FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – The teenager sentenced to probation in a drunk driving crash that killed four people will return to the Moore Juvenile Justice Center in Fort Worth on Wednesday. But what happens during that hearing may not be known. There is concern that the judge in this high-profile case will not allow the public into the courtroom.
Ethan Couch crashed his pickup truck into a crowd of people in June of last year, killing four of them and seriously injuring two more.
Back in December, Judge Jean Boyd sentenced Ethan Couch to 10 years probation. That sentence stirred up a lot of controversy. Now, on Wednesday, Couch is scheduled to learn the conditions of his probation sentence.
But on Tuesday, Judge Boyd denied a request by attorneys from CBS 11 News and several other local news outlets. The plea asked that the media agencies be given a hearing in the event of any request to close future proceedings regarding Couch. There is no word about whether or not the judge will close her courtroom to the public for Wednesday’s hearing.
