Penalties for Manslaughter

In Texas, manslaughter cases are often confusing and subjective since the state doesn’t officially distinguish between voluntary and involuntary manslaughter. In order to be convicted of manslaughter, the prosecution must demonstrate that the defendant caused the death of another person by acting in a reckless manner. There is no need to prove an element of knowledge, intent, or premeditation to be convicted of manslaughter.

Manslaughter is considered a second-degree felony, punishable by a prison sentence between two and 20 years, as well as a maximum fine of $10,000. A felony conviction can also have an adverse impact on a defendant’s future opportunities in life, such as access to employment and housing programs.
