Rich Teen Kills 4 and Only Gets Probation Because Of “Affluenza” [Video]

A rich teenager kills 4 people while driving drunk and only gets probation because of Affluenza. What is Affluenza? Well apparently it’s a condition that only the wealthy suffer from in which they don’t really understand the consequences of their actions. Wait what?

I take my hat off to the lawyer that got this kid off of doing some serious jail time. Because I never think a judge would be dumb enough to fall for something so stupid.

A defense psychologist called it “affluenza,” a syndrome that keeps someone from a wealthy background from learning that bad behavior has consequences. That explanation helped a North Texas teenager get a sentence of probation after he drove while drunk and killed four pedestrians.

The 16-year-old was sentenced Tuesday in a Fort Worth juvenile court to 10 years of probation after he confessed to intoxication manslaughter in the June 15 crash on a rural road.

According to officials, the teenager and some friends were seen on surveillance video stealing two cases of beer from a store. He had seven passengers in his Ford F-350, was speeding and had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal limit, according to testimony during the trial. The pickup fatally struck four pedestrians: Brian Jennings, 43; Breanna Mitchell, 24; Shelby Boyles, 21; and her mother Hollie Boyles, 52.
