extremists are plotting more attacks. >> the so-called affluenza mom who escaped with her spoiled son to mex, now trying to get out of jail herself. her court hearing set to start right now. so let get to it. >> breaking news. >> the mother of the so-called affluenza teen is due in court at any moment now. a live look at the courtroom in fort worth, texas, tonya couch accuse of helping her son escape to mexico. after video of him playing peer pong in 2014 he killed four people while driving drunk. a judge didn't send him to prison because the defense claim said he was so spoiled and didn't know right from wrong and had a bad case of affluenza. the judge bought. the teenager in a detention center in mexico but mom is back in texas, facing charges for
12:02 pm
helping her fugitive son. when she does go before the judge at any moment, we're expecting her defense team to argue for a big reduction in bond, right now, it's set at $1 million. as we reported here, tonya couch doesn't like her jail cell one bit. the sheriff says he has had to tell her, it's a jail, not a resort. cops busted ethan couch with his mom in the mexican resort town, not before a strip club employee followed him to his mom's room so she could pay his two-grand bill. he ran out of cash. casey is lying at the cruise in texas. what next? >> reporter: we expect a couple of different things at this hearing. first of all, tonya couch is expected to enter a plea. she was unable to do so at her arraignment on friday because her attorney was not present. remember, she got stuck in traffic on the way to court that morning. the lawyer for tonya couch said
12:03 pm
her client will plead, however, not guilty. she is charged with hindering the apprehension of a felon, which carries a prison sentence up to ten years behind bars if she is convicted. today we also expect that the judge will consider this reduction in bail. tonya couch's attorney is seeking something around $15,000 instead of the 1 million, according to court paperwork, but if and win she does make bail, depending on what happens today there will be restrictions. the judge talked about that at her arraignment. she would have to do things like surrender her passport and wear one of those gps ankle monitors if she leaves jail. >> the judge addressing the court now. let's listen. >> all right. and miss couch is here also.%8s÷ who is going to open for the state?
12:04 pm
we'll wave opening. >> well, miss gordon. >> thank you, your honor. i filed an application for writ of habeas corpus on behalf of tonya couch. we raised two issues on the application for writ of habeas corpus. one is the issue of probable cause. she support the arrest warrant and whether there were false statements made in the arrest warrant affidavit that was the basis of the arrest warrant issued in the case. we have conferred with the state and we will -- we are not waiving that issue. however, we will just be objecting to the second issue in the application for writ and that is the amount of the bond set. >> very well. >> and at this time, we call -- we would ask that our witnesses that we have subpoenaed be sworn.
12:05 pm
>> where are your witnesses. >> we have anderson, ursula thomas,. >> come up here. >> come on up. is this it? >> no, there's a woman who is coming in. >> oh, okay. >> come on up, ma'am. all three raise your right hand and i'll swear you in. solemnly swear the tim you give will be at the truth, whole truth, and nothing bit the truth so help you god. >> i do.
12:06 pm
>> give your full name. >> -- [inaudible] >> you? >> steven james. >> all right and now? >> -- [inaudible] >> who is your first witness. >> steven mcwilliams and at this time i would also -- >> the rules -- you have to remain outside until you're called in to testify. wait, ma'am. don't leave yet, either. >> remember, this is about how much bail the affluenza mom will have to pay. they set it at a million bucks. there are reports he wants it as low as 25,000 buck, the same mom who paid the $2,000 strip club bill for the tide who shouldn't have been in mexico. so do you lower the bail, leave it where it is, and will tonya couch, the mom, speak.
12:07 pm
let's listen. [inaudible conversations]-ô >> all right, i'm waiting for one more. >> while we're doing this, let's bring in -- while we're waiting let's gripping in arthur aidala. one question here is whether they enhad a right to arrest this rom. >> that's basically what the defense attorney just said. she wants to questions the -- i assume the law enforcement investigators about what probable cause they had to even arrest her before they get to whether or not the bail should
12:08 pm
be set at all. obviously the judge found they didn't have a right to arrest her, then she walks without any bail. >> there's a matter of flight risk, isn't she? he already -- well-flighted. >> if they don't have probable cause to arrest her, there's not enough evidence. this is what we would call a fishinged and digs. the defense attorney is using the bail issue to find out as much as she can about her case before her case starts. it's a smart move by the defense attorney. >> listen. >> all right. >> thank you, your honor. you have stated your name. state your name again. >> steven mcwilliams. >> i have some questions. if you don't understand what i'm saying or asking, let me know. >> yes. >> do you know top ya couch? >> yes, die. >> how do you know her. >> she is my mother. >> how old are you? >> 29. >> where do -- what county do you live?

12:47 pm
amount of killings involved with his organization throughout mexico and central america. that last war that they had, the previous war, prior to his incarceration, took a lot of lives, and, yeah, i'm sure in the thousands. >> it's good to talk to you, thank you. you can't forget that the reason there's this supply, this thing, is because there's such demand in the united states that is not going away. the void that it left by his being locked up is not a void that will stay there somebody else will step in there and in sin low people are worried -- sinaloa, people are worried about it. and then there's this "rolling stone" article. 10,000 words, and it's horrible. it just is terrible.
