(NEWSER) – Tonya Couch, mom to "affluenza" teen Ethan Couch, will likely be released from jail in Fort Worth, Texas, on Tuesday after posting bond.
A Tarrant County judge reduced her bond from $1 million to $75,000 on Monday after hearing that the government has frozen Couch's bank account, leaving her essentially broke, reports NBC 5. Her 29-year-old son Steven McWilliams testified that Couch's account balance read "-$99 billion." When asked who was paying Couch's legal bills, McWilliams answered "me, so far," per NBC News.
Couch will be fitted with an ankle monitor and not be allowed to leave the home of McWilliams and his family, reports CNN. Her doctor and lawyer are allowed to visit.
