Mother of ‘Affluenza’ Teen Indicted on Money Laundering Charge

The mother of the “affluenza teen” Ethan Couch was charged with aiding her son in his escape to Mexico last year.

A grand jury Thursday indicted Tonya Couch on charges including hindering apprehension and money laundering, according to a report by the Associated Press. Couch and her son were taken into custody in December after the two fled to Mexico after a video surfaced online of her son drinking, which violated his probation.
