Black Florida mother Marissa Alexander is being released after accepting a plea deal.

Reports indicate Alexander, who has spent a total of 1,030 days behind bars, accepted a plea that includes pleading guilty to three counts of aggravated assault and being sentenced to three years in prison.

The time she has spent in prison counts as time served, leaving only 65 days remaining of her sentence, starting Nov. 24. She could be released in January 2015.

Upon her release, Alexander must spend two years under “community control” and wear a monitoring device.

“The deal will help Marissa and her family avoid yet another very expensive and emotionally exhausting trial that could have led to the devastating ruling of spending the rest of her life in prison,” said Alisa Bierria of the Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign. “Marissa’s children, family and community need her to be free as soon as possible.”

Alexander made headlines in 2010 after she fired a warning shot in self-defense during an attack by her abusive estranged husband in Jacksonville, Fla., causing no injuries.

Her claim of protection under the “Stand Your Ground” was denied. She was convicted of aggravated assault and sentenced to a mandatory minimum of 20 years. That verdict was overturned and a new trial was ordered.

Alexander then faced three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, because the prosecutor added charges of also shooting at the two children of her ex-husband, who were present at the incident.

The nation was outraged that Alexander faced 60 years in prison. The case drew strong comparisons to the Trayvon Martin case, in which George Zimmerman fatally shot unarmed, Black 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and claimed self-defense. Zimmerman, a white Hispanic, was acquitted of murder.

Many criticized the Florida judicial system’s treatment of Alexander. Some believe she was treated differently because she is a Black woman.

The Free Marissa Now Mobilization Campaign vows to keep organizing for Alexander’s freedom and raising awareness about the issues surrounding her case. For the next 65 days, the campaign is urging Alexander’s supporters all over the world to organize rallies and forums that raise awareness about Alexander’s case and the cases of other incarcerated women who face similar circumstances. Rallies took place this week in Oakland, Calif., and Chicago, Ill.

“We will not stop organizing until Marissa Alexander is free!” said Aleta Alston Toure, a Free Marissa Now lead organizer based in Jacksonville. “During the next 65 days, we must continue to use the attention we’ve brought to Marissa’s case to highlight the broader ongoing crisis of mass incarceration, police violence and prosecutorial abuse. There are thousands of Marissa Alexanders still behind bars, still facing devastating prison sentences and still being threatened in their own homes.”
