Last year, Marissa Alexander was at home when she feared for her life in an argument with her husband. Using a gun she was licensed to own, she fired one warning shot into the ceiling of her home that did not harm her attacker.
Because of this one gun shot, she was sentenced to 20 years of prison under Florida's 10-20-life law.
Marissa is a mother of a three year old and has spent the last year in jail for her actions. She is currently awaiting the status of an appeal trial and we can help!
We must continue to fight for those who are unjustly convicted. The struggle continues, but we will continue to fight until justice is served.
