Being charged with causing the death or serious injury of another is a very serious charge in Texas. If convicted of one of these types of offenses, you face not only the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence, but if more than one person was killed or injured, the judge is permitted to stack each sentence — forcing you to complete each prison sentence individually. At Hurley & Guinn, we have represented many individuals charged with intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault. Our criminal defense lawyers are committed to building a strong defense for those accused of these offenses.

Intoxication Assault Defense Attorney • Serving Midland, Abilene, Amarillo
In a prosecution for intoxication manslaughter or intoxication assault, the prosecution is not required to prove that the accused intended to cause the death. Nor is it required to prove that the accused recklessly caused the death. All the prosecution has to prove is that the person was intoxicated and by reason of that intoxication caused the death or serious bodily injury of another. Many times prosecutors will seek a conviction only proving that the accused was intoxicated and death or serious bodily injury occurred. An experienced defense lawyer, like those at Hurley & Guinn, will not let this happen. No matter who you decide to hire, your attorney must force the prosecutor to prove that intoxication actually caused the accident.
