Fighting For Justice In The Face Of Felony Charges

A Felony Conviction Has Lasting Impacts On Every Facet Of Your Life

In Oklahoma, criminal charges fall into the misdemeanor or felony category, depending on the type and severity of the crime. Felonies are generally more serious crimes punishable by one year or more in prison. A felony also has higher fines and costs than a misdemeanor charge.

Crimes that can be charged as felonies include:

Because Oklahoma does not categorize felonies into degrees, the penalties for each felony depend on the crime itself. For example, a conviction of possessing child pornography can result in $25,000 in fines and a prison sentence of up to 20 years. Some severe crimes are also punishable by the death penalty.

However, more penalties exist for a felony conviction beyond prison time and hefty fines. Convicted felons are not allowed to vote, possess firearms, cannot seek state employment and sometimes cannot drive for a period of time after release. In Oklahoma, state law prevents felons from possessing a liquor license, becoming a realtor, becoming a corporate director or bank officer and forbids convicted felons from maintaining professional licenses in fields such as law, medicine and accounting.
