Incredibly, on December 10, 2013, Texas 323rd District Judge Jean Hudson Boyd sentenced Ethan Couch to just 10-years probation and therapy at a long-term, in-patient facility after his attorneys successfully argued that the teen suffered from so-called "affluenza" and needed rehabilitation, not prison.

...
Prosecutors repeated their request at the hearing that jail time be added to Ethan Crouch's sentence of 10-years probation but Judge Boyd denied that request.
...
Critics have also complained that Texas District Judge Jean Boyd gave a much harsher sentence to another 16-year-old intoxicated driver 10 years earlier. In February 2004, Judge Boyd sentenced Eric Bradlee Miller to 20 years, telling him, "the court is aware you had a sad childhood...I hope you will take advantage of the services [offered by the Texas Youth Commission] and turn your life around.
...
State District Judge Jean Boyd's decision to let Ethan Couch walk had the victims' families and citizens outraged. Citizens called on Gov. Perry to remove her from the bench. Under Texas law, the governor can remove a sitting judge with 2/3 support from Texas House and Senate members. However, Boyd has already announced she will retire when her term ends on December 31, 2014. In the meantime she is chair of the Juvenile Justice Committee of the Judicial Section of the State Bar of Texas and has previously served as Chair of the Juvenile Law Section of the State Bar of Texas, which perhaps explains many of the problems with juvenile justice.

Jean Boyd sees problems every day.
As a judge in the 323rd District Court of Tarrant County, known as the family court, she deals with hundreds of troubling, if not disturbing, cases every month.

It would be easy to just deal with the constant flood of cases and hope the problems would solve themselves eventually.Boyd, however, decided to be pro-active, seeking to push for more long-term solutions.
One of the long-term solutions Boyd succeeded in implementing is Tarrant County's participation in National Adoption Day in 2000.
