The Clara Harris Murder Case Houston Texas

Though David Harris’ parents stood by her side in the Criminal Murder Trial, Clara Harris showed little respect for his parents after the jury returned its verdict. Immediately her murder conviction, Clara Harris welched on her promise to give the grandparents custody of the two small children while she served her prison sentence. Instead, she decided to give them to the neighbors. Gerald and Mildred, loving grandparents, who were well respected people in their church, and community were stunned. Then, she refused to deal fairly with the family on the proceeds of her large estate, instead claiming her entitlement to her dead husband’s money, leaving little for her children. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Gerald and Mildred Harris felt that she had run over the family long enough and turned to Joe Stephens because of his reputation for being able to talk to juries. In this case involving unspeakable domestic violence, Joe Stephens proved that Clara Harris murdered her husband in cold blood. Unbelievably, Clara Harris’ lawyer continued to deny she had intended to run over him despite the video footage that most people around the world had viewed. After Clara Harris took the Fifth Amendment 27 times while on the witness stand, the jury found her claims incredulous. The jury found that Clara Harris must pay her dead husband’s parents $3.75 million for the emotional torment, mental anguish, and loss of companionship they suffered due to her conduct. After verdict, the case settled for a confidential amount.
