Oklahoma DUI Attorney
A DUI can have life-altering consequences.
If convicted of driving under the influence, you could lose your driver’s license, your job, and your future prospects. Your insurance rates will almost certainly increase, and you will also face substantial fines. In some cases, a guilty verdict may even result in jail time. If you are a college student, your school’s administration could take action that may jeopardize your degree; if you are in the military, your command might prosecute you further. If you possess a Commercial Driver’s license, or CDL, it could be disqualified for one year or lifetime.
Penalties for Oklahoma DUI Conviction
If you are found guilty of DUI in Oklahoma, you will face a minimum jail sentence of 10 days—even if it is your first DUI offense. Depending on the details of the case, you could serve up to one year in jail; depending on the court in which your charge is filed, you could end up paying as much as $1,000 in fines.
If you have prior DUI convictions on your record, your current case could be elevated to a felony DUI, which carries a minimum one-year jail sentence. Depending on the number of previous offenses, you could face up to 20 years in the state penitentiary if convicted.
A Word of Warning About Your Oklahoma Driver’s License
If you are arrested and charged with DUI in Oklahoma, the state affords you only 15 days from the time of your arrest to request a hearing with the Department of Public Safety. If the hearing is not requested within 15 days, your license will be automatically suspended, and you could lose your driving privileges for anywhere from six months to several years. Additionally, you could be required to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle for up to eight years.
