The ‘affluenza’ teen and his mother aren’t coming back to the US willingly. Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson said today that Ethan Couch and his mother have filed a ‘legal writ’ to remain in Mexico which a judge has granted. Couch and his mother were arrested on Monday night in Mexico a few weeks after disappearing from North Texas.
Anderson says he’s not surprised the pair are putting up a legal fight, and then asked, ‘Will it never end?’
Ethan Couch was given probation in 2013 after a drunk driving crash left four people dead. Couch is eligible for ten years in prison if a judge determines he violated his probation.
