Cali Couple's Devious Drug Trick Backfires

Talk about a bad way to solve a conflict: a couple in Orange County, California, apparently decided to take revenge on an elementary school volunteer who upset them by planting drugs on her. Kent Easter and Jill Easter—both, worryingly, attorneys by trade—were arrested yesterday for attempting to frame the woman who they felt didn't properly supervise their son. Authorities say Kent drove to the home of the volunteer back in February 2011, placed marijuana, Vicodin, Percocet and a used marijuana pipe in her unlocked car and then called the cops. But after investigating the home and car of “Jane Doe,” police felt that something wasn't right. “Jane Doe consented to a search of her home which showed no evidence to support drug use or possession and did not support a link to show that Jane Doe was knowingly in possession of the marijuana or prescription pills found in her vehicle,” says Irvine police spokeswoman Julia Engen, perhaps referring to an absence of munchie-type food products. After digging a little deeper, police identified the Easters as suspects; Engen says that Ken was in contact with his wife Jill via text during the alleged framing, and that he was also recorded on hotel video surveillance. The Easters have been charged with one felony count each of conspiracy to procure the false arrest and charging of the victim, false imprisonment and conspiracy to falsely report a crime. If convicted, they would each face a maximum of three years in prison.
