Family influence has always made a difference in EVERY society. BUT - should it make a difference when a law is seriously violated?

Family influence has always made a difference in EVERY society. BUT - should it make a difference when a law is seriously violated?

Ethan Couch, a 16 YOA Texas boy was driving drunk when he killed four people at the side of the road. When tried he was found guilty but only got 10 years probation as the judge decided he did not realize what he was doing was wrong as he had been raised under a strong influence of an affluent family and he felt exempt from what most of us recognize as right and wrong. (Note; the judge was a relatively young judge and retired shortly after that ruling!)

Does that sound a lot like Hillary Clinton who in almost every position she has held she has been accused of violating laws, or doing wrong, or related violations of trust and integrity. She always gets out of the accusations though. How many times should a person be accused of wrong doing before suspicion leads to public distrust to his/her credibility, values, honesty and ethics?
