Two parents allegedly planted drugs on an elementary school volunteer in a frame-job, simply because they were unhappy with her, according to authorities.
The California couple has been accused of planting drugs on a part-time volunteer/teacher at their son’s elementary school because they weren’t happy with the supervision their son was getting from her. Jill and Kent Easter (who are both attorneys, interestingly enough) were arrested Tuesday for their sinister scheme to frame volunteer woman at the Plaza Vista School in Irvine, California according to KABC-TV.
The Easters are charged with conspiracy to procure the false arrest of the elementary-school parent volunteer, false imprisonment and conspiracy to falsely report a crime. If they’re convicted, they’ll get three years for their trouble.
According to Daily News, Kent put a bag of prescription pain killers, marijuana, and a marijuana pipe in the volunteer woman’s car, then called the police crafting a story about the woman hiding drugs in her car. “They tried to make me look like the worst person you could be when you’re involved with a school,” the volunteer told KTLA. “I wouldn’t have seen my daughter again, I think. Those are the nightmares that I had.” Police detained her for a few hours until they were able to determine that she was in a classroom at the time Kent said he saw her hiding drugs in her car.
“She [the volunteer] was shocked,” Irvine Police Lt. Julia Engen said. “She had no idea where those items came from. Things just didn’t seem to add up.”
The Easters’ babysitter is also shocked that her employers would do something so rash and crazy. “They’re always so positive and happy, and I just can’t imagine them even doing anything like this,” she said.
Well, they did.
Do you think the couple should be convicted in this conspiracy?
