Controlling Emotions During a Divorce

A divorce is one of the most emotional, tumultuous events a person can go through in life.  It is even more emotional and tumultuous for the partner who does not want the marriage to end.  When one partner is still in love and wants the relationship to continue, he or she can be heartbroken and bitter over the break-up.  Nevertheless, whatever the circumstances of the divorce, both partners need to be in control of their emotions and control their actions, as well.  Unfortunately, one Florida woman did not deal with her bitter divorce well and is now behind bars for her actions.

According to an article in the NY Daily News,  one heartbroken Florida woman going through a divorce is accused of spraying graffiti on the new Duval County Courthouse in Jacksonville, Florida.  Audrey Dostie, a 35-year-old woman who is going through a bitter divorce and custody battle, is accused of spray painting several messages in purple paint outside the new $350 million courthouse on Thursday night. Dotsie sprayed large, broken hearts on the pillars of the courthouse, a derogatory  message concerning the judge in her divorce case, as well as several other messages on the outside of the building.  Dotsie is  accused of spraying messages at her husband’s place of business, as well.

The Dotsie’s have been going through a long, drawn-out bitter divorce.  According to court documents, Dotsie’s husband has claimed she is physically abusive and recently filed a restraining order against her.

Dotsie, unfortunately, allowed her emotions to run amok and now faces charges of interruption of business or utilities and criminal mischief of more than $1,000.
