MADD President: Ethan Couch Release Is 'Grave Injustice' For Victims
Couch, now 20, was sentenced to two years in Tarrant County jail after violating his probation conditions for a 2013 fatal drunk driving accident that killed four people and injured several others.
Now that Couch has served his time, he'll have the chance to complete his probation.
Couch's case made worldwide headlines because his legal team argued that he was not at fault for drunk driving in June 2013 because his privileged background ruined him.
On June 15, 2013, the then-16-year-old was driving drunk and under the influence of marijuana and Valium when he slammed into a group of people who had stopped to help a disabled driver along Burleson-Retta Road in south Tarrant County, Texas. Couch served almost 2 years for violating his probation.
In late 2015, a social media video surfaced of Couch partying, which was a violation of his probation, and he and his mother, Tonya Couch, fled to Mexico to avoid trouble, further proving that he really was raised by a bad family.
In 2015, Couch was caught on camera drinking at a party. Couch and his mother Tonya, took off for Mexico. They were arrested in the resort of Puerto Vallarta after a manhunt.
Couch's attorneys, Scott Brown and Reagan Wynn, issued a statement Monday saying Couch has always been sorry for what he did.
No time has been set for his release, but the sheriff's office for the county, which includes Fort Worth, begins processing inmates at 8 a.m. (1300 GMT), office spokesman David McClelland said. Last week, her bond in the case was revoked after she failed a required urine test, but court documents don't specify the substance the urinalysis revealed.
She was booked into the same jail as her son, only days before he was released.
"The 720 days Ethan Couch served for his crimes shows that drunk driving homicides still aren't treated as the violent crimes that they are", the organization said in a statement.
