Sheriff: Mom of 'affluenza' teen posts bond, release expected Tuesday after

Tonya Couch, mom to "affluenza" teen Ethan Couch, will likely be released from jail in Fort Worth, Texas, on Tuesday after posting bond.

Couch posted the bond and will be released Tuesday morning "barring any unseen delays" after being fitted with a Global Positioning System monitor, Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson said in a tweet posted late Monday night. Couch faces up to 10 years in prison for helping her son escape to Mexico.

Attorneys for the mother of "affluenza" teen Ethan Couch will request a bond reduction Monday afternoon. She was recently released on $75,000 bail.

State District Judge Wayne Salvant said he understood prosecutors' concerns that Couch might flee again, but that the charge against her, while a third-degree felony, wasn't serious enough to merit a $1 million bond.

In case you didn't catch that, it bears repeating: The mother of the teen who was declared so rich and spoiled that he didn't know killing people was wrong got sticker shock at her $1 million bail and finagled the judge down to a lower price. During his case, the defense played up his age and a psychologist said he had "affluenza", or "the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never set limits".

The judge ordered her to stay at that residence around the clock as she begins her release on bond.

The affluenza diagnosis, which is not recognised by the American Psychiatric Association, was widely ridiculed. Both were taken into custody later that month in Puerto Vallarta, after a call for pizza delivery tipped off authorities to their whereabouts.

Darran Gabbert said he interviewed several people who said Tonya and Ethan Couch attended a "planning" meeting with a number of Ethan's friends prior to them leaving for Mexico.

"Another of Tonya Couch's sons, Steven McWilliams, testified Monday that the balance on a bank account belonging to her read "-$99 billion".

The pair allegedly made a run for it after video footage posted on Twitter appeared to show Ethan at a drinking party, possible violating his probation.

Meanwhile, Ethan Couch is still in Mexico as attorneys fight his deportation.
