Groves' wife, Rebecca Besherse, said she will petition to get the guns - a Remington .22-caliber long rifle and an Accu-Tek .380 handgun - returned to her. She'd like to sell them, now that her husband will be in prison and not at work. But she's not getting her hopes up.
She said she harbors no ill will toward the jury and wasn't surprised by the verdict.
"They did exactly what they were told to do," she said.
But she still can't understand her husband is in jail because of guns she owned before they even met.
"I did not become a felon by marrying him," she said.
Besherse said they'll appeal the conviction.
She'll soon head to the local Department of Social and Health Services office to apply for benefits on behalf of their 4-year-old daughter, Sophim. As a child of an incarcerated parent, the state will pay for housing, Besherse believes.
