It is unlikely that he will catch those lucky breaks most other humans do. He is one of those Poor Little Rich Boys whom the world will be compelled to treat badly.
That latest bad break he caught was the ruling of the Texas Supreme Court that he will serve another year in prison.
That high court didn't accept his lawyer's argument that his case shouldn't have been transferred from juvenile (civil) to criminal court. Here is the coverage in Daily Mail.
Couch was 16 when he was involved in a fatal drunk-driving accident. He was tried as a juvenile. At that time, his lawyer got him off on what is now known as the "affluenza defense." The line of reasoning was that his wealthy upbringing was so cushy that he had been unable to develop a sense of responsibility.
His sentence had been 10 years probation, which he violated. His mother and he fled to Mexico. Then life caught up with him. MADD was among those lobbying on social media for him to be tried as an adult.
Likely, Couch will keep attracting trouble. Eventually, he could find that his life is truly finished the way Thomas Gilbert Jr. had. When his hedge fund manager father docked the adult son's allowance, Gilbert murdered him.
Couch's "crime" may be that he is incapable of learning from adversity.
