Ethan Couch killed four people while driving drunk — before a judge spared him jail time because he was too rich to know right from wrong!
Now the spoiled teen is laughing at the law and skipping his parole hearings!
Texas police are looking for the rich kid — and his mom — who have both disappeared while Ethan’s parole officer tries to do his job!
Ethan, then 16 years old, was slapped on the wrist with just 10 years of probation after he admitted to driving drunk in a DUI crash that killed four people and injured nine more in June 2013.
He was going 70 in a 40 MPH zone, had a blood alcohol content three times that of the adult limit in Texas, and also tested positive for Valium.
But that didn’t stop Judge Jean Hudson Boyd from agreeing with Ethan’s defense attorneys that the teen suffered from “affluenza” — meaning that his rich divorced parents had spoiled him to the point that Ethan couldn’t understand the concept of consequences.
It looks like Ethan hasn’t learned a lesson, either!
Ethan’s parole officer has reported that he has been unable to contact Ethan or his mom.
That’s in the wake of a six-second video that was posted on social media earlier this month of young men playing beer pong.
The footage reportedly included Ethan as part of the group — and using drugs or alcohol would violate his probation.
Couch’s attorneys, Regan Wynn and Scott Brown, released a statement:
We have recently learned for [the] last several days the juvenile probation officer has been unable to make contact with Ethan or his mother, with whom he’s been residing. It’s our understanding that the court has issued a directive to apprehend to have Ethan detained because he is out of contact with his probation officer. We do not have any further information concerning this situation.
