Florida state attorney files motion to block Marissa Alexander’s bond
Florida State Attorney Angela Corey filed a motion to revoke Marissa Alexander’s bond on Monday.
The move comes week’s after a judge ruled that Alexander could be freed as she awaits trial.
As a condition of her release, Alexander was to remain on home detention, however the motion sites numerous times she allegedly left her home to run errands.
Alexander was released on bond Nov. 27 while she awaits her new trial for firing a gunshot during an confrontation with her now ex-husband.
A hearing for this motion is set for Friday at 9 a.m.
Prior to her release on bond, Alexander was serving a 20 year sentence for firing a warning shot over the head of her estranged abusive husband. Her case came to light after the Trayvon Martin incident, another case responsible for bringing Florida’s controversial “stand your ground” law to the forefront.
Late last year, a judge ruled in favor of a new trial for Alexander after finding discrepancies in information passed down to the jury. Alexander’s trial is set for March 2014.
