DWI Manslaughter Defense Attorney

Working to Reduce Charges & Serious Penalties

DWI and DUI allegations are serious charges that pose equally serious criminal penalties. DWI manslaughter, on the other hand, is nothing short of devastating. When a motorist is driving while intoxicated and causes an accident that involves the death of another person, they can be prosecuted for intoxication manslaughter. According to § 49.08 of the Texas Penal Code, a person convicted of intoxication manslaughter is guilty of a second degree felony.

Penalties for a DWI manslaughter conviction can include:

  • A minimum sentence of 2 years in prison
  • A maximum sentence of 20 years in prison
  • May also face additional fines of up to $10,000

As these penalties are extremely serious, it is of the utmost importance that you seek qualified and experienced representation from a Dallas DWI attorney at Knight Law Office.
