Misdemeanor Criminal Defense
In Oklahoma, misdemeanor crimes are determined by the potential punishment imposed with the charge. For example, unless otherwise specified, misdemeanor offenses in Oklahoma carry a maximum sentence of up to one year in jail or $500 in fines. Oklahoma Courts have the ability to impose jail sentences, fines, or both. Even misdemeanors can haunt an offender in the future. A conviction may make it more difficult to change jobs or to get certain licenses. A conviction, even for a misdemeanor, gives the offender a criminal record. If you have been accused of a misdemeanor such as shoplifting or property damage, you should treat it seriously and contact a defense attorney.
