High-profile attorney in Mexico representing Ethan Couch

A high-profile Mexican attorney known for winning big cases has confirmed that he is representing Ethan Couch, the Tarrant County teen whose “affluenza” defense earned him probation in four drunken-driving deaths and who is fighting attempts to extradite him from Mexico.

Fernando Benitez of Tijuana said in a Twitter message to KXAS-TV (NBC5) that he wants to make sure Couch, 18, is treated lawfully.

“My interest is that if they are looking for his extradition to the United States, that it proceeds only according to the constitution and the law,” he wrote in Spanish.

He did not immediately respond to a question about who is paying him.
