    'Affluenza' Teen's Lawyers File Motion to Get Him Out of Jail

    Ethan Couch walks into a Tarrant County courtroom, April 12, 2016.

    Lawyers for "affluenza" teenager Ethan Couch argue in a court filing that he should be released from jail because the judge in his case had no jurisdiction in the matter.

    The 19-year-old Couch is serving nearly two years in a North Texas jail for a 2013 drunken-driving wreck that killed four people.
