Marissa Alexander Might Face 60 Years in Prison

Marissa Alexander

Marissa Alexander, the Florida woman who was was convicted of three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and sentenced to 20 years in prison, is set for a retrial in July. Even though her conviction was thrown out, State Attorney Angela Corey will try to send her back to jail for triple the sentence—twenty years per count. Really, there is someone in Florida who actually thinks that sentencing a woman to 60 years in prison, basically doling out a life sentence, for not killing anyone while she was being attacked is a sound, reasonable decision. And she's the State Attorney.

As a reminder, Alexander was convicted and sentenced for firing warning shots—just warning shots—at her husband who, during an argument, attacked her. She is currently at home waiting for her retrial.
