APC Oklahoma Attorney



An Actual Physical Control charge (APC) occurs when you have control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol above the legal limit, an intoxicating substance, or a combined influence of alcohol and any other intoxicating substance. 

APC charges are serious and need to be handled by a lawyer who has years of experience representing clients accused of this crime. Our attorneys at Worden & Carbitcher have over two decades of combined experience, as well as the knowledge and skills necessary to win cases for our clients that have been charged with an APC offense in Oklahoma.

APC Charge vs. DUI: 

An APC charge differs from a DUI charge in that you do not have to be operating the motor vehicle to be charged.  A classic example of an APC charge situation is waiting in the parking lot inside your car after drinking.


Similar to a DUI, your first APC offense is typically a misdemeanor. The punishment is 10 days to one year in jail and up to a $1000 fine. Subsequent offenses can result in a felony which can include time in prison and higher fines.
