Her life was nearly destroyed after being framed for drug possession by the parents of another child at her daughter's elementary school in Irvine, California.

The parents -- Jill and Kent Easter -- planted drugs including marijuana and pills -- in Peters's car as part of a campaign to have her ousted as PTA president and her reputation destroyed.

Criminal charges were brought against the Easter couple. Before planting the drugs, they had harassed and even filed a civil suit against Peters.
