Florida Woman in Warning-Shot Case Released
Florida Woman in Warning-Shot Case Released

CNN; December 1, 2013

A Florida woman who was sentenced to 20 years for firing a gun to scare off her allegedly abusive husband has been released from prison as she awaits a new trial, her attorney said.

Marissa Alexander was released Wednesday night, attorney Bruce Zimet said.
