Leading Off (12/16/15)

Warrant Issued for Ethan Couch. We wrote about the infamous "affluenza" family in May, under the headline "The Worst Parents Ever." Recently video surfaced of Ethan possibly violating his probation. Now the Tarrant County district attorney's office says Couch missed a check-in with his probation officer, and officials don't know where he and his mother are. Does this mean Couch will finally get the prison sentence so many people believe he deserves? Would you bet on it? Wisconsin Woman Who Came to Dallas for Sex with Minor Pleads Guilty. Jennifer Dougherty allegedly began a relationship with a 14-year-old boy from North Texas after meeting online, playing video games. She apparently admitted to having sex with the boy at several local hotels, and also at her house, where he flew without his parents' permission. Dougherty faces up to 30 years in prison. Funeral Home Accused of Using Dead Woman's Credit Card. Four days after a young woman died, her family started seeing new charges on her credit card. They noticed that they never got the card back from the Calvario Funeral Home, in Bishop Arts. Police say they have video evidence of a 33-year-old employee of the funeral home using the card. Ugh. Cowboys Fan Arrested for Selfie Attempt at Lambeau. A football fan was arrested after the Packers-Cowboys game this weekend when he hopped a fence to take a better selfie photo. The fine assessed: $880. And it's not clear if he actually took the selfie before being arrested.

Now the Tarrant County district attorney’s office says Couch missed a check-in with his probation officer, and officials don’t know where he and his mother are.
