Prosecutors Seek To Put Marissa Alexander Back In Jail For Violations Of Her Release

Source: Larry Hannan / The Florida Times-Union

Marissa Alexander got out on bond in November after spending 21 months in jail for firing a shot in the direction of her estranged husband and his two children.

Alexander, 33, may soon be back behind bars, less than two months after she got out. Prosecutors say she violated the terms of her bond, while attorneys for Alexander said everything she did was approved by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

According to the office of State Attorney Angela Corey, Alexander violated the conditions of her bond within days of being released. She went out shopping for clothes, drove family members to the hair shop and airport, got a new driver’s license and visited the bank.

Prosecutors said Alexander did all of this while she was on home detention, which prohibited her from leaving her residence except for court appearances, medical emergencies and to satisfy any requirements of her pretrial services program, like a drug test.

    This is crazy and they need to leave this poor lady alone. George Zimmerman has done crazy things and they allow him to roam free. This poor lady was trying to protect herself and this is insane.

  • Randall Lind

    This woman didn’t kill anyone and they want her in jail for life for defending herself. I think state of Florida is being racist here and is mad that a judge let her out on bond.

    This criminalized “justice system” is against all black males and females but wait ’till the Chinese, the Germans, Koreans, Japanese etc…. own and possess the biggest share of the America job market and political system- then they will see who was really on their side

    The system in Florida stinks. They are harassing this women, simply because she made enough noise in bringing attention to the flawed system of law in Florida and throughout the country.

    Maybe these Florida Prosecutors in this case need to be investigated for violation of lack of common sense. These people in the Florida Judicial System, REALLY WANTS THIS WOMEN IN PRISON, YET THAT SUPER CRIMINAL GEORGE ZIMMERMAN SEEMS TO HAVE BECOME THE LOVE OF THE PROSECUTORS AND FLORIDA’S MAN OF THE CENTURY! What is it about this BLACK WOMEN THAT THEY HAVE SO MUCH HATE FOR HER???? INITIALLY BY FLORIDA’S F’ ED UP LAWS, SHE SOMEHOW DID SUCH AN INJUSTICE BY SHOOTING IN THE AIR TO DEFEND HERSELF FROM “A MAN KNOWN BY THE PROSECUTORS TO BE ABUSIVE TO HER” AND BY TRYING TO PROTECT HERSELF FROM BEING ABUSE AGAIN RIGHT AFTER SHE HAD JUST GIVEN BIRTH, THAT THIS WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO BE SENT TO JAIL FOR. THIS STUCK ON STUPID STATE PROTECTS THE ABUSERS (SOUNDS LIKE ZIMMERMAN CASE) AND SHE GOES TO JAIL (LIKE TRAYVON GOT KILLED). SHE GETS OUT AND THEY WANT HER BACK IN JAIL FOR THOSE REAL CRIMES OF SHOPPING AND DRIVING, OH WOW!!! I guess the tax payers ought to be happy to know that they would be paying to keep this murdering, rapist, robber, abuser locked up on their dime, OH WAIT, I FORGOT SHE IS NONE OF THESE THINGS. SHE WAS STANDING HER GROUND, BUT SHE JUST DIDN’T REALIZE THAT BECAUSE HER NAME WASN’T ZIMMERMAN SHE COULD “NOT KILL ANYONE”, YET STILL BE SENT TO JAIL! MAYBE SHE NEED TO LEARN FROM GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, KILL THE OTHER PERSON AND THEY CAN’T TESTIFY AGAINST YOU SO YOU GET TO WALK!! HOW A$$ BACKWARDS IS OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEMS IN SOME STATES!!!!
