Mother of ‘affluenza’ teen agrees to be sent back to Texas

Tonya Couch, 48, appeared for an extradition hearing in downtown Los Angeles, where she was flown last week after being deported from Mexico. She said very little, answering “yes” when asked if she is the Tonya Couch wanted by the state of Texas.

It’s unclear when she will be sent to the Lone Star State, where prosecutors charged her with hindering the apprehension of a felon. Her next court date in Los Angeles was set for Jan. 19, but authorities in Texas could pick her up at any time, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Tonya Couch and her 18-year-old son, Ethan, were apprehended last week in Mexico, where authorities believe the pair fled in November as Texas prosecutors investigated whether he had violated his probation in a car crash that killed four people.
