AC360: Marissa Alexander speaks with Gary Tuchman “This is my life I’m fighting for”

Tonight on Anderson Cooper 360°, Gary Tuchman spoke with Marissa Alexander, a Florida woman who is serving 20 years in prison after her “stand your ground” defense failed.

Alexander fired a warning shot into the wall to scare away her abusive husband who was strangling her. The jury in her case came back after deliberating for 15 minutes.
