Marissa Alexander Could Face 60-Year Sentence In Retrial

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Marissa Alexander could face a 60-year prison sentence instead of her original 20-year sentence when her aggravated assault case is retried in July.

The Florida Times-Union reports that the Office of State Attorney Angela Corey will try to put Alexander behind bars for 60 years if it is able to convict her for a second time.

Alexander, 33, was convicted in 2012 of three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and sentenced to 20 years in prison by Circuit Judge James Daniel under Florida’s 10-20-life law. Daniel imposed three separate 20-year sentences but ordered that they be served concurrently, which meant Alexander would get out in 20 years.

    It’s time for Angela Cory to be ousted as State Attorney. She can’t convict the right people, but stick it to the wrong people. She can’t handle this job.

    What do you mean Cory is correct it’s you dummies that don’t understand the law or know all the facts of the case that keep saying she is wrong….MA is going down for 20+ years again if not 60 years..learn the real truth to the case not the made up stuff.

    Good for Marissa & I
    hope she gets of scot-free as I’ve listen to gray’s 911 call and he sounds like
    he is scared,

    Considering that Gray
    admits he beat Marissa & 3 other women, I have 4 words for him “BATTERED
    WOMAN’S SYNDROME DEFENSE” as his punk behind probably never thought that a
    woman would stand up to him.

    But guess what; Marissa
    did & I hope that if he keeps his woman beating up that one of them will
    shoot him dead
