For the very first time we’re hearing what happened one year ago, this week, when a group of teenagers left a party and piled into Ethan Couch’s pickup truck. It’s a firsthand account by a teenager who was riding in the bed of the truck.
A judge has ordered attorneys for the North Texas teenager who killed four people in a deadly wreck to turn over the records of the psychologist who claimed the teen suffered from “affluenza.”
He popularized the word “affluenza” during the notorious case of a 16-year-old who admitted he was drunk when he crashed his truck and killed four people.
Attorneys for a boy injured by a 16-year-old driver who killed four people in a drunken wreck want to hear from the psychologist who said that the teenager had “affluenza.”
The family of a North Texas teenager who killed four people and injured 12 in a drunken-driving wreck has reached a settlement of more than $2 million with the family of a teenage boy left disabled.
The parents of the teen who drove drunk and caused a crash that killed four people last summer will pay only a small percentage for his rehabilitation treatment.
A North Texas family says they are not settling with Ethan Couch’s family. In fact, they want a jury to hear their lawsuit. The family says their young son is still traumatized and dealing with the impact of the deadly crash that happened last summer.
Prosecutors said Monday that a North Texas teen’s probation sentence for a drunken wreck that killed four pedestrians frustrates them, too, but they haven’t found a way to seek a stiffer sentence.
