Marissa Alexander to Stay on House Arrest

Marissa Alexander remains on house arrest, won’t go back to prison

Marisa Alexander is free to go home. No jail time, but she remains on home detention. Her new trial is set for March 31st.

Alexander was in a Jacksonville courtroom today. Her “stand your ground” defense was unsuccessful in a 2012 trial and Alexander was sentenced to 20 years. That conviction was overturned on appeal. The same state attorney who prosecuted George Zimmerman is prosecuting the Alexander case. While in appeal, Alexander is on “home detention.”

During the month of December, Alexander went to the bank, the grocery store and ran other errands. The Duval County Sheriff supervisor who handles the home detention is testifying that she gave Alexander permission to run each “errand.” “I make the judgment call if she can go or not” April Wilson testified this morning.
