Florida Mother Receives 20-Year Sentence For Firing Warning Shots
Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville, Fla. was sentenced to 20 years in prison Friday for firing warning shots against her allegedly abusive husband.
This is the most outrageous thing I have ever heard and I hope that this woman will be pardoned by the governor or something done to mitigate this outrageous sentence. I have been reading about the sentencing guidelines and the “three strikes you are out” (three felonies and you go to jail for life) and I think in the main they are fair, but this is a travesty of justice if ever there was one.
People get less than that for rape, murder, child abuse…and many many other things than firing a warning shot into a wall.
