Tonya Couch Ethan Couch

The mother of Ethan Couch, the ‘affluenza’ teen who killed four people while drunk driving, bonded out of a Texas jail on Tuesday. Tonya Couch walked out of the Tarrant County jail Tuesday morning after after a judge reduced her bail from $1 million to just $75,000.

Texas State District Judge Wayne Salvant said Couch’s charge — hindering the apprehension of a fugitive — wasn’t serious enough to warrant such a high bail.

Couch was held overnight in jail so she could be fitted with a GPS monitor. She is confined to her home except to visit her doctor.

Couch and Ethan, 18, fled to Mexico after he violated his court-ordered probation. They were captured in Puerto Vallarta while ordering pizza.

Tonya Couch was extradited to the United States but Ethan Couch was granted a stay by a Mexican judge.

His case could be tied up in Mexican courts for months while he fights extradition.

Prosecutors urged the judge to reconsider releasing Tonya Couch, saying she “showed a willingness to disregard rules by helping her son flee the terms of his probation.”

But Salvant dismissed their concerns.

“We’re talking about a case that the punishment range is 2 to 10 years,” Salvant said. “Let’s look at it for what it is.”

The judge ordered Couch to comply with weekly check-ins and drug tests.

Couch’s other son, James McWilliams, said his mother is not as wealthy as the media claims.

He said her bank account holds only $100,000, which has been frozen by the feds.

She doesn’t even have enough money to buy a toothbrush.

    Is he being held Mexican jail? Or is he free to meet up with hookers and order Domino’s?

  • Ms..N

    Boo boo cry me a river.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I hope he becomes Papi’s lil mami!

  • kgirl33

    They both look inbred.

    Shiiiiiiid, Mexican jails/prisons ain’t no joke. I know his azz wasn’t plannin on gettin caught, otherwise he would’ve picked a better spot to hideout. Between the excessive filth, language barrier, being referred to as ‘Gringo’ every millisecond, this dummy is miserable times a thousand right about now.

  • chachadigi

    RIGHT! It’s not a jail more like a “detention center”. Either way, he ain’t where he deserves to be.

  • Just Keya

    I don’t care that the mom is on house arrest. I really don’t. She looks sick…but whatever. She needs to be locked up as well. Even if for like 6 months. Because she KNEW he was dead ass wrong. smh. And from what I know, jails in Mexico are not friendly, especially to American’s so, good for him. As long as he is in a jail and not walking around all free, I don’t even care. He deserves.

  • Just Keya

    Right. I would just leave him there. Tuh

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Yet Marie’s man “Frank’s Red Hot” over in NC deserved such high bail amounts for his infractions? There wasn’t a judge in NC that could look out for dumb azz Marie’s pockets? Right….

    Ethan is about to become El Chapo’s best fren and they shall disappear together.

  • SummerBaby

    This old looking kid hasn’t even come close to rotting in jail.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    If he’s being held by the Mexican authorities, then you know shyt ain’t sweet for him. If he’s being held by US authorities they probably took his azz to Burger King like they took that terrorist who murdered those people in the church in SC.

    “While he rots in Mexican prison”

    ??You may not realize it…Or maybe you do? But that statement implies empathy for little ol Affie?? He ain’t rot’n…Not all Mexican jails are as 3rd worldish as many may believe. Just like butt sex isn’t running rampant in the prison system as people tend to believe. I’ve been in a horrible Mexican jail, and yes I had butt sex with Pablo who I later married for green card purposes, but that’s all isolated?

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    That’s the type of mother that wouldn’t turn her child in for rape. Cows like her. I don’t care if either of them sits in jail, they both deserve to be there.

    BUT YET AND STILL her son, your brother, got off for being ‘rich’…

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Her bank account has $100k but is frozen…oh poor her. Yet she was charging Dominos in Mexico so her Amex/MasterCard/Visa clearly still works. Forgive me if I don’t shed a tear for this wench.

  • Just Keya

    Exactly. I am not going to hide you and you were 100% wrong. Nope. You wanted to do the crime, now do the time.

    But what? What was makeup maven’s screen name? And what about my buddy who usta sing with me in the comments? Cake something?

  • SandrasNewFave

    There’s all this talk of how much money she does or doesn’t have. If he knew right from wrong. Pizza in Mexico. Bail amount and flight risk. But 4 people are dead and 2 of his passengers had substantial injury. And he went home to the same parents who hired an expert to testify in court that they can’t raise children properly!
    Somebody really, really needs to kick each and every one of their asses!

  • iWasteTime

    He is not totting in a Mexican jail; that is where he wants to be.
    he is fighting extradition

  • yallcrazy

    She out huh? Had it been a black momma she would be sentenced by now. But this heffa at home with her feet kicked up. smh

  • Canary Red™

    I’m with you MOD, I do not feel sorry for her or her son. And the judge, the judicial system and taxpayers should be offended! She nor her son give a damn!

  • yallcrazy

    He should’ve been put in jail the first time. That child is paralyzed because of him.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Ugh, if only someone could line up this brat, his mama, his lawyer, and the judge that plucked him on the wrist, in a line like bowling pins, and let a tractor trailer be the damn bowling ball.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    They’re going to let this lil bastard go home when he returns from Mexico with another slap on the wrist :rolls eyes: Any who yall played your numbers?

  • SandrasNewFave

    Had it been a black momma
    1- the boy wouldn’t have got off
    2- the remaining children would have been removed for their safety
    3- the IRS would have audited the daddy’s business
    4- facebook pics of video games would show violent tendencies
    5- the home would have been on 24 hour monitor (had they let him out. and the family would have to foot the bill)
    6- their would have been an ‘incident’ during transport back to the US.

    Had it been a black momma, huh??? Yall see what they tried to do that that black momma for whoopin her son’s ass when he was rioting. The damn kid was in the wrong!! She hopped on his azz, and they dug up her past, and got CPS involved.

  • Hmmm~?

    Not to sound rude, but you really think someone running from the feds would use their own credit card in another country? It’s incredibly easy to track and is a sure-fire way of getting caught. Pretty sure she just used cash.

    _____________________

    That would explain why the judge drastically reduced her bail, but she definitely needs to spend some time behind bars.

    As far as her murderous son is concerned, maybe he’ll get what he deserves in that Mexican prison.

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    You’re both kind of right. They were found because one of their telephones had been used to order dominoes.

    Affluenza. Ain’t that a rip.

  • stanhope

    El Chapo proved that a Mexican “jail” is like the Peninsula if you have coins. This kid has ducats so he is likely up to his lips in cat and drinking champagne out of the best cracks in the country all the while with a non stop bong going.

  • Stephanie

    This dumb azz would have probably won the legal argument since no actual alcohol was visible in the video (or was there? If so I missed it), he could’ve just said I was playing ping-pong, no, his dumb Affluenza azz had to run.
    Don’t get it twisted, we all know they were drinking, I’m just saying he could’ve won the legal argument, now he thinks he’s punishing the United States by fighting extradition., ha ha the joke is on you Affluenza boy! May you live the rest your life miserable and be reminded daily by the lives you took.
