ground immunity hearing.
