Intoxication Assault Intoxication assault occurs when a passenger is severely injured, and this can lead to charges being brought against the driver of the vehicle. Although no malicious intent to harm the passenger was involved the only evidence a prosecutor needs to provide is that the driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident.
An Intoxication Assault conviction can carry a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. Let's not forget about the fines which could be as high as $10,000, a suspended drivers license, a tarnished criminal record that will reflect a third-degree felony and the possible loss of employment and a college education. The risks are beyond measure if you do not have an experienced attorney in your corner to assist you with the legalities of an intoxication assault.
