A disagreement between PTA moms led to a false imprisonment scheme, according to The Los Angeles Times. In 2010 Jill Easter and Kelli Peters feuded when Peters refused to bring out Easter’s son after school so she could bring him home. To get even Easter contrived an elaborate drug scheme to have Peters arrested and incarcerated. Easter is guilty of placing drugs, including a marijuana pipe, Vicodin and Percocet, in Peters’s car and forcing her husband, Kent Wycliffe Easter, to call the police on the unsuspecting PTA volunteer. Easter was also having an affair.

Kent Easter’s attorney is making it clear that the unknowing husband had no idea what his wife was truly getting him into as a result of her grand revenge scheme. It has also been made clear that his wife was the mastermind solely behind the framing of the drugs, leading to Peters’s sudden arrest. The husband’s attorney, Tom Bienert, commented, “Kent Easter was a trusting husband, what he wasn’t was a standup to his wife. By the end of the trial, you will see that Kent was a good human being who didn’t have a backbone against his wife, she wore the pants in the family.” The couple has since separated, but they have not yet divorced. Mrs. Easter has pleaded guilty to false imprisonment.
