Ethan Couch and the case of “Affluenza.”
Couch hosted a party at his parents’ house, and then took seven friends for a ride around town in his pickup truck. After significantly exceeding the speed limit, Couch hit a car that was parked on the side of the road. The other car had broken down, and its owner, Breanna Mitchell, was killed. Two neighbors (Shelby and Hollie Boyles) and minister Brian Jennings had come outside to help Mitchell with her car troubles, and they were also killed.
