Dec. 20: U.S. Marshal's Service Believes 'Affluenza' Teen Is Getting Help Escaping 2:31
Couch admitted to the 2013 crash but did not get any jail time, thanks in part to an unusual defense strategy: A psychologist who testified on the wealthy teen's behalf said Couch was afflicted with "affluenza," which made him unable to distinguish right from wrong due to his privileged upbringing.
Affluenza is not recognized by the American Psychiatric Association as an official diagnosis.
At the time of the crash, Couch was 16 and had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit. He received 10 years of probation and orders to go to a rehab center.
