In some situations, an arrest for
driving while intoxicated can lead to a charge of intoxicated manslaughter. In these cases, individuals
were involved in an accident while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
and the accident resulted in the death of another individual. Situations
like these are difficult because although the person acted while under
the influence, according to Texas law, they still willingly entered a
vehicle and operated it. This act is considered a reckless car accident
that specifically endangered other individuals on the road and resulted
in the death of another person. If you are convicted of intoxicated manslaughter,
you could be sentenced to life in prison.
