Marissa Alexander Remains On Bond with Tightened Conditions

Marissa Alexander will remain free on bail under tightened conditions, Circuit Judge James Daniel ruled on Friday, due to the fact “mistakes were made.”

State Attorney Angela Corey sought to have Alexander’s bail revoked because she ran errands, such as going to the bank, transporting relatives and going to store to purchase clothes.

Marissa Alexander argued that she had sought and received permission for each of the trips she took from the Sheriff’s Office CPC counselor assigned to monitor her compliance with the terms of release. 

CPC counselor April Wilson testified that she did approve each of Alexander’s trips and did so in the belief that she was following the court’s order specifying the terms of release. Her defense successfully argued that she reasonably relied on the permission of Wilson in believing she remained in compliance with her bond conditions.
