Firm outlines common felony crimes in Oklahoma

Oklahoma does not have separate felony classes, but the following types of crimes are generally felonies in Oklahoma:

  • Violent crimes — These offenses include any crime that inflicts harm on a human being, such as aggravated assault, kidnapping, mayhem, homicide, or assisting a suicide. Robbery, which is theft accomplished by force or fear, is also a felony.
  • Sexual offenses — Rape and other sexual offenses where force is used or threatened, are felonies, along with as well as sexual acts involving minors. Possession of child pornography can result in a separate felony charge for every image held on a computer.
  • White collar crimes — Embezzlement, fraud, and tax evasion can be felonies depending on the dollar amounts involved. Securities fraud and racketeering are federal felonies.
  • Theft crimes — Even if a theft crime does not involve violence, the state might bring a felony count if the value of the stolen goods exceeds $1,000.
  • Drug crimes — If the amount of drugs involved is sufficient, authorities can charge possession with intent to distribute or drug trafficking.

Every felony crime carries a potential sentence of at least one year in prison. Depending on the nature of the charges, your previous record, and the facts of your case, prosecutors can seek a much longer term.

Skillful advocates represent motorists in Oklahoma felony DUI cases

Usually, a driver’s first conviction for DUI in Oklahoma is a misdemeanor. But a second or subsequent conviction for DUI within a 10-year period may be classified as a felony. If driving under the influence caused an accident that injured someone, you could be charged with felony DUI, even as a first offense. If the victim dies, you could be charged with manslaughter, which could draw a life sentence.
