Affluenza teen Ethan Couch released from Texas jail

Couch served almost two years for violating his probation.

Ethan Couch, now 20, made national news after a defense psychologist said he suffered from "affluenza".

Though Couch killed four and left a fifth victim paralyzed, he wasn't initially sentenced to any jail time.
