Alexander is represented by Public Defender Meagan O'Connell. She told Judge Hinrichs that Alexander was on felony probation for a HS 11365 charge and never suffered any violation of probation. Ms. O'Connell also said that defense investigator found that one of the alleged victims may have been molested in the past, by someone other than her client.
