Texas Intoxication Manslaughter Penalties

Intoxication manslaughter is a second-degree felony in the state of Texas. With a slight change in circumstances, what would have been a misdemeanor DWI can quickly become a very serious felony. Deferred adjudication is not an option for intoxication offenses.

DWI manslaughter can carry the following penalties:

  • $10,000 in fines
  • 2 – 20 years in prison
  • 180-days to 2-years driver’s license suspension
