Intoxication Manslaughter is a serious criminal offense in Texas which often leaves its defendants in prison for extremely long terms if they’re convicted.
In 2014, thousands of people suffered alcohol-related injuries and deaths on Texas roads and highways. This level of loss of life is almost sure to pave the way to an enhancement of already stiff criminal penalties for Intoxicated Manslaughter and general DWI offenses.
Although heartbreaking for all parties involved, Intoxication Manslaughter charges can be beat.
This is a fact.

Penalties If Convicted of Intoxicated Manslaughter
Persons charged with Intoxicated Manslaughter, and convicted, face punishment under 2nd Degree Felony guidelines.
However, in some cases, more serious punishment may be sought, and there are efforts underway to add a life imprisonment option to the justice toolkit.
Monetary Fines for a person convicted of intoxicated manslaughter max-out at 10,000.00 in addition to prison sentencing guidelines that range from 2 to 20 years.
If convicted, this time will be served in a Texas penitentiary operated by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
