Texas Efforts to Combat Drunk Driving
In June of 2023, Texas Governor Gregg Abbot signed a law ordering judges in Texas Courts to order criminals convicted of intoxicated manslaughter to pay child support to the victim’s children until they turn 18. If the convicted driver is unable to pay because he/she is incarcerated, the convicted driver must begin monthly support payments determined by the court within a year of release and must enter a payment plan to pay for the amount in arrears.
