Under Texas law, a person commits intoxication manslaughter if he or she operates a motor vehicle, aircraft, watercraft, or amusement ride in a public place while intoxicated, and by reason of that intoxication, causes the death of another by accident or mistake.
- Imprisonment for a period of time between two and 20 years
- A maximum fine of $10,000
- License suspension and/or revocation
In both cases of intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter, prosecutors will likely also pursue all penalties attached to a DWI arrest, thus, compounding the final penalties if found guilty.
