The so-called affluenza teen who once claimed his parents' wealth prevented him from distinguishing between right and wrong was released from a Texas jail Monday after a two-year sentence related to a drunk-driving crash that killed four people.
Couch was 16 in June 2013 when he struck and killed four pedestrians. There, he was sentenced to four consecutive terms of 180 days in jail (one term for each of the 2013 vehicle crash victims) equaling two years in jail, as KDFW-TV (Dallas) reported at the time. His attorney's had argued that a wealthy, privileged upbringing had made it impossible for couch to understand that his actions had consequences.
Couch is responsible for killing four people and injuring nine others in a horrific drunk driving accident in 2013, when he was a juvenile. Couch had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit on the night of the crash. "We'll continue to watch him because we have a partnership with Tarrant County to make sure that he at least adheres to all his rules of probation when he does get out on Monday", said Sheehey-Church.
Following legal maneuvering and attempts to evade being brought back to the States, Couch was eventually sent back to Texas. The fiasco resulted in Couch and his mother taking off for Mexico, staying on the run for weeks, and finally captured in December 2015 after using a cellphone to order Domino's pizza.
"From the beginning, [Couch] has admitted his conduct, accepted responsibility for his actions, and felt true remorse for the awful consequences of those actions", Couch's lawyers Scott Brown and Reagan Wynn, wrote in a statement.

But his probation was revoked in 2016 after he attended a party where alcohol was served.
