GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP) — A teen fugitive from Texas known for using an "affluenza" defense was granted a three-day delay in deportation on Wednesday, the same day he and his mother were scheduled to be sent back to the U.S., according to a Mexican official.

An official with Mexico's Migration Institute told Associated Press that 18-year-old Ethan Couch won a three-day court injunction. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he or she wasn't authorized to be quoted by name.
