Driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicating substances is a crime in the State of Oklahoma – one that can range in punishment from a misdemeanor to a felony, and potentially jail time. Along with the criminal charges, there are also implications to your driving privileges simply for being arrested. You only have 15 days to request a hearing on whether your license should be revoked by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, so time is of the utmost essence; otherwise you may lose your right to drive altogether.
DUI/DWI charges are serious because they don’t just involve criminal charges, they involve your ability to get to work, go to school, travel, and any other activity you need to be able to drive.
