Intoxication Manslaughter Penalties
You will be charged with intoxication manslaughter if you ran into someone else and killed them while drunkenly operating a vehicle.
Under § 49.08, a vehicle can be:
- A motor vehicle
- An aircraft
- A watercraft
- An amusement ride
Prosecutors rarely offer probation for this crime, but usually push the judges and jury for a prison sentence that can range from 2 to 20 years. If convicted of this crime, you may also be forced to pay a fine of up to $10,000. If probation is offered, 120 to 180 days in county jail will still be imposed. Community service ranges from 240-800 hours.
Challenging Your Charges
Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty. Just because you were involved in an accident does not mean that you caused it. The burden of proof lies on the prosecutor to prove that you committed the crime.
The Law Office of Steve O. Gonzalez is here to gather and present any evidence that can cast doubt on the prosecutor’s case against you. We have several tactics we can employ when crafting your personalized defense plan.

I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend this law firm. Recently, I found myself in a challenging situation with a DWI and unlawfully carrying weapon case. However, with the expertise and support of Kristina King, I was able to prove my innocence and have the cases dismissed. During the entire process, Kristina was an exceptional guide. She provided me with invaluable assistance, was incredibly informative, and showcased her extensive knowledge in the field. I genuinely cannot thank her enough for all her hard work.
