A new trial on an excessive sentence 

A judge granted Marissa Alexander a new trial Thursday. Although she used the "Stand Your Ground" defense, she was sentenced last May to 20 years for firing a warning shot in the air to scare off her abusive husband. Chris Hayes talks with Florida State Senator Dwight Bullard, a Democrat who has been working to get Marissa Alexander pardoned.
