DALLAS (AP) — In a story Dec. 21 about the search for a Texas teen on probation for a deadly drunken-driving crash, The Associated Press reported erroneously the punishment that Ethan Couch could face if his probation is revoked. Couch could be held in a juvenile facility until April if his probation is revoked, not 10 years in prison. Couch could face 10 years in prison for each of the four deaths if his case is transferred to adult court and he violates his probation in the future.
