JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Prosecutors say Marissa Alexander violated the terms of her pretrial release and should be back in jail, according to the state's motion to modify or revoke her bond.
Alexander, according to court documents obtained by Action News, received "stringent" special conditions as part of her release from jail on Nov. 27, 2013.
The court required Alexander to stay on home detention, and "not be allowed to leave her residence except for court appearances, medical emergencies, and to satisfy any requirements of her pretrial services programs."
"Mere days after being released," authorities say Alexander "flouted" the conditions of her release by shopping for clothes, ferrying family members to and from the hair shop and airport, going to the bank and auto repair shop, getting new glasses and a new driver's license, and going to the office of a former attorney.
"The defendant has not submitted herself to the power of the Court; rather, she continues to demonstrate her utter disregard for conforming her behavior to the rules others must abide by," wrote the State Attorney's Office in its motion.
A hearing on the motion is set for Friday.
Alexander's story became national headlines last year. She tried to use the stand your ground law as a defense in a shooting in 2010. She and her husband had a fight.
Alexander claimed he was abusive and that she fired a gun as a warning shot while her two stepchildren stood nearby.
The State Attorney's Office denied the stand your ground claim because a judge ruled she fired the gun in anger and not in fear.
Alexander, who also refused a plea deal for a 3-year prison term, was convicted on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She received the maximum sentence of 20 years.
A Florida appeals court ordered a new trial, ruling the trial judge did not properly instruct the jury handling the case.
Alexander bonded out of jail the day before Thanksgiving last year.
Action News reached out to Alexander’s attorney Tuesday for comment, you can read their response attached to this web story.
