Karr's Family Hires Actor-Author To Help Shop For A Lawyer

Maybe John Karr will get his "dream team" after all.

His father and brother are hoping to get a big-name lawyer to defend the suspect in the JonBenet Ramsey case. So they've hired an actor-turned-author to help them find one.

Larry Garrison, who's based in Los Angeles, says he's already secured the movie and book rights for the Karr family's story. Garrison says he hasn't gotten a cent -- only a promise of a percentage to come from any profit. And he says the Karr family wants the money to go to Karr's defense, and a college fund for his kids.
