DUI consequences involve more than just fines or jail

In order to reduce the risks associated with intoxicated drivers, Oklahoma has implemented severe penalties for those charged with driving while under the influence (DUI) offenses. Repeat offenders, especially, face harsh consequences, even if no one got hurt as a result of the alleged drunk driving. The higher your blood alcohol content (BAC), the stiffer the potential penalties for driving. A third offense in a ten-year period, even with a low BAC, could result in up to seven years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines and the loss of your license for three years after incarceration.
