Oklahoma was considered one of the harshest states for drug possession since simple possession can result in felony charges. However, starting July 7, 2017, simple possession of every drug is considered a misdemeanor.
The maximum jail time is one year, and the maximum fine is $1,000. There is no difference in the maximum penalty based on how many times someone has violated the law. So, for instance, someone could get caught with possession of a small amount of cocaine 15 times, and that person would be charged with a misdemeanor for each of those 15 cases.
Our Norman criminal defense lawyers are committed to finding the solution that is best for you. Do not risk spending time in jail or paying expensive fines without letting our legal team get your life back on track.
