Conroe, July 16 – After The Golden Hammer ran a story about Terri Jaggers last with with Ms. Jaggers photograph posing on some very fancy automobile, numerous readers of this newspaper asked what type of car Jaggers enjoyed. Several readers began to refer to the vehicle as “The Car.”
Jaggers pled guilty to a Third-Degree Felony of Misapplication of Fiduciary Funds and a Class A Misdemeanor for Theft on June 25, 2019. Her signed confession follows.
As for The Car, it turns out that Jaggers and her husband, adoption attorney Patrick Jaggers, who received many dozens of referrals from Jaggers and the organizations which she headed, have had seventeen (17) vehicles registered at their home in Bentwater since they moved into the 5,189 square foot palatial residence – with 4.5 bathrooms – in 2004.
During the same time period, the Jaggers have also listed their home address as the corporate headquarters for the following businesses listed with the Secretary of State of Texas: Law Office Of Jaggers Guevara PC, Cheer Live Inc., Cheerspin Inc., Texas State Foster Parents Inc., Orphan Care Solutions Of Texas Inc., Hopes Path, Smith And Jaggers PC, Fostering Innovations Inc., and Jaggers Law Firm PC.
Jaggers herself was, of course, Mrs. USA at one point.
One of the automobiles registered to the Jaggers is a red Saturn convertible the license plate of which reads “MRSUSA.”
The gray and black car on which Jaggers relaxed one sunny afternoon is none other than an Audi R8Q, the current MSRP for which is $169,900. Audi describes the R8Q as follows: “It is the latest mean machine from the four-ringed Bavarian stable, and is set to excite and exhilarate.”
The Montgomery County Commissioners Court voted unanimously to authorize Montgomery County Attorney B.D. Griffin to file suit against former Montgomery County Child Welfare Board/CPS President Terri Jaggers, her husband attorney Pat Jaggers, and others to recover funds stolen from orphans, children in foster care, and nonprofit organizations established to benefit those children.
