What is Intoxication Assault and Manslaughter?
If you choose to drink and drive, you are a danger to yourself as well as others around you. Alcohol can affect your driving abilities in several different ways, such as decreased reaction time, loss of coordination, and difficulty making rational decisions. This can lead to serious auto accidents.
If you accidentally cause serious bodily harm to another person due to a DWI accident, you can be charged with intoxication assault. If the DWI accident causes another person to lose his or her life, you may be facing intoxication manslaughter charges.
Intoxication assault and intoxication manslaughter are generally felony charges. This can result in jail time as well as other severe consequences.
