The State of Oklahoma aggressively prosecutes drivers who are accused of driving under the influence. If your blood alcohol content is at or above .08 or if you refuse to take a breath test after an officer pulls you over on suspicion of drunk driving, you will be charged with a DUI. If convicted, the consequences can affect every area of your life.
There are two different ways your license can be suspended if you are facing a DUI in Oklahoma. The Department of Public Safety will automatically suspend your license 30 days after your arrest unless you request an administrative hearing within 15 days. And if you are found guilty of the criminal DUI charge, you could also face suspension as part of your criminal sentencing.
Even a first offense DUI can result in restrictions on your freedom. Believe it or not, time behind bars could be a possibility. You may also be required to serve community service hours, report to a probation officer or have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle.
