The Long, Strange Saga of Kent Easter has ended. Sunbeams breaking through clouds, birds singing again and our collective sigh of relief being accompanied by a pleasing endorphin rush can mean only one thing, Orange County: Kent Wycliffe Easter is officially jail-bound.
The Hon. Judge Thomas Goethals made it official this morning, sentencing the Irvine dad to six months in jail–minus 76 days already served–for joining his fellow attorney wife in trying to frame an elementary school volunteer for drug possession because they thought she’d insulted their then-6-year-old son. She hadn’t.
Besides the jail time, Goethals from his Orange County Superior Court bench ordered Easter to spend three years on probation and perform 100 hours of community service. The cuckold attorney was also ordered to stay away from his victim, Kelli Peters, and the Peters family.
Forty-year-old Easter’s 41-year-old wife Jill Easter pleaded guilty last year on the eve of her trial on the same charge: false imprisonment by fraud and deceit, because Peters had been detained by police due to the Easters’ plot against her. Jill was ultimately sentenced to 120 days in jail and 100 hours of community service.
