The notorious affluenza case brought national attention to Texas on multiple occasions, perhaps most recently when the affluenza teen and his mother were accused of fleeing the country. Initially, the mother was criminally charged for allegedly aiding her son with his flight, but at least one additional charge has been filed since then. Added by a grand jury, she is accused of committing money laundering.
These charges stem from a Dec. 2015 incident, in which her son was apparently depicted in video that showed him drinking alcohol. This was an apparent violation of the boy's probation. He and his mother then drove a pickup south until they arrived across the border, and they continued to avoid authorities for another two or so weeks. In Jan. 2016, the mother was deported back to Texas and released on bond.
