Marissa Alexander bonds out of jail
JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- The Jacksonville mother convicted of shooting at her estranged husband has bonded out of jail.
Marissa Alexander was released just before midnight Wednesday. She is now under house arrest.
Alexander is awaiting a new trial for firing two shots near her estranged husband.
A judge ruled in September that Alexander would receive a new trial due to bad jury instructions given in her first trial.
Alexander and her attorneys say she fired the gun as a "warning shot."

“The State Attorney’s Office made all statements regarding its position on bond in its written response dated November 13, 2013. The SAO will continue to seek justice for our two child victims and their father who were endangered by the shot the defendant fired at them.
