Jail chaplain says 'affluenza teen' is 'close to fully understanding' his impact on crash victims' families

Jalisco State Prosecutors Office(FORT WORTH, Texas) — A Texas jail chaplain who regularly met with Ethan Couch, the man at the center of the so-called affluenza case, during his two-year sentence says he believes Couch is “remorseful.”

“I believe that Ethan is seriously remorseful,” Tim Williams said. “I talked to Ethan about helping him express how to own what you’ve done…. I think he’s close to fully understanding the full fallout of what he’s caused.”

Couch, 20, was sentenced to two years after violating his probation conditions for a 2013 fatal drunk-driving accident that killed four people, including a youth pastor who was Williams’ childhood friend, and injured several others.

While Couch was in jail, Williams said they met almost every week, and at one point, they discussed Couch apologizing to the victims’ families.

“And Couch said he is ready to do that,” Williams said. “Ethan was 16 when this began and which is a very young guy, right? And my impression is that he doesn’t know how to express some of these apologies, and it has been an issue of him growing up.”

Williams said he spoke with Couch right before he was released from the Tarrant County jail Monday about staying in touch and his next steps.

“Right before he got out we talked about, ‘What are your plans… and you’re going to have to learn to thrive well where you have the option to make some really bad choices again.'” Williams said. “So it was a very encouragement type thing where I was speaking to him quite a bit and saying, ‘You have what it takes to make good choices.'”

Couch’s case gained national attention when a psychologist involved in the case said then-16-year-old Couch was a product of “affluenza” — a term he used to describe Couch’s irresponsible lifestyle associated with his affluent upbringing. Couch had a blood alcohol content level three times the legal limit on the night of the crash.

“[Couch] will now serve the remaining six years of his period of community supervision under the terms and conditions imposed by the court,” his lawyers, Scott Brown and Reagan Wynn, said in a statement to ABC News. “From the beginning, Ethan has admitted his conduct, accepted responsibility for his actions, and felt true remorse for the terrible consequences of those actions.

“Now, nearly five years after this horrific event, Ethan does not wish to draw attention to himself and requests privacy so he may focus on successfully completing his community supervision and going forward as a law-abiding citizen,” the lawyers’ statement said.

One of the victims, 43-year-old Pastor Brian Jennings, had been a friend of Williams’ for years. Williams said he spent a great deal of time working through his anger over losing his friend and asked to meet with Couch after his sentencing hearing for his probation violation.

Couch had been in custody for a few months when the met for the first time, Williams said. He started out by telling Couch that he and Jennings had grown up together, “and Ethan’s reaction was one of just shock,” he said.

“He was a little bit frozen,” Williams continued. “It was very much of [my] just trying to be open with him.”

Then, Williams said he and Couch talked about forgiveness.

“He had a lot of kind of pushback and said, ‘I just — forgiveness really just probably isn’t for me because this is so bad,'” Williams said. “I think he understood that you know the public view of him was very harsh, very condemning.”

“When I first met with him, there was no real indication that he owned what he had done. He had just been caught,” Williams continued. “And I shared with him, I said, ‘Look, you’ve got some hope whether you know it or not because you didn’t take the ‘I’m not guilty’ route. … But if you take a not guilty route and been dishonest then I’m not sure you would even be able to get on that path.”

Couch pleaded guilty to four counts of intoxication manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years of probation and time in a rehabilitation center.

However, in 2015, he failed to show up to a check-in with his probation officer, sparking a manhunt. Authorities discovered he had fled to Mexico with his mother, Tonya Couch.

Ethan Couch was extradited back to the U.S. and later sentenced to 720 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation.

Meanwhile, Tonya Couch was charged with hindering apprehension of a known felon and money laundering, but released on bond. Last week, though, she violated her probation when she failed her court-ordered drug test. She was arrested and booked into the same jail as her son just days before his release.

Her trial is set to begin in May.

Female suspect in shooting at YouTube's headquarters died of apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police say

No Comments

By KT

KGO-TV(SAN BRUNO, Calif.) — The suspect in a shooting at YouTube’s headquarters in California’s Bay Area is believed to be a woman who was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said the scene was an “active event” and that law enforcement was methodically searching the building to “make sure it is clear.” The building has been evacuated, and investigators are expected to be on the scene “through the night,” he said.

The shooting appears to be the result of a domestic situation, two law enforcement officials told ABC News. The incident does not appear to be terror-related, the sources said.

The suspect was 35 to 40 years old, the sources said, and lived in Southern California. She had no apparent connection to YouTube.

A handgun was used in the attack, he said. The identity of the suspected shooter has not been released.

There is no immediate threat to the community, Barberini said.

At least four victims have been transported to area hospitals, Barberini said. Three of those victims sustained gunshot wounds, while the fourth victim suffered a non-life-threatening injury such as a broken or twisted ankle, he said.

Three people have been transported to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital spokesman Brett Andrew told reporters in a press conference.

A 36-year-old male patient is in critical condition, Andrew said. One female victim, 32, is in serious condition, and another female victim, 27, is in fair condition, he said.

The victim in critical condition is believed to have been the suspect’s intended target, two law enforcement sources told ABC News.

The other victims were apparently unintended.

The patients are awake and aware of what happened, said Dr. Andre Campbell, a trauma surgeon at San Francisco General Hospital.

It is unclear which hospital the fourth victim was transported to.

The shooting appears to have occurred in a courtyard area on YouTube’s campus, Barberini said.

Employees tweeted that an active shooter was in the building and that people inside had barricaded themselves in rooms. Employees were later evacuated.

One employee, Todd Sherman, tweeted that he was sitting in a meeting when he heard rumbling from what he first thought was an earthquake but was really people nearby who were running away.

Sherman said that after someone told him that “there was a person with a gun,” he “looked down and saw blood drips on the floor and stairs.”

Bay Area residents Tim McCarthy and Travis Ganley were taking their lunch break at a Carl’s Jr. restaurant near YouTube’s campus when they heard about 15 gunshots go off, they told ABC News.

When they looked out of the window, they saw people running down the stairs of YouTube’s building, McCarthy said.

Although they didn’t realize exactly what was wrong, they opened the side door to the restaurant, beckoning the fleeing crowd to take cover inside.

“That’s when we realized that the people we let in were injured,” McCarthy said.

One woman had been shot in her calf and had blood all over her pants and shoe, he said. He and others grabbed napkins and a shirt to apply to the wound, while another bystander fashioned a tourniquet from a bungee cord.

In a press conference, YouTube employee Chris Dale described YouTube’s working environment as a “tight-knit community” that “feels like a family” and thanked San Bruno police for their quick response to the shooting.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki wrote on Twitter: “There are no words to describe how horrible it was to have an active shooter @YouTube today. Our deepest gratitude to law enforcement & first responders for their rapid response. Our hearts go out to all those injured & impacted today. We will come together to heal as a family.”

Aerial footage showed people coming out of the building with their hands in the air, surrounded by a heavy police presence. Officers in bulletproof vests were then seen entering the building.

Police were seen patting down people outside after they left the building. Later, investigators could be seen going from car to car while searching the parking lot.

Barberini said he was “grateful to the folks at YouTube” because all of the employees responded to the situation in an “exceptional manner.”

About 1,700 people work on the YouTube campus, ABC San Francisco station KGO-TV reported.

The city of San Bruno is located just south of San Francisco, near the San Francisco International Airport.

Google, which is the parent company of YouTube, said in a statement that it was coordinating with authorities.
