Intoxication Manslaughter

Intoxication Manslaughter Is A Felony Of The Second Degree

If you were driving in a public place while intoxicated and caused the death of another by accident or mistake, Texas law classifies the accident as a second-degree felony.

Penalty includes two to 20 years in jail and up to a $10,000 fine. Be aware that if two people are killed in the accident, a person could be charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter.

The court can order that you install a mandatory interlock device on vehicle for a minimum period.

Under Texas law, intoxication manslaughter is distinct from vehicular manslaughter. In the case of intoxication manslaughter, the government has to prove that the driver was intoxicated and by reason of that intoxication caused the death of another person.

The allegation must come with solid evidence beyond a reasonable doubt in order for a conviction to be successful.
