Marissa Alexander gets 20 year sentence — 2 Comments

  1. Joyce, this is a thoroughly disturbing verdict AND sentence. As a survivor of DV&A, I can say that ANY victim who has been repeatedly abused is going to snap, at some point. Marissa Alexander didn’t “snap” and kill her abusive spouse. She fired warning shots. And, HE is the victim?

    I hope that she gets some serious legal representation in an appeal. What an OUTRAGEOUS sentence!!!

    And, the abuser gets a green light to abuse the next victim in line – carte blanche. He’ll milk that cow until it runs dry, you better believe it. The abuser is now the “poor victim.” Oh, brother…………

  2. Well, I hope that something “saves” this poor woman…about the only thing I can think of is if the governor “pardons” her but maybe her attorney can help in some way, all I can do for her is to pray.
