Drunken driving case involving teen draws more criticism

Readers may remember hearing some time back about a Texas teenager who was convicted of intoxication manslaughter after driving drunk and killing four individuals in a crash.

In his case, the defense attorney had argued, it was a sense of entitlement that drove him to make poor decisions.
