San Antonio Intoxication Assault Lawyer
Explained by a Criminal Defense Attorney in San Antonio
What exactly is an intoxication assault? In the State of Texas, the law has determined that if someone drives a vehicle while intoxicated, and the intoxication results in an accident that causes injury, you can be charged with an intoxication assault. In order for the courts to rule it as an intoxication assault, "serious bodily injury" must be present.
"Serious Bodily Injury" can be defined as an injury that causes:
- Serious risk of death
- Permanent disfigurement
- Protracted loss of bodily members or organs
- Impairment of bodily members or organs
If the accident results in death, you could be facing a charge of intoxication manslaughter which bears even heavier consequences.
Severity of Intoxication Assault Charges
Intoxication assault is a third-degree felony punishable by a minimum of two years in prison. The government does not have to prove mental culpability in order to convict you for this offense. They can even take blood samples without a warrant or your consent. Even if the injured party does not want to press charges, it is ultimately up to the government to decide how to move forward with charges.

“I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney.”I contacted Mr. Ambrosino about an issue we were having about two months ago. He was very responsive and always easy to communicate with. If ever I had a question during the process, he was quick to respond with an answer. He was kind enough to even email me while on vacation with his own family which showed he truly cares about his clients. Mr. Ambrosino took the time to educate me on the current laws and the court process. He sent me all the court filings and paperwork for my own files and always kept me up to date. In the end we received the outcome we were hoping for and I attribute that to Mr. Ambrosino’s hard work and knowledge. I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney. Thank you for your help Mr. Ambrosino.- C. S.
