  • Intoxication Manslaughter

    Murder

    I was hired shortly after a major auto accident in which my client was intoxicated and accidentally ran over his best friend who had just called my client to come get him from the scene of an accident he had just been in. The highway on which the accident happened had major construction going on at the time and posed a danger to motorists on the road and when my client came up to the previous accident scene he was not able to stop in time and subsequently ran over and killed his best friend.

    I prepared a presentation to the grand jury in Dallas detailing what happened and how devastated my client and the family of his friend are and the grand jury decided to no-bill the intoxication manslaughter charge (a second-degree felony carrying a maximum punishment of 20 years in prison) and instead charged my client with a misdemeanor DWI charge.
