San Antonio Intoxication Manslaughter Attorney
Representing You in the Face of Serious Criminal Charges
Although intoxication manslaughter requires proof of a reckless act or reckless driving, it is one of the most difficult types of criminal charges to defend against. Acting recklessly means the accused knew his behavior posed a substantial and unjustifiable risk, but disregarded that risk and acted anyway.
Obviously, even defining this term doesn’t help much with the vagueness of this crime. Often, the decision about whether or not an act was done recklessly is up to the District Attorney. Because of this, it is crucial that you contact an attorney if you or a loved one has been arrested for intoxication manslaughter in Bexar County or throughout the state of Texas. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will be able to fight the charges against you by working to prove your behavior wasn’t reckless.

Why You Need a Lawyer for Manslaughter Charges
If you are facing charges of manslaughter, including intoxication manslaughter, it is essential that you work quickly to obtain skilled legal guidance. After so doing, it is advisable to not discuss your case with any officials but, rather, refer them to your attorney.
Giving information to police or homicide investigators that can later be used against you can negate certain criminal defense elements of your case. Refrain from discussing your case with law enforcement officials, investigators, or anyone other than your attorney.
