Marissa Alexander denied ‘stand your ground’ hearing 
Judge: ‘New evidence’ isn’t really new
July 21 2014
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A motion for a second “stand your ground” hearing for Marissa Alexander has been denied, in a ruling made Friday by Judge James Daniel.
Alexander’s new defense lawyers argued they had new evidence to present, including a recanting of statements made by the son of Alexander’s estranged husband, the night she fired a shot into the wall next to where he was standing with both sons.
Daniel said the so-called new evidence brought forth by Alexander’s defense lawyers isn’t really new and that the material facts of the case haven’t changed since the first stand your ground hearing.
Daniel said while the stand your ground law has been changed by the Legislature with the “warning shot” amendment — which grants immunity to people with clean criminal records who fire a warning shot or threaten to use deadly force in self-defense — it cannot be applied retroactively.
Mainly, Daniel said while the appeals court granted Alexander, 33, a new trial because of faulty jury instructions, it upheld the denial of the first stand your ground petition.
Specifically to that point, Daniel notes the appeals court said the question whether Alexander is entitled to immunity from prosecution via stand your ground “is no longer open for debate because that issue was definitely resolved … after a full and fair evidentiary hearing in a ruling that has now been affirmed by this court.”
In his motion for a second stand your ground hearing, defense attorney Bruce Zimet said Alexander would be subject to “manifest injustice” should he not have the opportunity to present new evidence. Daniel said all of what he calls new evidence was presented at trial, including the recanting of statements by Rico Gray’s son, who said he was pressured to lie by his father.
Alexander remains on home detention, having posted $200,000 bond. Her trial is scheduled for Dec. 1.

I’ve been talking about having a blog sale, and I’ve come to terms that everything that is sold 100% of the proceeds are going to help Gaza/Palestine. The whole situation has gotten me feeling really heartbroken and I truly want to give back. Everything that I’m going to be selling will be less than $20. The quad palettes on the left will be around $15, and the palettes on the right will be for $7. I have a whole lot of other things, but if you are interested right now in anything please email me at MakeupbyZeba@gmail.com, and I can send you better pictures if you want of the products. Or you can email me and ask me if I have a certain product and I will let you know. Most of these palettes have never been used or lightly swatched. Reblog this for your other followers who might be interested even if you don’t want to get anything. Thank you!
