Let’s take a look here.
So Ethan Couch, right????
People are dead because of him.
A week after an arrest warrant was issued for Ethan Couch — more commonly known as the “affluenza teen” — for violating his probation, the 18-year-old remains on the lam.
Authorities have not yet pinpointed the location of Couch, who two years ago killed four people during a drunken driving crash, but they suspect his mother is helping to hide him.
On Monday, the Tarrant County, Texas, sheriff’s office announced that Tonya Couch has been listed as a missing person on nationwide databases and may be accompanying her fugitive son.
“We believe she is helping or assisting him but we can’t even prove they are together at this time,” said Sheriff Dee Anderson.
The sheriff’s office released photos of Tonya Couch and a black Ford F-150 pickup truck that the pair might be using.
A judge’s decision to give Ethan Couch probation instead of jail time was controversial at the time, and more so after a video this month appeared to show the teen playing a drinking game at a party.
District Attorney Sharen Wilson said it “certainly looks like him” in the video, but added that without further investigation, the video alone did not prove he violated his probation.
But leaving the county and not meeting his probation officer are violations, she said.
When Ethan Couch is apprehended, he could be sent to juvenile detention until he turns 19, in April. But Wilson says she wants to move Couch’s case to an adult court, where he could face a longer jail sentence.
