Woman jailed for turning in husband’s guns

The Florida State Attorney’s Office is being urged not to prosecute a woman who was arrested for turning in her husband’s guns to police while he was in jail on domestic violence charges. Courtney Irby spent six days in jail on charges of armed burglary and grand theft after she retrieved the assault rifle and handgun from her husband’s apartment and gave them to the police.

He's only charged. How the fuck can she give his property to the police until he's tried? It's clearly not evidence in the DV case.

Look at these bs headlines from the NYT and other papers, this isn't even a new precedent. She broke into someone's house and stole his property, we're supposed to let her off because she's a woman? Now THAT would be a scary precedent.

"After she retrieved the assault rifle.." "And what, exactly, is an assault rifle again?" "...you must really hate women!"

Well theft is certainly wrong but an innocent person shouldn’t lose their guns. If he is tried and found to be guilty then his weapons should be taken but not before.

I gotta be honest, if I was in her position and my husband had just been jailed for domestic violence, I would probably not want him coming back to weapons in the home. To be honest I would probably leave and take his guns with me though...

as much as I understand why she did what she did and that he doesnt deserve to have weapons if hes guilty... it's also not her property.

He should press fill charges... not sure if it settles the cost of the guns if not should sue her for them and take the opportunity to stack a divorce citing trust issues and theft of personal property as the reason.

How is this armed burglary, I didn't see anywhere, where it presents facts that she entered the apt armed with a deadly weapon. Does stealing a deadly weapon now make it armed burglary, I'm not enough of an armchair lawyer to say one way or the other. She should be charged but be given a slap on the wrist.
