WHAT IS INTOXICATION MANSLAUGHTER IN TEXAS?
Under Texas law, an individual commits the offense of intoxication manslaughter when he/she operates a motor vehicle in a public place and is intoxicated by alcohol or impaired by drugs upon causing the death of another by accident or mistake.
WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR INTOXICATION MANSLAUGHTER?
Intoxication manslaughter is the most serious DWI charges in the state, since the crime is classified as a 2nd degree felony. A 2nd degree felony is punishable by a prison sentence between two and 20 years and a fine of up to $10,000.
However, if a peace officer, firefighter or a person who is an emergency medical personnel worker is killed upon an intoxicated manslaughter incident while on active duty, the crime is considered a first-degree felony. A first-degree felony is punishable by a life imprisonment term or a prison sentence between five and 99 years, as well as a fine of up to $10,000.
