What is the default punishment for a felony in the state of Oklahoma? I’m Oklahoma Lawyer James Wirth and that is the question that we have. As an attorney early in practicing law, one thing that you learn is sometimes you pull up a crime and it’s got the range of punishment and sometimes it doesn’t. And the question becomes, if it doesn’t list with the range of punishment, what is it?

Well, there’s some default statutes regarding that. So if you’re looking at what the range of punishment is for a crime and it’s not specifically listed for that crime, it goes to the default. So if we’re talking about a felony, you’re looking at Title 21, Section 9. And it says, except in cases where a different punishment is prescribed by this title or by some existing provision of law, every offense declared to be a felony is punishable by a fine not exceeding $1,000 or by imprisonment in the state penitentiary not exceeding two years or both fine and imprisonment.

To get that, you’re gonna wanna talk to an attorney privately and confidentially.
