I know this is a few days old, but I didn't see anything posted here.
"A 16-year-old avoided spending time in prison for killing four people in a car accident in June after the judge bought his lawyers' argument that he was the victim of wealth.
CBSDFW reports that Ethan Couch was sentenced in a Fort Worth, Tex. juvenile court to 10 years probation for the drunk driving crash that ended the lives of youth pastor, Brian Jennings; Hollie and Shelby Boyles; and Breanna Mitchell.
Prosecutors asked that Couch serve 20 years in prison. His blood alcohol level was .24, three times the legal limit for an adult."
I gotta say this is f*cking infuriating to me.
First off: Ten years? Probation? Bullsh*t. He ended the lives of 4 people and he won't spend a day behind bars.
And "affluenza"? They really bought into that nonsense? What has this justice system come to?
