You don't need to:
His legal defense was that he was spoiled by his parents

Couch didn’t literally get out of jail because he slipped the judge a check. But with 20 years of jail — yes, 20 years — looming as a possible punishment for Couch, his attorney had the brilliant idea of bringing in psychologist Dr. G. Dick Miller to testify on Couch’s behalf. Dr. Miller’s testimony on the stand focused on Couch’s wealth: the teenager, he said, had grown up amid privilege and had often expected his money to get him out of trouble. Therefore, Couch did not have a basic understanding of consequences.

and From WFAA ABC:

Miller said Couch’s parents gave him “freedoms no young person should have.” He called Couch a product of “affluenza,” where his family felt that wealth bought privilege and there was no rational link between behavior and consequences.

He said Couch got whatever he wanted. As an example, Miller said Couch’s parents gave no punishment after police ticketed the then-15-year-old when he was found in a parked pickup with a passed out, undressed, 14-year-old girl.

Disgusting. That judge needs to have their assets frozen and investigated. Did the dad pay the judge off? Families? Who does he know, has to be someone of importance. Reminds me of Boardwalk Empire.

I get busted with marijuana I'm doing 5 years. This scumbag piece of shyt kills 4 people and is free. Must be nice.

So he gets off because he has no understanding of consequences for his actions...

Nice.... Thanks to the judge he still has no understanding of consequences for his actions

If he screws up within the 10 years, the judge could impose jail time on the original crime.

I agree that locking the kid up doesn't do anything really, but in most instances, even if alcohol wasn't a factor, there would be jail time in a case like this.

This kid had a BAC of over .2 That's ridiculous for anyone, let alone a 16 year old kid.

I bet some money changed hands for this sentence. It's shocking. It's disgusting. The judge should step down from the bench after doling out that sentence. It REEKS of corruption.

totally agreed. Got damn this story pisses me off.

How about that. So his next run in with the law he could say the same thing and also use this judge as a reference.

Nah, they'll let him burn the next time. I'm betting his old man pulled a pretty big favor so he won't have another to play. Not to mention the debt he owes to whoever set it all up with the court.

What's ridiculous is the reasoning behind the judges sentence was that the kid had never been punished properly. So I guess letting him off the hook again is the answer?

Thats messed up imo he deserves the death penalty

I feel we are way too reluctant in issuing death sentences in cases like this where guilt is clear.

Sergio Molina remains in a coma


Soliman Mohmand, right, was seriously injured. They were both riding in Couch's truck when the cash occured


there were 2 minorities injured, both were riding with the white killer couch.

'Money always seems to keep (Couch) out of trouble,' Eric Boyles, whose wife and daughter were killed in the June 15 crash, told the Star Telegram after sentencing. 'Ultimately today, I felt that money did prevail. If (he) had been any other youth, I feel like the circumstances would have been different.'
