"affluenza"

If you have any respect for the 'laws' or believe in 'justice' - please read the below
................................................................................................
A Texas teen who avoided prison over a fatal drink-driving crash by claiming
he suffered from "affluenza" has been sentenced to nearly two years in jail.

In 2013, Ethan Couch killed four people when he rammed his truck into a crowd,
but he avoided prison.

On Wednesday, the 19-year-old was ordered to serve four consecutive 180-day jail sentences -
one for each of his victims.

He broke his probation when he fled to Mexico in December.

It is thought he took flight because a video emerged of him at a house party, and any evidence
he had been drinking alcohol might have seen him put behind bars.

A psychologist at his original trial argued that his privileged upbringing meant his parents
had not taught the then 16-year-old a sense of responsibility.


The expert called the condition "affluenza", a term not recognised by the American Psychiatric Association.

Couch was sentenced to 10 years' probation and a stint in a rehabilitation centre.
That sentence was roundly criticised at the time as too lenient.
