Defending Your Misdemeanor Charge

In general, misdemeanor crimes in the state of Oklahoma are minor and punishable by a fine and no more than a maximum of one year in county jail.

Types Of Oklahoma Misdemeanors

Common examples of misdemeanors include:

  • Assault and battery
  • Vandalism
  • Public intoxication
  • Drunk driving
  • Marijuana possession
  • Check fraud

Deferred Sentence Instead Of Jail Time

If incarceration is a penalty associated with a particular misdemeanor offense, in some cases individuals can avoid jail time through what's known as a "deferred sentence" or "suspended sentence."

In these situations, individuals are provided probationary terms and, if completed successfully, will not have to go to jail.

Deferred Sentence Expungement

Further, individuals who complete their probationary conditions will also be granted expungement. This means that their case will be sealed from public access and will not stay on a permanent record.
