Understanding Manslaughter Charges in Texas

Manslaughter, although a lesser charge than murder, is a serious criminal offense that is a form of criminal homicide (causing the death of another person without lawful excuse). Under the Texas penal code, manslaughter is defined as recklessly causing the death of another.

For example, a person who is driving while intoxicated, runs through a red light, and causes a fatal auto accident may face manslaughter charges. Manslaughter is a second degree felony offense in Texas, punishable by up to 20 years in state prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
