(Fort Worth, TX) – The 20-year-old man who invoked the “affluenza” defense after a deadly crash is now free. Ethan Couch was released from a jail near Dallas today after serving two years for a revoked probation.
Couch was 16 when he struck and killed four people in June of 2013, and is now just over a week away from his 21st birthday. A psychologist testified during his manslaughter trial that Couch’s irresponsibility was the result of his family’s wealth, calling it “affluenza.” Tonya Couch, Ethan’s mother, is awaiting trial on charges of hindering apprehension of a felon and money laundering after fleeing to Mexico with her son in 2015.
(SL) – It was a scene out of a movie. Dozens of police officers camped outside of Pop/R&B star Chris Brown’s mansion during a day long standoff in which some media outlets reported that the singer had ‘barricaded’ himself inside.
But really he was just waiting on his attorney Mark Geragos to arrive and for LAPD to issue a warrant. It all stemmed from a fraudulent ex-beauty queen who claimed to be at Brown’s house on business but had somehow found herself in his hot tub and around some jewelry that she was warned not to touch….and that’s where the drama ensued.
Baylee Curran who was stripped of her Miss California (Regional) title (after nude photos surfaced) and has yet to return her sash and crown to pageant officials who claim they’ve requested the items be returned several times, is also wanted in NY after she stole a girl’s $1000 LV purse and the contents inside which included cash and a wallet. Reportedly, after falsely accusing a few friends of infractions one that resulted in a restraining order, some of them are speaking out about Baylee’s ability to stretch the truth which appears to be what happened with Chris Brown.
Baylee claims that she became curious about a diamond necklace that was being presented among the group at Brown’s mansion and after an associate of Chris’ warned her not to touch the jewelry Chris ordered her to leave the house and even pointed a gun at her head to push the seriousness of her desired departure.
But in today’s world of technology it looks like a text message might clear Chris’ name.
Furthermore, Browns Attorney told ABC News: “There was a search that was done.
“They went in, and said they had a description of the piece of jewelry.
