TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville mother of three will have to wait to see if the state will toss out her conviction.

Marissa Alexander is serving 20 years for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Alexander was convicted of firing a single gunshot during an alleged domestic with her ex-husband.

No one was hurt. The bullet only hit a wall and ceiling.

Alexander claimed it was a warning shot for her ex-husband, so she tried to use Florida's controversial Stand Your Ground defense.

But the court denied her request to do so, which sparked outrage among Alexander's supporters and thrust her case into the spotlight.

Rev. Jesse Jackson even traveled to Jacksonville this summer to meet with Alexander and boost her hopes for an appeal.

On Wednesday, Florida's Clemency Board met in Tallahassee, but did not hear Alexander's case.

State Senator Dwight Bullard (D-Miami) had asked members to pardon Alexander.

No decision was made either way.

Governor Rick Scott would need at least two members of the four member clemency board to start the pardon process.
