Judge to decide whether to revoke Marissa Alexander’s bond

Marissa Alexander

Marissa Alexander could wind up back behind bars today if a judge decides to revoke her bond for running errands.

Alexander, 33, was sentenced to 30 years in prison for firing what she called a “warning shot” at her estranged husband who was at her home to pick up their son. The prosecution had argued that Alexander stalked her ex-husband because she had trouble letting go.

Alexander was convicted of aggravated assault with a firearm. But in September, an appeals court ordered Alexander released on $150,000 bond after her case received worldwide news coverage.

The appeals court ordered a new trial for Alexander, because the jury received improper instructions regarding her Stand Your Ground defense. The new trial is set for March.

Alexander was released in November to home detention with strict conditions regarding her movements. But she violated the conditions of her house arrest by running “errands.”

A judge will decide on Friday whether to throw Alexander back in prison.

“She continues to demonstrate her utter disregard for conforming her behavior to the rules … [others] must abide by,” state prosecutors wrote in a motion filed Tuesday.

Alexander’s lawyers argued that the state’s attorneys knew she received permission to run household errands. It isn’t clear who gave her the permission.

    I knew she was guilty when I first heard about this case. I bet her “household errands” were in the vicinity of her ex-husband’s house. Some women never learn. :coffee:

    And OJ wrote a damn book and committed a robbery. :pigsfly: beat up his wife and babymama and has been pulled over multiple times.

    The only one who learned a lesson was Casey Anthony. When was the last time you heard from her?

    She was going to the bank. Oh and her husband was beating her.Thats why she was using the Stand Your Ground defense, she wasnt stalking him. (From what i read)That’s why she fired her warning shot. @SandraRose Do you dont think it’s weird her prosecutor is going hard in the paint about this lady going to the bank, but George Zimmerman’s prosecutor practically helped his defense. Lol. Or that this lady got 20 years for shooting a wall but George Zimmerman walked away after shooting a person. If she was a white lady she would’ve been free…#filesnails

    I read (from HuffPost) that she picked up or dropped off relatives at the airport and regular household errands, like the grocery store and mall. Also read that the Sheriff’s officer assigned to her was aware of each errand.

    I am on the fence about her case…a few things have me questioning her behaviour. She had restraining orders against her husband prior to marrying him, but had the no-contact removed when she became pregnant with their child. Then…she married him, but left him and moved out 2 weeks later. 2 months later, she went back, stayed at their home and had breakfast with him and his kids the next morning. A fight happened after he viewed text messages on her phone (that she handed to him). However, after that fight, they were in separate parts of the home and she then tried to leave, but the garage was stuck…so she grabbed her gun and went back in the house…the story gets sketchy here…she either threatened him before getting the gun or he threatened her after she was back in the house and she shot..supposedly in the ceiling (conflicting reports say it was fired into the wall and struck the ceiling)…all while two minor children were present. On the fence if it was Stand Your Ground…if she was able to move freely around after the fight, why not just leave…or call the cops since he had fought you about the text messages…you still had a Restraining Order?

    @kamadiva

    no sense in trying to make sense in what abused women do. Having freedom to move about the house isn’t freedom. Just because a man doesn’t have you chained in his basement doesn’t mean you have the freedom especially with kids involved… plenty of abusers will say, “you can leave but MY kids are staying here”. Would you leave your kids there?

    Abuse isn’t just physical and rarely just starts off as a punch in the face, everyone always wants to ask “Well why didn’t you leave?” It is never that simple, even though it seems to be…

I’m sure if the sheriff’s office was aware of her errands a judge would not be considering revoking her bond and throwing her back in prison. Obviously there is more to this story, such as she was in the vicinity of her ex-husband’s house. Some women never learn. :coffee:

    She had a restraining order before they got married. There was a history of abuse, yet you go back to him, lift the protection order, marry and have kids with him? Now he off with the next chick and your kids living carefree..

    Chile.. that’s too much for a Friday.

    @ Sandra – could be the Prosecutor received a report that her monitor indicated she was not at home and filed motion after that ?? But I am sure the different levels of the Justice System in FL (and everywhere else) communicates very well with each other and there aren’t any breakdowns. :sarcasm:

    Again – she has displayed that she does not make the best decisions

    she needs to understand she is not FREE. she is basically in JAIL with the comforts of home.

    clearly, this broad is hard of understanding or she would not be in the position she’s in in the first place.
