What is a felony? Here in Oklahoma, it’s a serious crime that can be punishable by death or time served in a state prison. These kinds of crimes are severe, and they include murder, domestic violence charges, DUI’s, felony drug charges, and more. A felony is a higher degree of crime than a misdemeanor, which is why they carry stricter penalties.
In Oklahoma, unlike other states, there are no felony categories. That means your penalties are completely dependent upon the particular charge you’re faced with. If you have a previous record of a felony conviction, you can expect your punishment to be more severe in this state. You might be looking at more time in prison or the loss of parole. Repercussions are often more severe than you would face if you had just committed your first offense.
