Alexander was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but a judge ordered her to receive a new trial.

Now, the State Attorney’s Office has announced they’re seeking a 60-year sentence for Alexander – triple her original sentence!

Who’s prosecuting the case? Well, it’s none other than State Attorney Angela Corey’s office.

Corey is the prosecutor whose failure to convict George Zimmerman played out on an international stage.

via Poor Marissa Alexander now facing 60 years in prison.

Every time I see the name Angela Corey, a song pops in my head:

Well Don’t trust your soul to no back woods Southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstains on his hands.
Reba McEntire “The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia

It unfortunately says a lot about Florida Lawyers when somebody like Corey is not at least under investigation and deep scrutiny by the Florida Bar. This is not the action of a prosecutor intent on justice be served but of a petty person engaged in judicial revenge.

We are getting very close to a Banana Republic-type judicial system in this country.  Instead of checks and balances, now every branch has decided to augment its own power without interference from the others on the back of the citizens they are supposed to be working for.

Not a good sign.

Hat Tip to Florida Carry.

  1. In a statement from the AG office, it was said that they’re not pushing for 60 years, but that legislation requires it. What confuses me is, why didn’t the legislation require 60 years the first time she was convicted? Maybe Corey is charging her with three counts instead of one. Personally, Alexander should have take the three year deal they offered to her the first time. Maybe she bought into the whole “kill at will” and “shoot first” crap the gun prohibitionists spout and thought she could get away with it.

    1. We have a screwed up law in Florida. You can shoot the attacker and claim self defense but God Forbid you as a good-natured person want to avoid a killing and the states sends you to prison.

  2. Wait — isn’t she the one who LEFT the house she wasn’t living in and wasn’t supposed to be in, and then left a place of safety she had achieved (the garage, and I DO NOT believe her “inability to leave it”, nor would it have made a difference — had she holed up in there and ended up shooting, different case altogether), to return to the inside of a home she was not living, to fire a gun?

    Sounds more like SHE was the illegal aggressor all along, even if her ex- had a violent history. . .
