Affluenza – A Dui Defense
A 16-year-old boy in Keller, Texas used a defense of Affluenza to keep himself out of jail after drinking three times the legal limit and causing a crash that killed four people.
Ethan Couch comes from a wealthy family that did not attach consequences to actions.
After crashing his Ford F-150 into a woman with a broken down car, killing her and 3 others, he pled guilty to assault by intoxication causing bodily injury (2 counts) and manslaughter by intoxication (4 counts).
The defense of Affluenza yielded no jail time and 10 years probation for young Couch. He was not released to his parents, but to a rehabilitation center.
