Felonies are the most serious type of criminal charge. Depending on the charge, sentencing can vary, but most carry at least one year in prison. The most serious crimes can carry a life prison sentence.
Common felonies in Oklahoma include:
Knowingly Concealing Stolen Property (KCSP)
Assault with a dangerous or deadly weapon
Possession with intent to distribute
2nd or Subsequent DUI
Felony charges are not something to play around with. We believe every person deserves the best representation available and we know that our team of attorneys, with over 40 years of legal experience, can offer that.
Misdemeanors may be a step down from felonies, but many still carry hefty fines and up to a year in jail. Additionally, being convicted of a misdemeanor means subsequent charges and convictions could be felonies.
Like felonies, each individual misdemeanor has its own punishment range. A misdemeanor conviction can lead to incarceration in county jail, a fine, or both. Common misdemeanors include:
Assault and Battery
We know it's tempting to represent yourself in a misdemeanor charge, but we believe the costs far outweigh the benefits. Our clients have seen reduced jail time, lesser fines, and waived charges completely. Representation makes all the difference.
In Oklahoma, it's possible to remove a criminal charge, permanently, from your record. Criminal convictions can affect every area of your life, including employment, housing, and even relationships. The social stigma attached to criminal convictions can be devastating.
Expungement isn't available in every case, but our legal team at Worden & Carbitcher can decipher whether this is an option for you. If it is, our team has decades of experience with successful expungements. A lifetime criminal record, or not, is on the line.
