I have a better compromise, one that's frequently suggested in the comments section of your local newspaper whenever a poor brown teenager commits a crime: Put his parents in jail for refusing to do their job. At least the families of his four victims will be able to sue the pants off this spoiled brat's family:
A spoiled Texas teen who killed four in a drunken driving accident dodged prison and was sentenced to probation instead after defense lawyers argued his wealthy parents never taught him right from wrong.
Ethan Couch, 16, was facing 20 years behind bars for the horrific June wreck, but instead walked out of a Fort Worth courtroom Tuesday with 10 years' probation.
The rich brat's legal team said he needed counseling, not hard time, and proposed sending him to a posh Southern California treatment facility that would cost his family $500,000 a year.
You guessed it: He got ten years probation and will enter a rehab center for the wealthy. Bet he learns his lesson now, huh?
