Misdemeanor DUI's In Stillwater

If you have been arrested for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) for Alcohol, it is imperative for you to know your rights under Oklahoma law. If a police officer has reason to believe that you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they will ask you to take a breathalyzer test. The State of Oklahoma operates under "implied consent" whereby if you refuse to take the breathalyzer test, you can be subject to immediate license revocation. This will impact your ability to drive legally, as well as the DUI being placed on your permanent legal record. 

It is of urgent need that you call an attorney immediately to represent you in this criminal matter. Our experienced Stillwater DUI attorneys understand the legal process you are getting ready to incur. There will be fines and penalties assessed by a judge for your particular legal matter which is why it is so important to have an attorney that can fight for your justice. Our DUI attorneys will educate you on what your rights are under Oklahoma law, and how they can help fight for you. 

The BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) legal limit for drunken driving is 0.08%. However, a police officer may choose to arrest a driver with a BAC below .08%. You can be charged with Driving While Intoxicated (a lesser form of DUI) if your BAC is 0.05% or above.  Additionally, if you are under the age of 21, you can be arrested for DUI even if your BAC is lower than 0.08%.

What to Expect

DUI's are a very serious offense in the State of Oklahoma. You will most likely be subject to multiple fines, penalties, equipment acquisition, classroom education, community service, and an ignition interlock device. An ignition interlock device is required to be installed in your vehicle after your first DUI. There is a network of service centers approved by the state where you are able to lease, install, and verify your device with the state. 

"Oklahoma laws require that any driver convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle, aggravated DUI, with a blood alcohol content of 0.15 or higher, must install an ignition interlock device on every vehicle they own or which is registered to them. As a result of conviction, an interlock will be required for 18 months for first-time offenders; second-time offenders will be required to use an interlock for four years if their BAC exceeds .08. Any additional DUI convictions will result in the use of an interlock for five years."

- Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation

In Oklahoma, a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) charge is typically classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony offense, depending on the specific circumstances of the case. A misdemeanor DUI charge is the less severe of the two, and generally applies in cases where no one was injured or killed, and where the driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) was below a certain threshold.

The process for a misdemeanor DUI charge in Oklahoma typically follows the following steps:

  1. Arrest: If a law enforcement officer has reason to believe that a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may pull the driver over and conduct a field sobriety test. If the driver fails the test, they will likely be arrested and taken to a police station for further testing.
  2. Chemical Testing: Once at the police station, the driver will be given a breathalyzer test or a blood test to determine their BAC. If their BAC is found to be over the legal limit of .08%, they will be charged with DUI.
  3. Initial Appearance: After the arrest, the driver will be taken before a judge for an initial appearance. At this hearing, the judge will inform the driver of the charges against them, and the driver will have the opportunity to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty.
  4. Pre-Trial Conference: If the driver pleads not guilty, a pre-trial conference will be scheduled. This is a meeting between the prosecutor and the defense attorney to discuss the case and possibly negotiate a plea bargain.
  5. Trial: If a plea bargain cannot be reached, the case will go to trial. At trial, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the driver was driving under the influence. The defendant has the right to be represented by an attorney and to present evidence and witnesses in their defense.
  6. Sentencing: If the driver is found guilty, they will be sentenced by the judge. The sentencing can include fines, community service, probation, and possibly even a short jail sentence.

Jon Dean Green


I turned to Ball Morse Lowe PLCC when I needed my mother's estate probated in Oklahoma. It involved mineral rights and I live in California and my mother had not lived in OK for over 60 years. I wanted a firm that would do this correctly and be reasonable in cost. Brian Hill was a pleasure to work with. He and his staff were professional, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They made the experience of probate painless, explained things as we went along, and were clear in their expectation of what they would need from me to move the process forward. I am so glad I found them and appreciate deeply all they accomplished on my behalf.
