Most people who get arrested with a DWI or DUI are just your average citizens. All it takes is one too many beers to turn a fun night out into the worst decision of your life. DWIs (driving while intoxicated) and DUIs (driving under the influence) are two extremely serious charges in the state of Texas, as well as anywhere else throughout the country. If you have been charged with a DWI or DUI, you need the best DWI lawyer to represent your case.
Intoxication assault is when an intoxicated individual causes serious bodily injury to another person while operating a motor vehicle. This can result in imprisonment from 2-10 years and/or a fine up to $10,000. If injury was done to a police officer, firefighter, or emergency medical personnel, it is then considered a second-degree felony and the offender could receive a prison sentence from 2-20 years and/or a fine up to $10,000.
Intoxication manslaughter is when an individual is purposely or intentionally killed while driving a motor vehicle under the influence. This is considered a second-degree felony in Texas and can result in 2-20 years in prison. Intoxication assault and manslaughter cases are very difficult and require a reliable defense team with years of training and experience to get the charges lowered.
