"Wife planned drug scheme against PTA volunteer, husband's lawyer says"

If you're ever accused of writing unrealistic exam questions, you might cite to this story, from the Los Angeles Times, for the proposition that nothing is unrealistic:

Kent Wycliffe Easter, 40, is accused of felony false imprisonment for his alleged role in having school volunteer Kelli Peters arrested after he called police to report she had drugs in the back seat of her car.

His wife, Jill Bjorkholm Easter, 40, who was accused of planting the drugs, pleaded guilty last month to false imprisonment.

The case stems from a 2010 disagreement between Jill Easter and Peters, in which Jill Easter said the after-school volunteer did not bring her son out quickly enough when she went to pick him up at Plaza Vista Elementary.

"I'll get you," Peters testified Jill Easter told her.
