Jack B. Carroll: Veteran Defense Attorney
Just because you were drunk while involved in a car accident doesn’t mean you are guilty.
That is not the standard for gaining a conviction for intoxication manslaughter in the court of law. The prosecution must prove that the incident was your fault for 1, that you were intoxicated for 2, and that your being intoxicated was the cause the homicide for 3. If the prosecution can’t prove all of the above within the legal standard of a “reasonable doubt”, you can not be convicted for intoxication manslaughter.
