What is Considered Manslaughter in Texas?

Manslaughter is defined in the Texas Penal Code §19.01 as the act of knowingly and recklessly causing the death of another individual. If you or a loved one were arrested and charged with manslaughter, you will be facing felony charges and could potentially be tried, convicted and sentenced to the death penalty.

What is Intoxicated Manslaughter?

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.
