JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says it will take corrective action, if necessary, against JSO counselor April Wilson, in light of the Marissa Alexander bond controversy.

Alexander appeared in court on Friday where a judge acknowledged mistakes were made but stopped short of revoking Alexander's bond.

The State Attorney's office argued Alexander violated the terms of her pretrial release by going shopping and running other errands while on home detention.

Lauri-Ellen Smith said, "It appears that our counselor violated the court order for the home detention release of Marissa Alexander.  We are conducting an administrative investigation, and any necessary corrective action will be taken."

Alexander is awaiting a new trial in her aggravated assault case, in which she received a 20-year prison sentence. A Florida appeals court ordered a new trial, ruling the trial judge did not properly instruct the jury handling the case.
