Ethan Couch

Ethan Couch, the teenager who killed 4 people while drunk driving, was transferred from a juvenile detention center to an adult men's prison today.

Couch's eyes were red and puffy from crying while posing for his mugshot at the Lon Evans Corrections Center in downtown Fort Worth, Texas on Thursday.

"He was soft-spoken, not at all defiant, very compliant with everything we asked him to do," Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson told reporters. "He made no requests and voiced no concerns over what was happening."

Anderson said Couch, 18, will be housed with other "high-profile" detainees for his personal safety.

Officers cleared the booking area when Couch was booked into the jail around 1:45 p.m.

Anderson said jail staff would take every precaution to make sure Couch is safe.

"Obviously the big concern with him is someone else in the jail system might try to harm him," Anderson said.

The move to an adult men's jail means Couch will likely be charged as an adult at his Feb. 19 hearing.

He faces 10 years in prison for each of his 4 victims if he is convicted on all charges.

The so-called "affluenza kid" was 16 in June 2013 when he killed 4 people and injured 2 others while drunk driving.

A judge accepted his lawyer's unique argument that Couch didn't understand right from wrong because he was sheltered by his wealthy parents.

Couch and his mother, Tonya, fled Texas in December after he violated his probation. They were apprehended in Mexico in January after ordering pizza.

Couch waived extradition and was deported to the U.S. on Jan. 28.

His mother is on house arrest.

    His ass looks awake now. Cry baby cry baby your weeping eyes. Good for him.

    I believe the cut off age for juvenile detention centers in Texas is 17.

  • Luv Pitties

    I'm sorry but their biggest concern is him being harmed by others???? After he murdered FOUR people and had no remorse???!! FOH Ethan and Lon's Evans Corrections staff.

    She only got house arrest? Wow such a shame! If she was a few shades darker, her family would have been sending sweet letters to her jail cell, smh!

  • Fendi

    He is a thug and a murderer. He should be given the death penalty. His mother should also be thrown under a jail and shown no leniency for her defiance. She has NO respect for the judge in this case nor the justice system. Make an example of Ethan Couch and everyone like him.

    Side eye to this whole statement. I have no sympathy for this dude.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Is he related to Meek?

  • Vonn

    To whomever rapes him in prison...may the force be with you. The jail staff can not protect him forever. Too bad no one could protect the four people that he murdered.

  • Finding Forever…

    WELL ABOUT DAMN TIME...OF COURSE HE HAD "NO COMPLAINTS OR CONCERNS", ISH JUST GOT REAL--IF HE STAYS IN PRISON.

  • suganspice68

    It wouldn't surprise me if Ethan may attempt to commit suicide in prison, his mom is trash.

  • Empress

    Isn't it a concern that anyone in prison might be "harmed"? I hate when officials act as though only affluent white people or high profile inmates are at risk for assault in prison. There are men and women everyday who are brutalized in prison and they are not coddled at all. In fact their plight is often treated with humor not empathy.

  • Too Many Colors

    They throwing book at Ethan. Simply bc they gave him a chance, he ran. They gonna make an example like hell out of him.

  • nucynu25

  • 1/8

    He was sentenced in December of 2013. At the time, he was a juvenile. Couch turned 18 in April 2015. When claims surfaced that he violated his parole in December, he knew he would be handled like an adult, and decided to run.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Well, he's gay. So the judge will look more favorably on him.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This story sounds fishy. Whose body did they bury?

  • Auditor

    Yea but I'm confused on why he was in a juvenile center and not adult jail?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    You think he'll have an advantage? I think he's just looking for attention. I wonder if it will even make it to court.

  • Fendi

    The resident thread piece of shït who calls themselves correcting me and everyone else here decided they wanted to correct me again.

    Ethan Couch was driving while drunk and killed 4 people. When a person drives under the influence, they know what they're risking. He was: 1) drunk; 2) an underage drunk; 3) claimed he was so privileged that he was never taught right from wrong (which is typical of poor folks, not rich ones); and 4) placed on probation, having been told NOT to touch alcohol while on probation.

    From where *I* sit, and in the minds of most law abiding citizens, drunk driving IS capital murder. You know when you get into a car, under the influence, you are risking your life and the lives of everyone in your path. Ethan Couch willfully took the law into his hands. Once it was recorded that he was playing drinking games, rather than face his fate, he, along with his mother, fled the country.

    He is a known flight risk, as is she. She should not be out on bail and on house arrest. She should be in jail with the general population, as he should, pending trial.

    He is 18-years-old. He is not a boy, he is a man. He is old enough to give up his life for his crimes, which cost others their lives. Let us not forget Mike Brown and the fact that he was made to pay for a petty offense with his life at the same age. He wasn't considered a boy by white Americans, but a MAN.

    Both offenders should be judged accordingly. Only one offender is an alcoholic felon with murdered multiple people, showing no remorse. I pray that justice is served in this case. Ethan Couch doesn't deserve to see the light of day outside of a jail cell.

    Make an example of him.

  • Fendi

    He looks 18 going on 45.

  • Fendi

    And drinking out of their parents' glasses when they're left around after they've greeted their guests "goodbye" at social events.

  • Fendi

    We can only be so fortunate. Let him not attempt, but succeed.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Because he was sentenced to probation in juvenile court. So he's still in the juvie system.

  • 1/8

    His initial case was tried in the juvenile court system. He is still under the juvenile court system's jurisdiction. The prosecutor requested the transfer, but if a judge decides to try him as a juvenile, he could go back to the juvenile detention center.

  • Roc

    She hasn't been sentenced yet Tammie. Those were the terms of her release. Either that, or bail. I don't even think a trial has been set for her at this point. Even when it is, I doubt she goes to jail. It's crazy. In GA you can go to jail for traffic tickets, but these people ca KILL folks and get probation.

  • LibraGirlonly

    His parents should have put their foot in his you know what a long time ago .

  • LibraGirlonly

    I guess he's but hurt too.

  • 1/8

    His mother helped him break the law. His parents seem to be part of the problem.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I did read this article and all I could do was smh. Go tell the other stupid women? Really

  • 1/8

    You also have to consider the fact that he was a juvenile when the crime occurred. The courts can't arbitrarily turn around and treat a juvenile offense like an adult crime. He was probably moved to an adult facility, because it's more secure and he is an obvious flight risk.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Yeah you are right. I guess if you have idiots for parents chances are you will be an idiot too.

    Unless there have been specific threats made, why would they give him special treatment? I'm sure a lot of the men in prison would like a private room and special protection, but they're not going to get it.

    Ethan's race isn't the issue. Our justice system coddles criminals and oftentimes, revictimizes the victims and their families.

    There are offenders of all races in the juvenile justice system. Some of them have committed horrific crimes, but because of their age and liberal, legal loopholes, they're treated with kid gloves.

    Trust me, so-called privileged white kids aren't the only ones getting away with a slap on the wrist.

    It may not be an open post, but the subject matter is relevant to the discussion of Ethan's case.

    You believe Ethan is being treated gingerly, because of his race and so-called financial status. I say, his light sentence is due to a flawed judicial system that favors criminals over victims.

    Some people need to remove their race-colored glasses and examine the facts.

  • understandingoverignorance

    Now he shall or should have to live out four life times before his spirit can reemerge into life for his crime. But shouldn't it be sealed since it was committed when he was a teenager. But now he is going to face adult charges for crime when he was a teenager and not an adult. Oh well he ran to Mexico when caught on camera. His mother had no business setting stuff like this but he did commit a violation and it was in connection a crime he should've been charged as an adult because he knew what he was doing driving drunk too fast and then killing four people. Just driving drunk was enough to put him adult jail for because he had a drivers license so four life time fit in thought.
