Woman in Jail, 01/23/68: A KHOU reporter speaks with Ruby Vick at the Harris County Jail. Vick was imprisoned on January 23 on a contempt of court charge for refusing to help law enforcement locate her son, Jerry Ladd Gary. Gary and his daughter, Shelly, had disappeared the previous year after his wife filed for divorce. Vick remained in jail until February 23, when she was released on a $1,000 bond by order of the Texas Supreme Court. The court dismissed Vick's case on March 28.
