A hallway confrontation between State Attorney Angela Corey and Corrine Brown.
The Congresswoman joining the growing outrage in the Marissa Alexander sentencing.
"I watched in horror and extreme sadness as Judge James Daniel sentenced Marissa Alexander, a documented victim of domestic violence, to a mandatory minimum of 20 years in prison for firing warning shot into the air after she was attacked by her husband," said Brown. "The Florida criminal justice system has sent two clear messages today. One is that if women who are current victims of domestic violence try to protect themselves, the "Stand Your Ground Law" will not apply to them. The second message is that if you are black, the system might treat you differently."
But Corey responded, saying they gave Alexander a chance for a lighter sentence, but she refused. And that the "Stand Your Ground Law" doesn't apply in this situation.
"We explained to her that when she discharges a firearm in the direction of human beings, that the legislature says it’s dangerous and one of the reasons is because the bullet went through the wall where the children were standing," Corey said.
Alexander's attorney says she plans to appeal the ruling against her.
