Handling Complicated DUI Cases
If you are charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in the state of Oklahoma, you may face criminal and/or civil penalties. A criminal charge is generally based on your blood alcohol content (BAC). Under state law, a BAC of .08 percent or higher is over the legal limit and can result in a DUI charge.
The potential penalties include:
- First offense – Up to one year in jail and/or fines up to $1,000
- Second offense within 10 years of the first – Up to five years in jail and/or fines up to $2,500
- Third and subsequent offenses – Up to 10 years in jail and/or fines up to $5,000
A BAC between .05% and .08% can result in a potential penalty of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $500. In addition to the criminal penalties, DUI charges can also result in the suspension or revocation of your license, which may last from six months to up to three years. The costs of a DUI are high. Don’t try to fight these charges without an experienced McAlester criminal defense attorney from our firm on your side.
