Most can't comply with the terms of probation.

His victims' fathers need to wait a couple of years for the attention to die down and then make him disappear Dexter- style. There is no justice from "the system" in these types of horrific crimes when the defendant is a teenager. The juvenile system is a joke and even if you get them prosecuted as adults, they still get a slap on the wrist compared to what an actual adult would get.

So what exactly is it about this young white male coming from a wealthy home that allows him to be "rehabilitated" by the justice system without jail time, when that same justice system is sending every other young male, mostly of color, and without wealth, to jail? The whole situation stinks.

The juvenile justice system doesn't send any juveniles to jail, of color or otherwise, unless they're completely out of control and have committed multiple heinous offenses. it's a complete and total joke.

Heard about this from my GF. She asked me if i heard about the "Affluenza Defense," no lie. Apparently spoiled rotten crap kids are created by rich parents and now we got a name for it. it's sad, check it out... I'm surprised the Pharmaceutical companies don't have a new pill yet or the Medical society havent created a new disease.......

I agree, the juvenile system is a joke, but killing 4 people in a DWI and injuring several others would be jail time for anyone else, even in Texas where the system is soft on DWIs.

Saw this on the news tonight. Talk about a slap in the face to the LEO's who investigated the case, not to mention the victims parents.

What a crock of ****. I didn't know that being "emotionally flat" as described by the physiologist, was a defense to getting behind the wheel while drunk.

Read it last night, guess there is a defense for everything. This guy better be careful wherever he goes because there just might be some Texas justice dispensed out there.

This is horrible and this POS juvenile should be in a lockup. Wow,kill four and injure nine and you get nothing. America is a in a very bad place. In Texas can a Judge be re-called or removed from the bench? I do not know how this POS judge can sleep at night. This kid is a loser and I wish only bad things for him. It does prove one thing. When you are rich you buy your way out of anything.

But, News 8 discovered the same judge sent a 14-year-old black boy to prison in March 2012 for killing one person with a powerful punch to the ground in 2011.

The 16-year-old pleaded guilty last week to four counts of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault causing serious bodily injury.

Killed were Breanna Mitchell of Lillian, whose car broke down the night of June 15; Hollie and Shelby Boyles, who lived nearby and had come outside to help Mitchell; and Burleson youth minister Brian Jennings, a passer-by who had also stopped to help.

The teen admitted to being drunk when he lost control of his pickup. He was speeding, had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit, plus traces of Valium in his system.

Richard Alpert, a Tarrant County assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case with Riley Shaw, said they were very disappointed with the verdict. In his closing statement, Alpert said that if the teen continues to be insulated by his family’s wealth, he would be involved in another tragedy in the future.

“There can be no doubt that he will be in another courthouse one day blaming the lenient treatment he received here,” Alpert said.
It's good to be rich.

The difference between this case and that case is as different as black and white.

The reality show is coming together as we speak: Big Brother celebrity edition, starring George Zimmerman, Casey Anthony, this kid, and the woman who pushed her husband off the cliff. Cameo by OJ Simpson and Jodi Arias...

There is a Council of Judicial Conduct but they don't do much except in pretty egregious cases like felony crimes or something totally out there.

As for the Defense of Affluenza... what can you say, it is the best justice money can buy.

Where the kid who killed four in a DUI crash will spend his time.

Horseback riding, massages and cooking lessons: Inside the luxury $450k per year rehab center that 'affluenza' teen will attend as punishment for killing four in DUI.


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ch-attend.html


Also, the D.A. has poss. found a way to get some jail time for the offender.
