    Harris Co., Texas is the county where Houston is located. There were (and still are) local newspaper articles about people in trouble with the law.

    Your local public library system may subscribe to the database of indexed old newspaper articles (with full-text images of the news articles), Access NewspaperArchives. If you currently hold a library borrower card for the public library, you can check the library web site for the databases the library offers from your home computer. I can get into Access NewspaperArchives by logging into my public library borrower account through the library web site.

    If you don't know how to do that, I recommend you visit your local public library where a reference librarian can give you one-on-one instruction on how to go about that.

    Access NewspaperArchives does include indexed full-text Houston newspaper articles from 1977.
