Ethan Couch is once again in the news and not for a good reason. Should we be surprised that he is in trouble again? I think not. Here is a young man who got drunk got behind the wheel and killed four people. In his defense his lawyer claimed that he was too rich to know right from wrong. The judge deemed him too rich to serve prison time and gave him a slap on the wrist – ten years probation. His punishment was to banish him to a luxury treatment center where he could continue to live a life of affluence and continue to not know right from wrong. The only thing Ethan Couch came away learning from this incident was that if you are rich enough you can get away with just about anything. Are we now surprised that he would continue along the same road that got him into trouble the first place? Sadly the punishment by law for people who drink and drive was not applied to Ethan Couch.
