Listen to how intoxication assault crimes are prosecuted in Dallas County Texas. Attorney Richard C. McConathy discusses issues pertaining to defending those accused of Intoxication Assault in Dallas County.
When dealing with the charge of intoxicated assault, it’s a DWI with an accident and an injury. But that’s the key question- What is that injury? Bruises? Contusions? A little whiplash? That is not going to be enough to stick you in front of the district judge. Unfortunately, if the victim has one broken bone, regardless of how small, including just the pinky, a tough prosecutor is going to come after you and try to hit you with a third-degree felony.
