Criminal Law

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, there were 131,877 crimes committed in Oklahoma in 2016. Look at the numbers more closely, and you’ll see that between 2015 and 2016, both violent and non-violent crimes were on the rise.

As much as the data can teach us about trending crime, we at Farrar & Farrar, P.C. know that there’s always more to the story than what mere numbers can reveal. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to protect the rights of the criminally accused throughout the greater Tulsa area. No matter the charge or charges you’re facing, we are prepared to fight for you.

DUI and DWI

Every state seems to have its own take on what constitutes a DWI versus a DUI. In Oklahoma, the difference is pretty simple: If, when pulled over, your blood alcohol content (BAC) is found to be less than 0.08%, you can be charged with a DWI. If your BAC is 0.08% or higher, you can be charged with a DUI.

As you can imagine, the DUI charge carries harsher penalties than that of a DWI. For a DUI first offense, you could face one or more of the following:

  • 10 days to 1 year in jail
  • Up to $1,000 in fines
  • A 6-month driver’s license revocation

If this is your second or third offense, if you are a minor, or if you hurt a person or damaged their property, the consequences only get more severe. But no matter how minor or serious your charge may appear right now, having a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney on your side can make a huge difference. Before you do anything else, do yourself a favor and set up a free consultation with our law firm. We will tell you honestly how serious your situation is and help you put together a game plan to fight back against any DUI or DWI charge you may be facing.

Drug Possession

Oklahoma’s laws on drug possession were recently updated. As of July 1st, 2017, if you are caught with a small amount of drugs, you will be charged at the misdemeanor level. This charge carries similar penalties to that of a first-time DUI (up to $1,000 in fines and 1 year in jail). These are just a few of the drugs (or, to use the official terminology, “controlled dangerous substances”) that can lead to a drug possession misdemeanor:

  • Methamphetamine
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana

Of course, the penalties for drug charges become much more severe when you cross the line from simple drug possession to possession with the intent to deliver, manufacture, or distribute.

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes like domestic violence, assault, battery, and even murder involve a lot of “he said, she said.” There’s the story of the person who is accusing you, and then there is your story. It’s up to the Oklahoma justice system to figure out who is telling the truth and what should happen to you moving forward.

Our job, as criminal defense lawyers, is to give you a safe, judgment-free place to tell us what happened, then fight tooth and nail to make sure the other side hears you as well. We understand that sometimes you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sometimes you make a mistake and immediately regret it. And sometimes you simply have to act in self-defense. We get it. And, more importantly, we know how to present your case in a way that gets through to any judge and jury counsel.

Don’t let a criminal charge determine the rest of your life. Call us for a free consultation, and fight to take your life back.
