JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville woman will have to wait to learn if she will be spending the next twenty years of her life behind bars.
Marissa Alexander was originally scheduled to be sentenced Monday morning. However, a judge delayed her sentencing.
Alexander will have a hearing April 30th for a judge to rule on post-trial motions. No new date has been set for her sentencing.
Marissa Alexander was convicted on three counts of aggravated assault after firing a warning shot at her ex-husband inside their home in 2010.
At the time, Alexander had already taken out a protective order against her ex-husband earlier that year when he was arrested for physically abusing her.
So when a fight started in their master bedroom, Alexander told police she feared for her life.
Alexander's attorney filed a Stand Your Ground motion before the trial, but the judge denied her immunity.
Alexander is looking at a mandatory sentence of 20 years.
