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.
