‘Affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch moved from maximum security

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – A teenager who used an “affluenza” defense in a 2013 fatal drunken-driving wreck has been moved from the maximum security unit at the Texas jail where he’s serving a nearly two-year term.

Ethan Couch was transferred Tuesday from isolation to a single-cell unit at the Tarrant County jail.
Sheriff Dee Anderson says Couch still spends 23 hours a day in his cell, but that he now has access to a gymnasium and a day room with a TV.

Last week, a judge reaffirmed probation terms imposed on Couch in April when he turned 19 and his case moved to adult court. v

Couch and his mother fled to Mexico last year. She’s charged with hindering apprehension.
