In keeping with good Texas justice, I'm not too worried. While we may foot the bill now, I'm pretty sure junior is about to have a pretty lousy life
from here on out.
Call me back in a few years when this kid ends up a drug addict, or complete waste of life because he was not accepted in the business world...or
I can't vouch for the following source (Radar Online
), but here's what they have to say about the parents:
"Fred Couch — who reportedly let Ethan live on his own after his split from Tonya — has had four criminal misdemeanor allegations and 18 traffic
citations (paying for nine of those). He’s been arrested in connection with theft, evading arrest and domestic violence. The latter occurred in
1996, when he was accused of assault against his ex-wife Tonya. Fred, according to court records, “intentionally and knowingly caused bodily injury
to Tonya Couch by striking [the woman] on or about the face with his hands causing Tonya to fall, and by grabbing [the woman] on or about the neck
with his hands, scratching [the woman's] neck.”
He got out of it when Tonya agreed to a sworn affidavit of non-prosecution, making the case go away.
As for Tonya, her biggest legal infraction came ten years ago — and on the road — when she was fined $500 and sentenced to six months of community
supervision in connection with misdemeanor reckless driving, after authorities said she tried to run another driver off the road. Tonya, according to
court docs, “intentionally and knowingly drove a motor vehicle in a willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property.”
So, for what it's worth, we can try to rehabilitate this kid, or we can railroad his life. I'm pretty sure I know which is likelier...
