Defending Against Intoxication Manslaughter Charges

Any situation that involves injury or death due to operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be taken very seriously in the state of Texas. In Texas, this is known as intoxication manslaughter, which occurs when an inebriated driver causes a wreck that results in the death of an individual. Being charged with intoxication manslaughter can be a frightening ordeal, but with the help of a criminal defense attorney you can ensure that your rights will be protected and an excellent defense will be mounted on your behalf.

Possible Penalties for Intoxicated Manslaughter

  • 20 years in prison with a 2 year mandatory minimum.

  • Up to 800 hours of community service.
