What's considered a felony charge in Oklahoma?
Only a handful of states in the U.S. doesn't classify felonies into separate categories, and Oklahoma is one ofthem. In most states, felonies can be classified into Class A, Class B, or Class C felonies, based on the type of crime.
Without felony categories, the state of Oklahoma has penalties associated with each felony, instead of each class of felony. Hiring a good criminal defense attorney will help you understand the penalties for the felony charge you are facing.
