Estranged Wife Convicted in Setup of Husband

FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - The wife of an Orange County high school teacher has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to one year of home confinement for planting drugs and a gun in the trunk of her estranged husband's car.

Authorities said Friday thirty-three-year-old Devon Eileen Abbott and her boyfriend Soloman Brian Silver conspired to hide a shotgun, marijuana and prescription pills in the car of Sunny Hills High School teacher Gregory Abbott.

The teacher was arrested on drug and weapons charges but these
were dropped when it became apparent he was the victim of a setup.

Silver pleaded guilty to a felony count of possession of a firearm by a felon and was sentenced to three years in prison.

Abbott also entered a plea to one misdemeanor count of transportation of marijuana.
