Ethan Anthony Couch born April 11, is an American man who at age 16 killed four people while driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs on June 15, , in Burleson, Texas. He was intoxicated, driving on a restricted license and speeding in a residential area when he lost control, colliding with a group of people assisting another driver with a disabled SUV. Four people were killed in the collision and a total of nine people were injured. Couch was indicted on four counts of intoxication manslaughter for recklessly driving under the influence. In December , Judge Jean Hudson Boyd sentenced Couch to ten years of probation and subsequently ordered him to therapy at a long-term in-patient facility,  after his attorneys argued that the teen had " affluenza " and needed rehabilitation instead of prison, saying that he didn't know boundaries because his rich parents didn't give him any.
