Marissa Alexander Trial Set for July 28
Marissa Alexander’s new trial has been postponed until July 28.
Last month, we told you the Florida mom will remain free while she awaits retrial. Next Monday, February 10 marks the third anniversary of Alexander’s incarnation. She was sentenced to 20 years after firing what she claims was a warning shot at her estranged, abusive husband.
Originally, her retrial was scheduled to take place March 31; however, her attorney said the date was “too soon for adequate preparation.”
Events are scheduled to take place beginning Saturday, February 8 until Sunday, February 16 across the country in an effort to raise awareness about domestic violence. For more information, or to find an event near you, visit freemarissanow.org.
