Defending Against Manslaughter and Vehicular Manslaughter Charges

Allegations of manslaughter or vehicular manslaughter can be particularly frightening since both have the potential to dramatically change the circumstances of your life. With that in mind, it will be critical that you retain experienced legal representation as early on in the legal process as you possibly can. An experienced legal representative will be able to help you ensure that your rights are being upheld throughout the criminal process. More critically, however, a good criminal defense attorney will be able to help you build a comprehensive legal strategy that challenges each and every aspect of your case in an attempt to either reduce or, ideally, altogether eliminate the charges brought against you.

Penalties for Manslaughter and Vehicular Manslaughter Attorneys

As second degree felonies in Texas, both manslaughter and vehicular manslaughter convictions are likely to be life-altering. Individuals convicted of either offense will likely face the following penalties:

  • 2-20 years in prison
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Lifetime designation as a felon

The professional and personal consequences of being a felon can be devastating. A San Antonio criminal defense attorney can help you fully understand the implications of your exact charges and may fight on your behalf to protect your future.
