Consult an Attorney When Assistance Needed
Video Transcribed: What is a 90% crime in Oklahoma? I’m an attorney in Tulsa Okla, James Wirth, and we’re talking about different percentages for crimes. We talked in detail about 85% of crimes. That’s where it’s a violent offense that’s on the list specifically listed by statute. If you’re convicted of one of those, you have to serve at least 85% of your sentence before you’re eligible for parole, but now we’re talking about the 90% offenses.
It means you have to serve at least 90% of your sentence before you’re eligible to earn earned credit. And that is where based on your level, you may earn more than one day’s time for one day served, but you cannot earn any of that until you serve at least 90% of your time for this offense.
And what is that one offense that’s a 90% crime? It’s manufacturing, attempting to manufacture or possession of a precursor with intent to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance, CDS, within 2,000 feet of a school. If it’s a second or more offense, then it’s a 90% crime.
You have to serve at least 90% before you can earn those additional credits.
