Action Alert: 60 years in prison for firing warning shot against abusive husband
It's unconscionable that a woman who stands her ground against an abusive ex-husband could get 20 years in prison - never mind 60!
Marissa Alexander was given a 20 year sentence for firing a non-lethal warning shot at her ex-husband, moments after he choked her and just days after giving birth. State Attorney Angela Corey prosecuted her anyway. The appeals court has overturned Alexander's conviction -- and now Corey wants a 60 year sentence against her.
