Poor little rich boy Ethan Couch is back in the news again.
You may recall the horrible case last year in which the boy from a wealthy family was prosecuted for drunkenly mowing down and killing pedestrians while flinging two of the passengers from his truck. Using the “affluenza” defense, it was said that young Ethan could not be sent to jail for his actions because he was just too darned rich to be punished. An attempt a couple of months later to prosecute him for a related crime reaped no better results, and punishment that included time behind bars was still not forthcoming.
Ethan was sentenced to rehab and the public was assured that his parents would be footing the bill for the swanky facility. (Here’s an article about the original choice of facilities – apparently this is no longer his rehab destination.)
