Awareness Campaign Kicks Off For Mom Facing 60 Years In Prison After Firing Warning Shot at Abusive Husband

Awareness campaign kicks off for Marissa Alexander.


Reported by Krystle Crossman

Marissa Alexander,  a mother of three, has been serving time behind bars for the last two years after her involvement in a confrontation with her estranged husband in 2010. Her husband had threatened to kill her during this confrontation, which resulted in her grabbing a gun and firing a warning shot in the presence of the couple’s children. Alexander was arrested and in 2012, sentenced to a 20-year term in prison.

Supporters of Alexander are trying to spread awareness  about the case and trying to get Alexander freed from prison. The campaign launched on Mother’s Day and will continue throughout the week. Alexander’s ex-husband, Rico Gray Sr., stated that if the kids had not been in the house at the time, he probably would have beαten her. He also admitted to threatening to kill her, yet Alexander is the person on trial and behind bars. She turned down a plea deal that could have gotten her a lesser sentence, in hopes that she’d win her case. She was a victim of dοmestic viοlence at the hands of Gray. She used self-defense and Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground as defenses, but neither was accepted by the judge.

Alexander is in preparation to be retried, as the judge felt that her first trial put too much of the burden of proof on Alexander since she claimed to be a battered wife. The mother of three is now facing up to 60 years in prison for the same crime that she has already been sentenced for. Her supporters are hoping that their campaign not only sheds light on the horrible circumstances of this situation, but they are also hoping that it sheds more light on dοmestic viοlence. Alexander claims that she was trying to save her children’s life and her own, yet she is now serving prison time for it.
