Legal Writ Keeps Affluenza Teen and Mom in Mexico

When Couch arrived in Dallas, he was cooperative and compliant with all demands by officials. He will be medically screened and then assigned to a housing unit at the Tarrant County Juvenile Detention Center.

Although Couch is 18 now and should be locked up in an adult facility, he was 16 at the time of his crime and was tried as a juvenile. He will go before a Tarrant County judge to determine if he will be moved to an adult court.

The Drunk Driving Saga of Ethan Couch

There are many people hoping to see his case get sent to an adult court. Mothers Against Drunk Driving has been attending his hearings, drawing attention to his mistakes, “Couch’s actions are not that of a child, and we will continue our petition…to move Couch’s case from juvenile to adult court.”



Couch was sentenced to 10 years of probation but no jail time after arguing that his parents sheltered him so much that he didn’t understand the consequences of his actions. State officials and many others want to see that changed, especially after he ran away and left the country to hide out.

Couch may now be trying to claim that he had no choice and was made to leave the country by his mother with his legal team citing there was no proof that Couch “voluntarily absented himself” from his court responsibilities.
