Poor Rich Kid Spared Jail

by duncanr

get out of jail cardSixteen-year-old Ethan Couch admitted to four counts of manslaughter after he and seven other boys stole alcohol from Walmart, piled into his car and struck and killed four pedestrians while going 70 miles per hour in a 40 zone. One of his passengers remains in the hospital with severe brain damage, and nine other bystanders were also injured” – ( http://tinyurl.com/mwqx99z )

Facing a possible 20 yr prison sentence, the teen was . . . instead sentenced to 10 yr probation after the judge accepted the defence argument that the kid was a victim of ‘Affluenza” – his rich parents had brought him up to believe that wealthy folk can get away with anything

(if the kid ever doubted his parent’s teaching that those with money don’t have to face the same consequences of their actions as do poor people, the lenient sentence handed down to him by the judge in this case will convince him that they spoke only the truth !)
