If you’ve followed Let’s Talk About It!, you know that we were among the first media outlets to cover the case of Marissa Alexander, a victim of domestic violence who was sentenced to 20 years in prison by a Florida court after firing a warning shot at an abusive husband (a warning shot that hurt noone). The case caused international outrage. Well, Marissa is back in the news today. This time, however, with good news.
It seems like an appeals court granted her a new trial. Details are coming in. You can be sure that we are going to have a lot to say about this in the coming days. In the mean time, read the decision from the court. Stay tuned.
