‘Affluenza’ teen faces US return

So-called ‘affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch and his mother Tonya are expected to be taken back to the U.S. sometime on December 30th.

They were detained in the Mexican city of Puerto Vallarta where they set up shop under a false name.

Couch, who’s now 18, killed four people in a drink-drive crash two years earlier.

He was sentenced to 10 years of drug-and alcohol-free probation when a psychologist successfully argued that he was so spoiled he did know right from wrong.

Couch fled to Mexico because he faces the prospect of jail time for alleged probation violations.

He’s due to appear initially before a juvenile court when he arrives back in the U.S.

His mother’s facing arrest for hindering his apprehension.
