Kate Gosselin's brother-in-law arrested; pleads guilty to disorderly conduct

Kendra Wilber, Kate Gosselin’s sister, made headlines last week when she spoke out about the reality TV family for the first time. However, now media reports are surfacing that suggest that Kate’s brother-in-law was arrested in the summer of 2013 for criminal attempt at theft.

Jeffrey Michael Wilber, 44, Kendra’s husband, was arrested on May 29, 2013, according to the Lititz Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania and charged after allegedly digging through a homeowner’s personal belongings while at the residence to complete a drywall job.

Wilber, owner of J M Wilber Drywall, was allegedly in the home on the 200 block of South Spruce Street and was “seen on surveillance camera…going in and out of rooms where no work was being done, rummaging through dresser drawers and looking in closets and under beds.”

The case was sent to Judge Edward Tobin of the Pennsylvania Magisterial District Court and the Criminal Attempt of Theft charge was dismissed on June 7, 2013. Wilber, however, pleaded guilty to “Disorderly Conduct Obscene Lang/Gest.” The case is now closed.

Kendra, Wilber’s wife and Kate’s sister, spoke out for the first time last week, revealing that she hasn’t seen her eight nieces or nephews or sister in over six years.

“Kate does not speak to her family at all. It is very painful…the last time we saw and spoke with her, it was in our church parking lot. That was years ago. I have lost track of time,” Kendra said. “I guess we weren’t totally on board with what was going on with the kids. I guess we weren’t excited enough for her and were concerned about her family.”

Kate has allegedly cut off all ties from her family, including her own parents, after her TV series, “Jon & Kate Plus 8,” catapulted her and Jon, her ex-husband, into fame.

Kendra states, “I guess we have our own life and she wants a big life and we don’t fit in. We are just normal everyday people and she doesn’t want us to be part of her life.”
