Any drunk driving or drug-related DUI charge is a serious matter, whatever the exact circumstances and wherever the arrest occurred. Please recognize that: a basic first-offense Oklahoma DUI conviction can bring a sentence of up to one year in jail, a $1,000 fine plus hundreds in additional fees, driver's license suspension and more.

"Aggravating factors" such as a prior DUI conviction or the presence of a person under 18 in the vehicle significantly increase the potential for a lengthy jail sentence and other life-changing penalties.

Special laws and penalties — including driver's license suspension for up to two full years — apply if you are arrested for DUI when you are under 21.
