Quote:
An affluent Texan teenager and his mother wanted in the United States have filed an injunction to delay their extradition from Mexico, and will not be leaving on Wednesday, said Ricardo Vera, a Mexican migration official in the state of Jalisco.

U.S. media said the efforts of Tonya and Ethan Couch to delay extradition could hold up their deportation by two weeks or more, but Vera said that was "speculation".


If you're not familiar with Ethan Couch, he is the dufus kid who stole his Dad's beer, got completely wasted, stole a truck and rammed into 4 people on the side of the road, killing all of them. He received probation because the prosecutor successfully argued that he was too spoiled to understand the ramifications of his actions.

Last month he was filmed at a beer pong party which was a probation violation; he and his mother headed to Mexico.

The way things go for this kid, I would not be surprised if he is allowed to live out his life with his Mom in Mexico.

Texas policemen have a long memory and they will be waiting for him.

I'm hoping he'll end up with a lengthy prison sentence.

Just imagine the prison where he is at. Just by skipping probation was a big no-no . When Ethan skipped his meeting his probation made him an automatic felon and fugitive. The Texas authorities can charge his mother with aiding a felon.


Well See you at the other side of 2016. I will be in Reno at a party. I just hope it does not snow.

I think one of the news sources did mention his mother was already brought back to the U.S. She should do some hard time also, and be stripped of her assets to give out to families of the victims. Have fun in Reno, and I hate snow too.

I am unable to understand why he could not accept that he was very lucky to have avoided jail time for causing death by drunken driving, he should have done exactly what his probation officer told him to do and refrain from whatever the probation officer told him not to do. It was not as if someone forced him to attend the beer bond party at gunpoint, if he was dragged at gunpoint to a beer bong party then I am sure his probation officer and the police would have been interesed.

I think he should have been given a lengthy jail term for the drunken driving, I think that he should have been cast down into prison. There he might have been able to learn the error of his ways.

Two people I'd have wished were kidnapped and ultimately shot and hung from overpasses.

There have been way too many upstanding US citizens who've been kidnapped and held for ransom in Mexico. These two scumbags deserved a lot worse.

There will never be an excuse for drunk driving. The judge who erred will get what's coming to him/her and so will the mother and son, so I'm not the least bit worried.

Good, lock him up and melt down the key, drunk driving is not acceptable under any circumstance for exactly this reason, how hard is it to just call a cab or get a ride from a freind, just don't f*cking drive if you've had a drink

Kid was 16 at the time of the DUI, only eligible for juvenile prosecution. Probation is often given to first offenders and youths - depending on the color of their skin, of course.

Now that he's skipped the country, well he did THAT as an adult.

I am just crying an ocean of tears for this kid and his "Carrot Top" mommy. All she was doing was trying to protect a loved one, and now she's going to the big house.

What's this - a thimble to hold all the tears I am crying? Too big. Pass me a kernel of barley instead.

I actually occasionally have similar thoughts when a criminal suspect flees to another country and we try to extradite them back; why not just yank their passport and let the other country keep them? It's gotta be cheaper than extradition, trial, and incarceration.
