Ethan Couch is in Tarrant County’s maximum-security Lon Evans Correctional Facility, and he’ll probably remain there at least until his 19th birthday next month.
A juvenile court judge gave Couch a 10-year probated sentence after a 2013 drunken-driving wreck that killed four people. He was jailed and his case was transferred to adult court last month after he and his mother fled to Mexico. He can expect new probation conditions and perhaps a jail sentence.
Nothing will change the horrible outcome of Couch’s drunken driving. Can he ever redeem himself in the public eye?
