Fighting against Oklahoma felony and misdemeanor charges
If you have been charged with, arrested for, or believe you are being investigated for a crime, get immediate legal representation from an attorney experienced in Oklahoma criminal defense. It’s your Constitutional right, and it’s in your best interest.
Remember: anything that you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. It’s all too easy to say the wrong thing, to feel intimidated or get angry. None of this will work in your favor. At Patriot Law, we provide solid and vigorous defense against criminal charges, including:
Drug crimes: From misdemeanor possession of marijuana to more serious felony charges for manufacture or distribution, or possession with intent to distribute, you are likely facing a fine and, in more extreme cases, incarceration. Penalties under Oklahoma Statutes Title 63 can include fines of up to $500,000 and imprisonment for a minimum of 15 years.
Theft and property crimes: Shoplifting is the most commonly prosecuted crime in Oklahoma, and a conviction can cost you up to $500 in fines and 30 days in jail. Other property crimes include car/vehicle theft, credit card fraud, insurance fraud, tax fraud, and embezzlement, each of which can carry severe penalties, including steep fines, incarceration, loss of professional license, loss of firearms license and more.
DUI: Oklahoma courts take drunk driving or driving under the influence seriously. If you’ve been arrested for or charged with a DUI, make sure you invoke your right to an attorney as soon as possible. Even a first offense can get you up to 10 days in jail, a fine of up to $1,000 and suspension of your drivers’ license.
Violent crimes: Assault, carjacking, weapons charges, and first-degree burglary are all considered or potentially considered violent crimes. These generally carry the most severe penalties, including long prison sentences. Oklahoma is a capital punishment state.
Sex crimes: Even an allegation of a sex crime can ruin your reputation for a lifetime. A conviction will force you to register as a sex offender. Sex crimes include rape and indecent exposure, as well as “sexting.” Any sex offense against a minor, including possession or distribution of child pornography, often carry not only the greatest penalties, but also the greatest stigma. If you have been charged with or arrested for any type of sex offense, talk to a lawyer immediately.
