IN: Court Dismisses Felony Counts because of Evidence of Self Defense

Larry Easter, 54, told Lake Criminal Court Judge Salvador Vasquez he had married his fiancee since the 2020 fight and would be successful on probation.

Defense attorney Adrian Guzman said Lake County prosecutors agreed to dismiss Easter's felony counts because recently gathered physical evidence didn't match up with a statement given by Easter's wife's friend.

Lake County Deputy Prosecutor Tara Villarreal said the evidence corroborated Easter's claim of self-defense with regard to his wife's friend.

According to charging documents, the friend became angry when Easter slapped his then-fiancee and grabbed a knife. Easter grabbed a gun from a closet, and the female friend was shot in the leg.
