Why A Woman Says Her Neighbor’s 7- And 9-Year-Old Children Showed Up On Her Doorstep With Packed Suitcases

Linda said her neighbor, Sandra, was in the middle of a bitter custody battle with her ex-husband, Joey, and she was tired of watching the couple’s two daughters get caught in the middle, so she wrote to Dr. Phil for help.

She claimed that the girls often showed up at her apartment after, she says, their mother would leave them alone for hours. She also claimed that they said they were hungry and appeared disheveled.

Sandra denies ever putting the children in harm’s way and explains she does not leave them outside alone for hours, that they frequently check in with her.

“When the girls are late for school, that isn’t her fault; that’s their fault. When their hair isn’t brushed, that’s their fault. When they have dirty clothes on, that’s because they didn’t tell her they needed clean clothes,” Linda says, referring to what she says are some of Sandra’s excuses when it comes to her daughters.

Sandra says that the reason her daughter “wore the same outfit for a week” was because she insisted on wearing it and that Sandra washed it by hand every night.

When Linda, Sandra and Joey first appeared on Dr. Phil, Joey took a polygraph and drug test to demonstrate his innocence, and passed both. Sandra agreed to take both tests, but didn’t in the end take either.

Since the show, both Linda and Joey claim Sandra has been at times confrontational with them.

“As soon as we walked off the stage, Sandra was right in my face trying to defend herself. She was saying she didn’t leave the children alone for three hours; it was three hours, but they kept coming up and down stairs, so that doesn’t count,” Linda claims. “I know the things I said were true.”

WATCH: What Caused Sandra To Walk Off Stage?

Linda claims that recently, the girls showed up to her door at 9:30 p.m. after walking down three flights of stairs with large suitcases and their scooter.

“I opened the door, and they were both crying and they said, ‘Mommy said we can never come back here. We [ran] away, we can never come back,’” Linda claims. “They brought all of their stuff in and they said, ‘Ms. Linda, if we stay in the bushes and someone stabs us, you’ll come, right?’”

Linda recalls that their suitcases were filled with clothes and food and claims that she received a text from Sandra an hour later asking if the girls were with her. “She said, ‘Wasn’t it nice of me to pack their suitcases? And I even gave them some of my jackets. And I gave them food. Was that nice?’” Linda claims.

When Sandra and Joey recently returned to the show, Sandra explained that she now believes that her daughters were making up lies, and said that she was willing to take a polygraph to show that she had not “coached” her daughters.

“Now that Sandra has decided that all the lying is the girls’ fault, I’m very, very worried for them,” Linda says. “She says she wants to have both of the girls polygraphed to prove that they are the ones who are lying.”

On Tuesday’s episode, find out if Sandra finally takes the polygraph. Check here to see where you can watch.


What Caused Sandra To Walk Off Stage?

Exes Sandra and Joey were in a bitter custody battle with accusations ranging from physical abuse and poisoning ice cream, to feeding their girls moldy food and teaching them how to steal. Sandra even accused Joey of sexually molesting one of their daughters, and putting the other in a garbage bag full of rocks, dumping her in the bathtub and then turning on the water. When they first appeared on the show, Joey took – and passed – a polygraph that indicated he was being truthful when he denied ever molesting one of his children.

Joey also absolutely denies the other allegations, calls them “outrageous” and accuses Sandra of coaching the girls to make up what he calls “outlandish lies.”

Linda, Sandra’s neighbor, says that she didn’t know who to believe and first wrote to Dr. Phil to get answers.

Mom Accused of Coaching Daughters To Lie About Ex Comes Back To Explain Her Story

Exes Sandra and Joey were engaged in a bitter custody battle, with accusations ranging from physical abuse and poisoning ice cream to feeding their girls moldy food and teaching them how to steal. When they first appeared on the show, Sandra even accused Joey of sexually molesting one of their daughters. Joey completely denied the allegations, calling them “outrageous” and accused Sandra of coaching the girls to make up what he called “outlandish lies” — and he passed a polygraph test to prove he was telling the truth.

 

But Sandra says that she felt like she didn’t get the chance to tell her side of the story, and now, she wants to set the record straight.

 

“I wanted to come back to the Dr. Phil show to get peace for my family and to get the actual facts out there,” Sandra says. “On the show, 90 percent of it was inaccurate.”

She also says she is now ready to take a polygraph test, which she was offered during her first appearance but ultimately didn’t take.

 

“I came back to take a polygraph test to prove that all the accusations were honestly the girls coming home telling me whatever it may have been,” she says. “I’ve never coached my girls, I’ve never lied to Dr. Phil or the public. People have seen mislead facts, and that’s why I’m here, to give the true story.”

 

In the video above, Dr. Phil reviews statements from the previous show made by Sandra’s neighbor, Linda — who originally wrote to the show to get help for Sandra and Joey — that Sandra says are complete lies about her, and gives Sandra the opportunity to explain her behavior. And, is Sandra now willing to take a drug test?

Strong Words For Mom Accused Of Making False Allegations About Ex After He Passed Polygraph

Sandra had accused her ex, Joey, of molesting their two daughters, claiming that the girls told her he inappropriately touched them. Joey vehemently denied the accusations and passed a polygraph, but he claims Sandra continues to make the false allegations against him, a claim she denies.

Dr. Phil attempts to find out the truth from Sandra.

“Are you still telling people that he has molested your daughters … since he passed his polygraph?” Dr. Phil asks. “Have you told people that he has molested your children or tried to drown them in the bathtub?”

“Actually, I have not,” Sandra replies.

Joey claims that, from what he has heard, that isn’t true. “There are several people who have come to me and said, ‘Sandra told me that you tried to drown your kids,’ after the show aired. And the girls have told me, ‘Mommy still says that you hit us,’” he says.

Dr. Phil addresses Sandra. “It’s really very important to me that you think really hard and you really tell me the truth here,” he says. “I want to get you help. I want to help this family, but you cannot just continue to say one thing to one person something else to somebody else.”

Dr. Phil continues, “There’s going to be a forensic investigation done here, and these people that are saying this are going to swear out affidavits, they’re going to file it with the court – people who have no reason to lie. I beg of you, think about what you say … if you blatantly lie in the face of those affidavits, it’s going to look terrible for you.”

“I haven’t lied,” Sandra maintains.

Mom Called 7- and 9-Year-Old Daughters ‘Liars’, Saying They ‘Manipulate’ And ‘Betrayed’ Her

Sandra and her ex, Joey, were in a bitter battle over custody over their two young daughters. Sandra accused Joey of poisoning their daughters’ ice cream, trying to drown one of them, and even sexually abusing them. Joey adamantly denied the accusations and when they first appeared on the show, Joey took a polygraph exam to prove he was telling the truth and passed. Joey claims Sandra coached their daughters to lie about him.

In the clip above, Sandra explains why she places a lot of the blame on her daughters for causing the drama.

“Knowing the fact that I haven’t coached my kids and Joe passing the polygraph test, there’s only two other little people in the story, and the information that my daughters were giving me was inaccurate,” she says. “Unfortunately, they are liars. The girls made themselves out to be the victims, but they are the ones that started all of this.”

She says that after she sand Joey initially spoke with Dr. Phil, they had a conversation with their daughters about the accusations to get to the truth.

“Joe and I talked to the girls together about Joe trying to drown my daughter, and she said it wasn’t true,” she says. “They were so, like, in detail to where months later they remembered certain facts. It scares me a little bit because, it’s like, what are my girls capable of?”

Sandra claims the girls also manipulate her and Joey. “The girls told me they didn’t have toys at Daddy’s house. Come to find out, that wasn’t true,” she says. “These two little girls that you adore and love and you bring into the world, and then, they betray you, that makes me feel horrible. They did this.

Father, Girlfriend Respond After He Fails Polygraph Exam Regarding Molestation Claims

Jayson was stripped of his parental rights after official findings that he had molested two of his children. When he welcomed a son with his new girlfriend, Kristina, authorities again intervened and barred Jayson from seeing the child.

When asked, “Did you ever touch your oldest daughter for sexual reasons?”, the results of the polygraph exam indicated that Jayson was being “deceptive” when he answered “No.”

“How is that?” Jayson asks when Dr. Phil reveals the results. “I know I never touched them … I don’t understand.”

According to Jayson, the reason CPS revoked his rights to his other children was due to neglect. But, he claims, “I never touched my kids inappropriately.”

Behind The Scenes: Dr. Phil Visits WWE’s ‘Monday Night Raw’

“I was recently caught in the middle of an argument between a controlling father and an entitled daughter at one of the most unlikely places ever. I definitely felt like a fish out of water and stood out like a sore thumb in these surroundings, where angry people wearing bright colored Speedos, shiny tights and war paint, while administering smackdowns, were the norm.”

That’s how Dr. Phil describes his experience when he visited WWE’s “Monday Night Raw” back in April.

Jayson’s parental rights were terminated to his four children from a previous relationship after findings that he had sexually molested two of his kids.

Just two hours after giving birth to her son, Kristina says her family was ripped apart.

“The day that we had our child was one of the best days of our lives and also the worst day of our lives,” she says. “That was the last day we were able to be a family.”

Kristina says shortly after giving birth, Child Protective Services visited her in the hospital and told her that her boyfriend, Jayson, must leave the hospital immediately and have no contact with their newborn son.

“CPS said Jayson has been accused of sexually molesting his daughter and his son,” Kristina explains. “Some of the things that I was told were some of the most heinous things that you could ever possibly think of an adult doing with a child. It made me physically sick to my stomach.”

Kristina says when she first met Jayson, it was “love at first sight.” Within two weeks of their first meeting, Kristina says she let Jayson move in with her and her two sons.

While Kristina says she was aware Jayson – who adamantly denies the findings against him – had lost his parental rights to his four children from a previous relationship, she claims he never mentioned the abuse claims.

“Jayson told me that he had lost the rights to his four children because of his ex-wife being neglectful,” Kristina says.

Jayson, however, insists he told Kristina about the molestation findings against him.

“I don’t know if she’s lying or doesn’t remember, but I did show her the paperwork from CPS,” Jayson claims. “I did not know that CPS was going to remove the child if I had another child with another woman.”

However, Kristina says that according to CPS, Jayson knew he would not be allowed to have any more children – which she says she learned while in the hospital.

“The CPS worker told me that Jayson was aware that if he had any other children after his four previous children, that they automatically would be taken away from him. He never mentioned that to me,” Kristina adds. “I was devastated.”

It was then, Kristina says, that she was faced with a difficult choice of choosing between her son and the man she’s in love with.

“CPS gave me a choice. They said if I don’t sign the piece of paper that would keep Jayson out of my son’s life, they would have to take custody of all three of my children,” she says. “Jayson hasn’t seen his son now for two-and-a-half months.”

Now, Kristina says she’s searching for the “truth.”

“I believe that CPS made up these allegations to take his children away from him,” she adds. “I’m still in love with him even today.”

Kristina admits that Jayson gave her paperwork from court and from CPS when he first moved in – but she says she looked at them, yet never saw the details on the sexual allegations.

“At the beginning, it doesn’t talk about the sexual abuse and things like that,” she tells Dr. Phil. “I just never got to the sexual allegations. For whatever reason … If I would have, he wouldn’t have been in my house.”

Jayson says the day his infant son was born was both the “happiest and saddest day” of his life.

That’s because, just hours after his girlfriend Kristina gave birth, Child Protective Services came to the hospital and gave Kristina an ultimatum: lose your baby or lose your boyfriend.

“CPS said Jayson has been accused of sexually molesting his daughter and his son [from a previous relationship],” Kristina says. “CPS gave me a choice.

Mother Claims Rival Parent Tried To Kill Her After Schoolyard Confrontation

Jill Easter, now known as Ava Everhart, a once high-powered attorney and her ex-husband, Kent, also an attorney, were arrested for allegedly framing Kelli Peters, a former PTA president, at their son’s elementary school. Peters claims that she and Easter got into a disagreement during after school pickup and that after that, the couple harassed her for a year and eventually devised a plot to frame Peters by stashing drugs in her car and having her arrested.

 

But Everhart, who denies hatching any plot against Peters, claims that after the schoolyard spat, Peters threatened her life.

 

“I do have proof that Kelli was showing up in private areas where we lived and also approaching my son at school,” Everhart tells Dr. Phil in an exclusive interview airing Wednesday.

Peters absolutely denies Everhart’s accusations. “All this stuff she says I was doing to her, she was doing to me,” she claims.

 

“How did she try and kill you?” Dr. Phil asks. “What was your basis for representing to the court, as an officer of the court, that she was trying to kill you?”

 

“She was following me, she was coming to private areas, she was approaching our son, she seemed unhinged, and she was issuing threats,” Everhart says. 

 

“What were the threats?” Dr. Phil probes.

 

“It’s been seven years, I’d have to read it again. I don’t like to think about it,” she says.

 

On Wednesday’s episode, hear more about the elaborate plot to frame Peters. Check here to see where you can watch.

Former PTA President Recalls Being Questioned By Police After A Parent Planted Drugs in Her Car At Her Child’s School

Former PTA President Kelli Peters claims she was terrorized and framed by a fellow school mom Jill Easter and her ex-husband, Kent, after an alleged schoolyard spat at their children’s school. Peters claims that after she and Easter, who now goes by Ava Everhart, got into a confrontation during afterschool pickup, the couple set out to destroy her reputation.

 

Peters says she endured a year of nonstop harassment by Everhart and her husband, which she claims included them filing police reports against her, attempting to have her removed from the school, filing lawsuits against her, getting a restraining order and Everhart claiming to the court that Peters was trying to kill her.

 

“I always thought I was going to be killed,” Peters says.

 

Peters says that one year to the day after her confrontation with Everhart, drugs were planted in her car and Kent Easter called the police, claiming she was behaving erratically and under the influence of drugs. The police showed up at school and questioned Peters.

 

“My car was surrounded by police,” she recalls. “I kind of jokingly said, ‘Is there a dead body in my car?’ He said, ‘No, but somebody saw you putting drugs in your car.’ I thought, this is a joke.”

 

When she arrived at her car, she says she could see a “big, giant bag of marijuana” sitting on the backseat, she tells Dr. Phil, describing the incident in detail in the video above.

 

“I started crying, saying the usual, ‘Those aren’t my drugs. I don’t know where they came from.’ And it got serious real fast,” she says. “They took the drugs out, and they put it on top of the cop car, and  …”

 

Peters says in addition to the marijuana, police found pills and a crack pipe. She then underwent a field sobriety test – in front of many people who were at the school – which she passed. “They detained me for a couple of hours,” she says.

 

After continuing to deny that the drugs were hers, she says a police officer asked her if someone could have planted the drugs in her car, to which she says she replied that must have been what happened.

 

“He said, ‘Do you have any enemies?’” she says. “I started to think. It started to dawn on me. I have an enemy, yes.”

 

Both Everhart, who denies planting the drugs, and her ex-husband were arrested. Kent admitted to having put the drugs in Peters’ car and made the 911 call that resulted in Peters’ detention. Everhart pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of false imprisonment and was sentenced to four months in prison.

But Everhart, although she pleaded guilty to fraud and deceit for her part in the ordeal, now denies knowing that drugs were being planted in Peters’ car.

 

“You had nothing to do with that?” Dr. Phil asks Everhart in an exclusive interview airing Wednesday.

 

“That’s right,” she replies. “They combed through everything that I ever owned and they never found any reference to it.”

 

“But they did find your DNA on the pills,” Dr. Phil points out.

PTA Mom Claims Another Mom Tortured Her, Allegedly As Revenge For Schoolyard Spat

Former PTA President Kelli Peters claims she was terrorized and framed by a fellow mom, high-powered attorney Jill Easter, and her ex-husband, Kent, after a spat at their children’s school. Peters claims that after she and Easter, who now goes by Ava Everhart, got into a confrontation during afterschool pickup about the whereabouts of Everhart’s son, the couple set out to destroy her reputation.

 

“She just went after me full force,” Peters alleged. “The lies started there. She just started saying anything that she could – that I hurt her son, that I dragged him out back, that I bloodied his knuckles, that I punished him, that I called him names, berated him, just went on and on.”

 

The confrontation, which occurred seven years ago in Orange County, CA, allegedly began when Everhart showed up at school to pick up her son and couldn’t find him. She claimed that when she asked Peters, whom she describes as a “supervisor” of the afterschool program, where he was, she did not give her a satisfactory response.

 

“When I asked her to explain why the teacher had to find my son and bring him to the front, she said that my son was detained because he was slow,” she says. “I don’t think in any world you can blame a child that’s just out of kindergarten for you not doing your job. That’s not a satisfactory explanation.” She also claims that when her son was found, he was crying, dirty and had cuts on his body.

 

Peters says she never insulted Everhart’s son. “She’s just making some story up at this point. That’s all a lie,” she says.

 

Peters says that when she refused to continue the conversation with Everhart, she threatened Peters. “I said, ‘I’m done. This is crazy,’ and that made her very angry. She lost her mind over it. I turned my back, and she yelled, ‘I will get you!’” Peters claims.

 

Peters alleges that the next day, Everhart started handing out flyers in front of the school that described the confrontation and made false accusations against Peters. “That was the beginning of five years of torture,” she says.

 

Everhart flatly denies making the flyer and says she did not launch a campaign against Peters.  

 

Dr. Phil asks Peters, “She’s pled guilty to creating these problems in your life, now she’s coming and sitting and talking to me saying, ‘Didn’t happen, wasn’t there,’?”

 

“She’s nuts,” Peters replies.

 

Peters claims that Everhart also filed a police report against her, attempted to have her removed from the school and any Irvine school, filed lawsuits against her, filed a restraining order against her, told a judge that she tried to kill Everhart and that she was stalking Everhart.

9 Red Flags To Look For To Identify A Potentially Abusive Relationship

Abuse can often be predicated by consistent warning signs – and being aware of those warning signs can help victims potentially avoid being stuck in an abusive relationship.

Through her When Georgia Smiled: The Robin McGraw Revelation Foundation, Robin has worked tirelessly with victims of domestic violence.

“Very recently, I spent the evening in the Emergency Room … and I was with a beautiful young woman who had just been abused by her husband. She had been with him for 10 years – all through middle school, high school and college. And I had spent the evening with her in the hospital. She had a dislocated shoulder and a dislocated knee. He had just thrown her down the stairs while she was holding their 3-month-old baby and she said, ‘You know, Robin, I really never saw this coming. I always thought he was the love of my life. I really believed that we would be together forever. I never saw it coming.”

Robin shared with this woman this list of the nine warning signs of an abusive relationship from WhenGeorgiaSmiled.org:

1. Quick involvement in a relationship
2. Extreme jealousy
3. Controlling behavior
4. Threats of violence
5. Abrupt mood changes
6. Verbal abuse
7. Breaking objects
8. Use of force during an argument
9. History of past battering

“She just looked at me like, ‘The warning signs were there, I just didn’t see them. They were all there for the entire 10 years,’” Robin shared.

Through the foundation, Robin has also created the Aspire Initiative, a free domestic violence education curriculum for tweens, teens and adults, to reduce the level of intimate relationship violence in the United States. She has also created the Aspire News App, which has been recognized on Capitol Hill and on the floor of the United Nations as one of the most meaningful apps in the fight against domestic violence.

Watch the video above as Robin discusses the list, as a precautionary tale with Jordan and Kyle, an engaged couple who came to Dr. Phil to discuss problems in their own relationship.

Help Secure a Brighter Future For Our Nation’s Foster Children

Every year, over a quarter of a million children are placed in foster care because of abuse or neglect. Many end up on the street when they turn 18, and thousands become pregnant, incarcerated or chronically homeless.

In honor of National Foster Care month, Dr. Phil and Robin have joined forces with the National Foster Youth Institute to help build a movement across the country to transform the current system into a foundation of hope for families in crisis.

“You can donate to build and sustain a network of advocates in all 435 congressional districts,” Robin says.

Dr. Phil adds, “Your gift will help secure a brighter future for our nation’s foster children.”
