A rich teenager in Texas who killed four people while driving under the influence of drugs and drink got a slap on the wrist after his lawyers argued he was the victim of “affluenza.”
Ethan Couch received 10 years probation — rather than the possible 20-year jail term he faced as a result of his irresponsible actions.
His lawyers said the 16-year-old had been so spoiled by his doting and affluent parents he had no idea of the consequence of his actions or the concept of taking responsibility for what he did. (AP Photo/The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Paul Moseley)
