UPTOWN_marissa_alexander1 Florida State Attorney Angela Corey has filed a motion to revoke the bond of Marissa Alexander claiming that she has violated her parole, according to Florida Coast News.

Under bond, Alexander was to remain on home detention and was not allowed to leave the house except for special conditions, court appearances or medical appointments. However,  the motion cites numerous times she allegedly left her home to run errands.

Alexander was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot at her husband. She was convicted on multiple counts of aggravated assault with a firearm in 2012. Alexander was released on bond this past November while she awaits her new trial.

A hearing for this motion is set for Friday at 9 a.m.

  • How many violations is that now? 4? She needs to go.

    The limitations that were placed on her may seem unfair but those were the conditions of her freedom. Abide by them.

    She may be guilty of not being able to see the larger picture, which I thought was a new trial and her freedom.

    Even that crazy jerk George Zimmerman followed the rules when he was under home detention.

      @ RJ

      ITA. If I were Marissa, I would have just hunkered down in my home like a doomsday prepper and just wait. The state attorney Corey is out for her blood given their history and her credibility was seriously questioned during the Zimmerman trial.

      Oh, Marissa you’ve come far, don’t blow it over nonsense!

      Agreed Eyes Wide shut. She may be acting out but she does not hold the cards and I too think corey has her issues. The fact that she was charged to begin with was ridiculous.

  • I don’t know what to say..I just hope she follows the rules from now on. This is not the same to have the “they can’t tell me what to do ” attitude. They are trying to send her back, don’t give them any reason to.

    Her defense team responded to the motion and said that for each of the times in question, Marissa requested and was granted permission to leave from the “Correctional Service Counselor” appointed to supervise her release, so…may be more to the story that what is reported. If she is NOT following the conditions of her release, that will definitely be disappointing, but at this point if the choice is between Marissa Alexander or the state of Florida’s fine, upstanding criminal justice system, I’m inclined to give the benefit of the doubt to Marissa.
