‘Affluenza’ mom, 50-year-old Tonya Couch, attended court today. The Tarrant County DA’s office wanted Judge Wayne Salvant to revoke her bond, and return her to jail, according to CBS 11.
Officials allege Couch was drinking alcohol earlier this month, had possession of a gun, and both violate her bond conditions.
Today, Judge Salvant denied the district attorney’s office’s request, but he did admonish Couch, telling her the “eyes of Texas” are on her and she needs to use better judgement.
The judge also amended Couch’s bond conditions. Now, she can no longer even be in possession of alcohol, let alone consume it.
After Couch and her son Ethan fled to Mexico in 2015, she was charged with hindering apprehension and money laundering
Ethan Couch is currently on his 2nd year of a two-year jail term, as condition of his adult probation for having killed (4) people at age 16, while driving drunk in 2013.
