Felony DUI Laws in Oklahoma

Under the best of circumstances, being arrested and convicted for driving under the influence (DUI) in Oklahoma can make you lose your license for a month and pay $1,000 in fines. If your DUI charge has grounds for being escalated to a felony, your situation will be more dire.

Penalties for a felon DUI in Oklahoma include:

  • 1 to 10 years of incarceration
  • Up to $5,000 in fines
  • 1-year license suspension
  • Ignition interlock device (IID) installation

If you live in Oklahoma and have been charged with a felony DUI, take a moment to call (866) 590-8173 and discuss your legal options with our Norman criminal defense lawyers from the Law Offices of Keith J. Nedwick, P.C. With the help of our highly-experienced, highly-praised litigators, you may be able to challenge the prosecution and have your charges fully dismissed.

How a DUI Becomes a Felony

A DUI is a misdemeanor in Oklahoma by default but there are some circumstances that will automatically push a DUI into felony status.

A DUI may become a felony charge if you have:

  • Another DUI conviction within the last 10 years.
  • Two or more prior DUI convictions on your record.
  • Injured someone due to intoxicated driving.
  • A child in your vehicle when you are arrested.

In addition to the aforementioned penalties, a felony DUI conviction will carry with it the same consequences as any other felony. Educational organizations, employers, landlords, and even creditors can turn you away for having a felony mark on your record. You could also lose some of your constitutional rights if you are a felon, including your right to carry a firearm, vote in certain elections, and leave the country.

Take the Gloves Off & Get Ready for a Fight

When a felony DUI charge is brought before a court in Oklahoma, you can be certain that the judge takes it seriously. Prosecutors will also be more adamant about your conviction, as an opportunity to add a felony conviction to their track record is enticing. Be sure you are prepared for legal battle ahead by knowing your rights well before your court date.

Our Norman DUI lawyers can be your advocates and defenders. All you need to do to begin is call (866) 590-8173 and ask about scheduling a consultation.
