'Affluenza' Texan, who killed four driving drunk, to be releasedA Texan who was dubbed the “affluenza teen” is due to be released from jail on Monday after serving nearly two years for killing four people while driving drunk and later fleeing to Mexico with his mother. The case made headlines worldwide after lawyers for Ethan Couch argued that his wealthy upbringing impaired his ability to tell right from wrong. Couch, who is being released a few days before his 21st birthday, will remain under strict probation supervision after he is freed from the Tarrant County Jail, the county sheriff’s office said.
