Can't find a link /thread for Ethan Couch, Affluenza Boy

Affluenza teen Ethan Couch's appeal over four year prison sentence for killing four in drunk car crash is rejected

".....The Texas teenager who famously used an 'affluenza' defense after he killed four people in a drunk driving crash will stay in jail for another two years after a judge denied his appeal.

Ethan Couch, 19, was sentenced to four consecutive terms of 180 days – one for each of the four lives he horrifically snuffed out in a 2013 drunk driving crash - when he appeared in court last month.

Today, Judge Wayne Salvant signed an order reaffirming the probation terms he imposed at that hearing. He also canceled another court date on the matter scheduled for May 16....."At court last month, where Couch faced justice for the first time as an adult, Judge Salvant had told the teen: 'You're not getting out of jail today' before sentencing him to two years behind bars for the 2013 drunk driving crash which killed four and injured nine.

Couch's lawyers spent much of the 90 minute hearing at the Tim Curry Criminal Justice Center in downtown Fort Worth arguing whether the judge had the power to impose such a harsh penalty. ...."

"....Sergio Molina has been confined to a wheelchair since the tragic accident caused by his former friend Couch...."

'Affluenza teen' Ethan Couch's dad is found guilty of impersonating a police officer in an armed argument with his neighbor

"...The father of 'affluenza' teen Ethan Couch has been sentenced to a year of probation after he was found guilty of falsely identifying himself as a police officer in Texas.

Fred Couch, 51, was charged in September 2014 with impersonating a police officer, which is a Class B misdemeanor.

The charge stems from an August 2014 incident in which he was armed with a gun when he went to Keith Capo's doorstep along with a neighbor to talk about a disagreement that took place days earlier, NBC Dallas reported. ..."

"... His son made headlines around the world when he was first given a 10-year probation sentence after killing four people in a drunk driving accident.

The 19-year-old is currently serving a two year sentence in a North Texas jail.

His mother, Tonya Couch, and Fred's ex-wife was charged with hindering the apprehension of a felon and money laundering in connection with his case...."

Mother of 'affluenza teen' Ethan Couch could join her son behind bars after she 'violated her bond by drinking alcohol' as she awaits trial for helping her son flee to Mexico

"....Prosecutors filed a motion on Tuesday in Fort Worth, Texas, seeking to revoke Tonya Couch's bond on charges of money laundering and hindering the apprehension of a felon.

Those charges stem from her 2015 flight to Mexico with son Ethan Couch, 20, who killed four in a 2013 drunk driving crash that his lawyers blamed on 'affluenza', meaning he couldn't tell right from wrong because of his affluent upbringing.

Ethan Couch was sentenced to 10 years probation in that case but is currently behind bars after skipping a probation meeting and fleeing with his mother to Mexico in 2015......"

".... In April, the Texas Supreme Court denied an early release request for Couch, who was 16 when he got behind the wheel of his father's F-150 truck with three times the legal limit for alcohol in his blood.

He smashed into a stationary white Mercedes SUV at 70mph, killing the driver, Breanna Mitchell, along with mother and daughter Holly and Shelby Boyles and pastor Brian Jennings, who were all trying to help Mitchell get her car going.

Ethan Couch's father is also currently on probation, after he was found guilty of falsely impersonating a police officer last year....."
