Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Ethan Couch remains in custody in an immigration detention center in Mexico City, after almost a month on the run from law enforcement. The so-called "affluenza" teen and his mom were apprehended in Puerto Vallarta last week, apparently hiding out following a possible probation violation.
Couch was 16 when he struck and killed four pedestrians while driving drunk in Ft. Worth, Texas in 2013. He managed to get just probation and rehab after a defense expert testified Couch suffered from "affluenza," meaning he had been too coddled to be held responsible for his crime.
So why is he still in Mexico, and not back in the United States? And could his attempted escape to Mexico work?
