Teen Drunk Driver With ‘Affluenza’ Is Being Sued For Millions By His Victims

Being sued should be the least of his problems. He better have a really good body guard.
Check it out:

A wealthy Texas teenager who got no jail time for killing four pedestrians while driving drunk still faces three civil lawsuits filed by victims’ family members, NBC’s Dallas affiliate reports.

Many of those family members were outraged when 16-year-old Ethan Couch got probation after a psychologist testified he had “affluenza” — meaning he thought he was immune from punishment because he was rich.

Couch’s family may still be on the hook for millions in related civil litigation, though. (Unlike a criminal case, Couch can’t be sentenced to jail or be found guilty. He could, however, be found liable and have to pay a monetary penalty.)
