In order to be convicted for Intoxication Manslaughter the State must produce evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that you were not only intoxicated, but your intoxication was the cause of the ultimate result. In other words, but for the alleged intoxication, the accident and death would not have occured. Your Intoxication Manslaughter Criminal Defense Attorneys will lead a strategic investigation to determine the actual cause of the accident. When another source is the cause, a “concurrent cause” will be raised. A concurrent cause is based on the principle that a factor other than your intoxication caused the result. As such, the State can not prove beyond a reasonable doubt the necessary elements of Intoxicatio Manslaughter.
