Penalties for DUID
DUI-Drugs and DUI involving alcohol fall under the same statute in various
sections and carry the same range of punishment. The penalties for a DUI
conviction in Oklahoma depends on a variety of factors, including prior
DUI convictions, the level of intoxication at the time of arrest, and
whether anyone suffered an injury due to the DUI.
For a first-offense DUID is punishable by imprisonment in jail for not
less than ten days nor more than one year, as well as a maximum fine of
$1,000. In addition, an offender must complete a drug and alcohol assessment
and adhere to a recommended course of treatment, complete a specific amount
of hours for community service, install an ignition interlock device,
and complete a Victim Impact Panel (VIP).

Remember, there is no blood testing standard established in Oklahoma, meaning
that there is no fixed amount of drugs within the blood system that determines
conviction. Whether a driver is impaired is decided on a case-by-case
basis and at the prosecutor’s discretion. Do not risk facing serious
penalties without experienced and reliable legal assistance.
