Defending Against Charges of Intoxication Manslaughter
Dallas prosecutors are very likely to aggressively pursue whatever case they have against you if they believe that you are responsible for the death of another. Though you will be legally considered to be less culpable than under other circumstances, the penalties that may be handed down during the sentencing process for these charges can be devastating. With that in mind, you will need to do everything you can to protect yourself now, while you still have the opportunity to do so.
Possible Consequences of Intoxication Manslaughter
Since intoxication manslaughter is treated as a second degree felony in our state, the penalties that may be handed down on these charges have the potential to change almost every aspect of your life. Depending upon the exact circumstances of your case, you may face the following consequences if you are convicted of intoxication manslaughter.
- Up to 20 years in prison
- Up to $10,000 in fines
- Driver’s license revocation
Though this is a serious offense, our Dallas legal team will be there with you to defend your rights and to help you take the precautions that may be necessary to protect your future.
