US 'affluenza teen' released from jail

The Texas man known for his "affluenza" defense when he was given probation for killing four people in a 2013 drunken-driving crash was released on Monday after serving two years for violating his probation.

Now that Couch has served his time, he'll have the chance to complete his probation.

During his trial and sentencing, Couch became the subject of worldwide headlines after a psychologist testified that he had "affluenza" - a portmanteau of the words "affluence" and "influenza". His attorneys said Couch will serve the remaining six years of his sentence under community supervision, which Couch's case includes a number of sanctions and provisions.

After Couch was filmed drinking alcohol at a party in 2015 - a violation of the terms of his probation - he and his mother fled to Mexico. He pleaded guilty after he was found to have three times the legal alcohol limit in his system. His lawyer said that his wealth impaired his ability to gauge what was right and wrong, and the court psychologist said he suffered from a case of "affluenza".

In April 2016, Dee Anderson, Tarrant County's sheriff, said Mr. Couch had created "zero issues" since beginning his jail stint that January. An global search for the pair ensued but it ended when authorities tracked them down to a "resort town in Puerto Vallarta after they used a cellphone to order a pizza from Domino's", according to The Dallas Morning News. Terms for his probation included a 9 p.m. curfew.

"From the beginning, [Couch] has admitted his conduct, accepted responsibility for his actions, and felt true remorse for the bad consequences of those actions", Couch's lawyers Scott Brown and Reagan Wynn, wrote in a statement. The video was posted on social media and he and his mother fled to Mexico.

Ethan Couch was extradited back to the US and later sentenced to 720 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation.

Tonya Couch will go to trial in May over charges of obstructing the apprehension of a felon as well as money laundering, according to The Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Couch originally skirted jail amid public outrage in 2014, when a judge instead ordered him to attend Newport Academy - later dubbed "Afluenza Anonymous" in a feature for Bloomberg Businessweek - an upscale California rehabilitation facility to be paid for by his parents.
