Frisco Lawyer Defending Against All Types of Intoxication Offenses, Including Intoxication Manslaughter
The most common intoxication offense is of course drunk driving (see DWI). Other intoxication offenses include:
• DWI with a child passenger, a felony punishable by 180 days to two years imprisonment
• Intoxication assault
• Intoxication manslaughter
• Public intoxication
• Boating while intoxicated
• Flying while intoxicated
Defense of Intoxication Offenses
To gain a conviction in an intoxication offense case, the prosecutor must prove guilt in the underlying crime and that a substantive cause of the crime was intoxication. A smart, aggressive defense lawyer like Ms. Alexander knows how to challenge the prosecution’s case on one or both of these fronts.
For example, in an automobile accident case, expert witness testimony and sophisticated accident reconstruction technology can be used to prove that the accident was not caused by intoxication.
Your defense attorney must also know how to deal with the alleged victims. Prosecutors often play on the sympathy of the jury. A smart defense lawyer can help the jury see past these tactics and look at the facts. She must be able to cross-examine alleged victims with a careful balance of strength and empathy.
