Manslaughter Charges and DWI

While most people are aware that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is against the law, many individuals do not consider the very real consequences of such actions. Persons who choose to operate a vehicle while intoxicated may run the risk of causing serious injuries or death to themselves and others on the road.

If an intoxicated driver causes the death of another individual through an accident or collision, he or she may face intoxication manslaughter charges along with DWI charges. If you or someone you love is facing criminal charges as a result of drinking and driving, contact Dallas DWI lawyer Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 845-7007 to discuss your legal options.

Intoxication Manslaughter

Persons may be charged with intoxication manslaughter if they cause the death of another person while operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Vehicles may include:

  • Cars, trucks, or motorcycles

  • Boats or other watercraft
  • Amusement rides

Persons who are responsible for assembling amusement rides may also face intoxication manslaughter charges if they are found guilty of performing their duties while intoxicated and their actions resulted in the death of another individual.
