We Understand the Burden of Proof
In Texas, intoxication manslaughter is a defined very specifically apart from involuntary manslaughter. Typically, manslaughter cases will require the prosecution to prove that the person charged must not only be guilty of the act, but also have some recognition of negligence when committing an act that resulted in a death. Under Texas intoxication manslaughter law, however, the prosecution has a lower standard of proof of the "guilty mind" and must only prove that the driver was intoxicated.
If you have been charged with intoxication manslaughter, your attorney will seek to raise reasonable doubt about your level of intoxication and the police officer's probable cause for charging you with DWI at the time of the accident. We have the experience you can rely on.
