Fla. Woman in ‘Stand Your Ground’ Case Released From Jail
Marissa Alexander, a Florida woman awaiting a new trial in a “stand your ground” case, was released from jail Wednesday night on a bond totaling $200,009 for three separate charges.
In a statement Thursday morning, the Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign said:
“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.”
