Marissa Alexander remains free on bond; judge upset with JSO

10 Jan

Marissa Alexander appears before the media outside the Duval County courthouse with two of her lawyers, Bruce Zimet and Faith Gay, after Judge James Daniel allowed her release on bond to stand with modifications to the directives. She did not speak at the meeting.

A judge has ruled that Marissa Alexander can remain free on bond, although he made it clear that the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office erred in granting her too much leeway to leave home detention.

Assistant State Attorney Richard Mantei had requested Circuit Judge James Daniel to revoke her bond for going out shopping for clothes, driving family members to the hair shop and airport, getting a new driver’s license, visiting the bank and seeing a sister-in-law.
