Question: When would a DUI charge be considered a felony in Oklahoma?
Answer: Your first one’s going to be a misdemeanor. Under the new change in the law, if you get another DUI within 10 years of a, right now a state charge or a DUI out of a court of record, that is going to become a felony. If you get in a serious bodily injury accident, that’s felony DUI. If you kill somebody, obviously that’s going to be felony DUI if not manslaughter. If you have a child in the car, you typically get child endangerment and potentially felony DUI. But really, it’s just if you have priors and you get subsequent ones within 10 years, they’re going to be enhanced to felonies. And it just keeps going up in punishment range.
