The Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign released the following statement:
“Words cannot express the relief and joy of everyone in the Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign that Marissa Alexander is home with her family this Thanksgiving Day.”"We are thrilled that Ms. Alexander will be able to prepare for her new trial amid the support and love of her children and family from whom she has been separated far too long.”
Marissa Alexander was convicted in 2010 after firing into the ceiling of a garage in a warning shot at her abusive husband. Prosecutors maintain Alexander fired the shot in the direction of her then-husband and kids. She invoked the Stand Your Ground law as a defense, but it was rejected. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison under Florida’s ”10-20-Life” law, which states that any crime committed with a gun includes mandatory minimum sentences. Marissa Alexander was given that sentence when she was found guilty of three counts of aggravated assault.
