Daily Kos: Today: Judge Who Let Off "Affluenza" Teen Murderer Rules Out Any Jail Time At All



Recall last year a 16-year old rich kid, intoxicated and on Valium, plowed into and killed four pedestrians. He was indignant and non-remorseful from the moment the cops arrived and throughout the trial.

Incredibly, District Judge Jean Boyd agreed with the defense and awarded 10 years probation. America was introduced to a new term: "affluenza".
