Affluenza Teen Enters Adult Court

Ethan Couch, known popularly as the “Affluenza teen,” has made his first appearance in an adult court. Couch turned 19 on Monday and his intoxication manslaughter convictions were moved out of the juvenile justice system, which favors the defendant, and into the court of Judge Wayne Salvant, who immediately imposed new conditions on the teen from suburban Fort Worth. Couch must abstain from illegal drugs and alcohol and he isn’t allowed to drive. But the harshest condition is the 180 days in county jail he’s been given for each of the four counts against him. That’s 720 days. ABC’s Jim Ryan will update the story.
