[Ethan Couch – Teen Kills 4, Gets Probation Due To Affluenza]
In Fort Worth, Texas a teenage was just given probation for driving drunk and killing four people.
Prosecutors were looking for a lengthy jail sentence after 16-year-old Ethan Couch got behind the wheel of a pick up truck with a 0.24 blood alcohol, three times the legal limit and Valium in his blood stream and hit four pedestrians, killing them, including a mother and her daughter.
But instead Couch got probation because his lawyer basically argued that Couch was suffering from “Affluenza” at the time.
In other words, he was too rich and too privileged to know the difference between right and wrong.
Judge Jean Boyd, is the judge who sentenced Ethan Couch to 10 years probation.
Prosecutors were pushing for 20 years in jail.

His defense attorneys argued that the 16 year old parents are to blame for his behavior and he was a product of wealth and privileged.
Couch’s defense lawyers said, Couch had never been punished in the past for his bad behavior including one time being caught with a past out undressed 14-year-old girl in his truck. And since he has never been punished and has always gotten what he wanted a psychologist testified that Couch was in need of therapy for killing 4 people with his truck instead of a need of jail time.
The Judge agreed and Couch is headed for a 1/2 million dollar counselling centre.
