Intoxication Assault, Manslaughter & Homicide

Aggressive San Antonio Lawyer Handles Cases of Intoxication Assault, Manslaughter and Homicide

Quality defense for people charged with violent crimes related to alcohol use

Intoxication manslaughter, assault and homicide are extremely difficult charges to defend against and carry a variety of severe consequences for the accused. If you face such charges, you need the legal counsel of an experienced and qualified attorney. With more than 27 years of experience through my firm, Kevin L. Collins, P.C., I have the skills and knowledge necessary to defend you. As a former prosecutor, I understand the tactics that we are likely to face in court. I tenaciously protect your rights and never stop fighting for you.

Intoxication manslaughter carries serious penalties

Manslaughter is the intentional killing of a human being without any premeditation or malice. However, there can also be involuntary manslaughter charges, which don’t require intent to kill a person or cause serious harm. Neither type of crime contains any premeditation ― that is an aspect of murder. Intoxication manslaughter is any manslaughter case where intoxication is an issue.

Vehicular manslaughter is a manslaughter committed due to illegal operation of a vehicle. A common cause of this is drunk driving. While drunk driving always carries serious penalties, a drunk driving charge resulting in a fatality is a felony that carries severe consequences such as:

  • Prison time and extended probation
  • Major fines
  • Loss of vehicle and driver license

In many cases, the best defense available to DWI lawyers is fighting the tactics used to acquire evidence in the case. This includes disputing the validity of the blood alcohol content testing, and the types of field sobriety tests used and attempting to classify the case as an involuntary rather than a standard manslaughter case. It is possible to minimize the penalties you face and to protect your rights. Contact a criminal defense lawyer today for assistance with intoxication-related crimes in Texas.
