Understanding The Seriousness Of A Felony Conviction In Oklahoma

In the state of Oklahoma, a felony is a crime that carries much steeper penalties than a misdemeanor offense. Along with much higher fines, felony offenses carry significant prison time — and even a death sentence.

Indirect Consequences Of A Felony Conviction In Oklahoma

Many people are aware that a felony conviction will carry some type of fine or prison sentence. But, a felony conviction can affect individuals for the rest of their lives.

Those convicted of any type of felony will be barred from:

  • Owning a gun
  • Acquiring a professional license as an attorney, accountant, engineer or real estate professional
  • Holding public office
  • Partaking in jury duty
  • Voting

Limits To Housing And Employment Opportunities

In many cases, convicted felons applying for housing or rental opportunities will often be denied because of their criminal background. Many will also be denied employment opportunities, as many of today's employers conduct thorough background checks and deny individuals job opportunities due to their criminal history.
