BREAKING NEWS: Marissa Alexander Bonds Out Of Jail. THATS A Great Thanksgiving Moment.

Marissa Alexander bonds out of jail

 

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — The Jacksonville mother convicted of shooting at her estranged husband has bonded out of jail.

 

Marissa Alexander was released just before midnight Wednesday. She is now under house arrest.

 

Alexander is awaiting a new trial for firing two shots near her estranged husband.

 

A judge ruled in September that Alexander would receive a new trial due to bad jury instructions given in her first trial.

 

Alexander and her attorneys say she fired the gun as a “warning shot.”

 

 

Statement from State Attorney‘s Office

 

“The State Attorney’s Office made all statements regarding its position on bond in its written response dated November 13, 2013. The SAO will continue to seek justice for our two child victims and their father who were endangered by the shot the defendant fired at them. Any further comments regarding the prosecution of this defendant will be made in the proper venue – the courtroom.”

Marissa Alexander Released On Bail

 

 

 

Florida Woman Marissa Alexander Sentenced To 20 Years For Firing Warning Shot Seeks Bail

 

 

Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville, Florida was convicted of aggravated assault in March 2012. She has now been granted a new trial in September after her conviction was thrown out by an appeals court judge who said the trial jury was given incorrect instructions on self-defense.

 

A new trial for the 31-year-old mother of three will begin next April.

 

Alexander’s conviction sparked criticism of racial double standards in Florida’s justice system as it was compared to George Zimmerman‘s exoneration.

 

The Jacksonville woman, who is black, argued self-defense under the “Stand Your Ground” law, which gives the benefit of the doubt to a shooter who feels threatened. In her case no one was injured and she was still convicted.

 

More than a year later George Zimmerman, who is half Latino and half white, used the same defense. In his case a black teenager was killed and he was not convicted.

 

Alexander hopes she will be released from jail after her bond hearing on Wednesday. As she awaits the new trial, her team of prosecutors say they will be prepared.

 

“The facts are facts,” Assistant State Attorney David Thompson said. “Facts don’t change. So we’re going to put the same facts to the law and give the proper jury instruction this time.”
