Penalties for Intoxicated Manslaughter in Texas
If you are found guilty of this
second-degree felony, you will be subjected to confinement in a Texas Department of Corrections
for up to 20 years. The minimum sentencing for incarceration is two years, but
penalties could vary depending on the specific circumstances of your arrest. As a
part of your sentencing, you may be required to pay a fine of up to $10,000
and you may also be placed on probation.
In most circumstances when probation is granted, the convicted individual
will still be required to spend at least 120 days in jail as a condition
of the probation.
Violating any probationary terms, such as not reporting to an officer or failing a drug or alcohol test,
could potentially place you back into the jail system. Almost every case
will also require you to attend mandatory DWI education courses and maintain
steady employment throughout your probation.
