Alexander was convicted of attempted murder
Two children were with him when she fired a shot in his direction, and she was charged with three counts of aggravated assault.
But a jury agreed with prosecutors that the law didn't apply because she left during the argument, got a gun and returned to confront him, WJXT reported.
But Corey argued that Stand Your Law did not apply because Alexander acted in anger. The judge agreed, saying that by returning to the house, she showed she was not in fear for her life.
Gray had been arrested twice on domestic battery allegations, but Alexander had been charged with domestic battery four months after the shooting, Jacksonville.com reported.

I think its time for us to start thinking about passing laws where if a teen is caught committing a crime that if convicted the parents do a little jail time.
Home protection shouldn't entitle someone to shoot anyone they see on their property, whatever the level of threat they present.
