Father who lost his wife and daughter weighs in on 'affluenza' sentence

Ethan Couch, the Texas teen who killed four people in a drunk driving crash was just sentenced to probation and rehab. He escaped a prison sentence after his lawyer called an expert witness who argued that Couch never faced any serious consequences for his actions before, and shouldn't now. He called the condition "affluenza." Now that same lawyer is blasting the media for the term "affluenza" going viral. Anderson is Keeping Them Honest.

Anderson discussed Ethan Couch's sentence with Eric Boyles, whose wife and daughter were killed in the crash.

    So ignorance of the law was an acceptable excuse? That has never worked for me so just because someone is coddled and rich it shouldn't work for them.
