Televangelist's wife is cleared

August 15, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

The wife of Houston televangelist Joel Osteen thanked God after a jury decided that she did not assault a flight attendant during an alleged tirade over a stain on her first-class seat in December 2005.

Jurors rejected Continental Airlines attendant Sharon Brown's claims that Victoria Osteen threw her against a door and elbowed her.

Osteen, who testified that the alleged assault did not happen, cried when she heard the jury's verdict. She hugged her attorneys and supporters, saying, "Thank you, God," and, "Praise God."
